Metabolism

Updated: May 26

Jump Start + Weeks 1-4 | Metabolism: includes all the chemical activities in your body.

Two forms: catabolism and anabolism.


The "Bad One" = Catabolism: BREAKS DOWN * Breaks DOWN Muscle/Tissue * Can cause body to store fat, deplete muscle gains, hold water and fatigue, not enough nutrients especially protein, pain in joints and muscles.


The "Good One" = Anabolism: BUILDS *Builds Muscle/Tissue *See results faster, more effective workouts, more energy, decrease stress, release water, better appetite, better recovery, generally better mood and overall health and wellbeing, balanced sugar/insulin levels.


Staying Anabolic … Things you can control:

  • Macronutrients: proteins, fats and carbohydrates eaten in the correct ratio

  • Never miss meals, always eat breakfast & post workout recovery

  • Adequate Sleep and Recovery, Avoid Overtraining/Overuse

  • Optimize Hormone Balance, see your Doctor for bloodwork

  • Minimize Pollutants and Stress, Practice Breathing/Yoga and Stretch

  • Water – Min ½ body weight Ounces

  • Correct Training and Injury Prevention

  • Eat when hungry and until full

  • Spilt meals throughout day to keep body burning efficiently

  • Resistance Training= More Muscle = Burn More Calories at rest = Higher metabolism

  • Short burst workouts if you don't have a ton of time = Choose weights!
