Your goal should be to eliminate the belly fat before you lose the total body weight. With that said, there are a lot of factors that go into the metabolism. Let’s take a look at some of these.
How much you weigh and how active you are, is what determines your metabolic rate. Losing fat in the body also depends on your basal metabolic rate. BMR is the number of calories you burn at rest.
Metabolism also deals with the activity of the food we eat and the amount of exercise we do in the day. These are critical factors in the overall health of our bodies.
The more active you are, the higher your metabolism is going to be. The same is true for obese people. The more calories you eat, the higher your metabolism will be. But if you are obese, it will be even higher than usual.
Keep in mind that the level of fat is directly proportional to the metabolism. So a high amount of fat in the body will have a slower metabolism than a low amount of fat in the body.
Also, our metabolism is largely determined by our genetics. So this means that if your parents or grandparents had high metabolic rates, then your chances of having a high metabolic rate is very high. You will have a higher metabolism no matter what.
One of the biggest things about metabolism is that it is usually considered to be static. So as long as you are eating the same diet, doing the same amount of exercise, and still staying in shape, your metabolism is still going to be the same. It’s always going to be high.
However, your metabolism is changed when your body has to work harder to get nutrients from the food you eat. When we get into physical activity, our bodies start to use up their metabolic energy as our bodies are forced to work. The higher your metabolic rate is going to be, the more calories you will burn when you are in physical activity.
But don’t be alarmed if your metabolism drops during times of physical activity. Your body is telling you that it needs to make up for the calories you just burned.
The good news is that when your metabolism goes down during physical activity, the body simply stores the energy as fat. This is why a high metabolism is really important for fat loss.
So if you really want to lose belly fat, you need to keep your metabolism high. If you cannot maintain your metabolism at a high level, then you are not burning enough calories to get rid of fat. The key is to burn enough calories to gain muscle mass, rather than being solely focused on fat loss.
