Metabolism is the breakdown of food in the body, and turns it into energy that allows us to function efficiently every day. This energy is what keeps our hearts pumping, our brains functioning and our bodies working. Metabolism also plays a big role in maintaining and losing weight. The faster your metabolism works, the more you become active, the more calories you will burn.
Other people naturally have a faster metabolism, inherited from their genes, but according to a study; people with normally slower metabolism can take control and speed it up by making a few changes with their daily routine.
Regular exercise can help boost metabolism, but intense workout like strength training and lifting weights is a lot better. By doing this, you will increase your muscle mass and lean muscles burn more calories than fat. People with more muscle mass are proven to have a higher resting metabolic rate.
