3 Advantages of Having Fast Metabolism…


Fast metabolism is an amazing thing for your body to have. This is due to the fact that it has multiple benefits for your body.

Some people have a slow metabolism while others have a very fast metabolic rate. Some of the benefits of having a fast metabolic rate are very prominent while others are smaller but still present. People have a fast metabolism due to many reasons; one of them is their genetics.

Here are three main factors why having a fast metabolism is a great thing to have.

1. Cleanse the body

The higher your metabolic rate is, the healthier your body is. This is due to the fact that having a fast metabolism gets rid of toxins and fats in your body faster than if you have a slow metabolism.

A fast metabolism cleanses your body out of these toxins through bowel movement, respiration as well as urination. Because your body breaks down the food you eat faster than other people, the waste left over by the food does not last a long time in your body. On the other hand a slow metabolism lets your body retain the waste left over as well as storing more fats because not all the food is broken down during the metabolic reaction.

2. Energy

3 Advantages of Having Fast Metabolism

One of the prominent effects of having fast metabolism is that it provides you with more energy than having a slow metabolism does. This is good for you both in the short term because of the burst of energy it gives you, as well as the fact that it gives you a better mood because you do not feel sluggish due to lack of energy.

Having a faster metabolic rate helps you lose excess weight faster in a healthier manner than reducing the amount of food you take in does. If you want to learn how to boost your metabolism, you can do so by learning more about what the process entails. By understanding the process, you will be able to lose weight in a healthy way as well as get more overall energy.

3. Better blood

A faster metabolism has two main effects on your blood. A faster metabolism gives your body better blood circulation to all your body parts. The blood you have in your body has white blood cells, which are the body’s defense against some foreign things such as bacteria and viruses. By having better circulation the white blood cells are able to reach and take care of bacteria faster.

How to speed up your metabolism…

You may be thinking, how do I speed up my metabolism? 

You can do lots of things to improve how your body burns and utilises energy without it storing fat. Here are two of the best ways to do this:

Keto Meal Plan – Doing a keto diet will speed up the metabolic process as your body switches from burning carbs for fuel to fats. People who follow a keto diet tend to get rapid weight loss results. It’s not uncommon to lose 16lbs in one month after following a strict keto meal plan. Keto foods are high in fat and low in carbohydrates. Keto foods include steak, mince, eggs, nuts, butter, and salmon. 

Exercise – if you want to speed up your metabolism, do more exercise. All activity is good, but if you really want to speed up your metabolism, then do resistance training. Aim for 8-12 reps per exercise and do three sets per muscle group. 

The best exercises are deadlifts, chin-ups, barbell rows, bench press, and squats. Alongside the weight training, make sure to lift with control, take 3/4s on the lowering part of each rep and 1-2s on the lifting phase.
