Metabolism 101: Why Metabolic Boosters Work
The world of weight loss is full of scientific buzzwords, but “metabolism” is one you should actually be paying attention to. The metabolic process is an essential bodily function, not just for burning fat, but also for keeping you energized and maintaining your overall health. But what is the metabolism, exactly? Let’s keep reading to learn more:
Metabolism = Energy
The key to understanding how metabolic boosters help you lose weight is first understanding how your metabolism works. “Metabolism” is the process your body goes through when converting food and drink into energy. This may surprise you, but your metabolism’s main job is pretty simple: 70% of the energy processed by your metabolism goes into basic bodily functions, including breathing, regulating your hormones, pacing your heartbeat, and keeping your cells functioning as they should. Your metabolism is always working for you, even while you’re at rest!
You Can Control Your Metabolism -- Until You Can’t
While metabolism is an involuntary function that your body will perform regardless of whether you’re thinking of it or not, you may have heard in the past that physical activity can give the process a jump start. This is true! The more you get moving, the better your metabolism will perform, helping you process food faster and lose weight in the process. Unfortunately, while we all can control how much we exercise, there are certain inherent factors that determine how well our metabolism will perform, and how much weight we can lose on our own. These factors include:
- Body size
- Muscle mass
If you’re having trouble meeting your weight loss goals, any of these factors may be posing a serious obstacle that is completely out of your control. Fortunately, there are medically-proven methods that can help you overcome these obstacles and kick-start your metabolism.
Metabolic Boosters Can Help
Metabolic boosters are some of the best, most scientifically-proven solutions available for a metabolism that isn’t quite performing the way you’d like it to. When you reach out to the team at Right Weight Center about starting metabolic boosters, here’s what you can expect:
- A medical evaluation
- A vitals check (weight, height, BMI, blood pressure, waist measurement)
- B12 injection
Each body is unique, and there are different types of metabolic boosters designed to produce different results based on your individual needs and goals. Along with a personalized diet plan and exercise assessment that works to support and measure your progress, metabolic boosters can not only help you lose weight, but help boost your immune system and protect you from disease in the process.
