Metabolism

Your metabolism is responsible for converting the food you eat and the beverages you drink into sustainable energy. Everyone’s metabolism operates at a different speed, but the more efficiently it works, the quicker you’ll notice changes in your own body.

There are two different phases of the metabolic process. The first is anabolism.  Definition:”The phase of metabolism in which complex molecules, such as the proteins and fats that make up body tissue, are formed from simpler ones. (www.dictionary.com) 

Anabolism is the process of building and repairing. It generates new cells from simple molecules and stores energy that your body will access when you need it.

Catabolism is the second phase and is the opposite of anabolism. In this stage, your body takes large molecules and breaks them down to convert into sustainable energy.  This process releases energy that works to help maintain proper muscle activity.  It’s also during catabolism that your body breaks down waste and sends it out to be removed.

How can you boost your metabolism? What you eat, when you eat, and how often you exercise all have effects on the rate of your metabolism. Listed below are some helpful tips.
