How Metabolism Helps To Lose Weight?
Losing weight isn’t possible without metabolism. Metabolism is the ability of the body to burn fat to supply energy to the body. So with higher metabolism we consume more calorie than usual. So it becomes an important factor that affects our weight.
You might have seen that some people eat small quantity but gain weight quickly. While some people don’t gain weight, instead of eating a large amount of food.
The factor affecting is the rate of metabolism.
People with low metabolism rate can’t burn calorie, and it is stored in the form of fat in the cell. While people with higher metabolismm, burn excess calories to prevent storage.
So it becomes important to improve our metabolism if we wish to lose weight.
What can we do from our side to improve our metabolism if we have a slow metabolism?
This question most common to every one of us.
A healthy lifestyle naturally improves metabolism. So we must know few mistakes we do daily that are killing our metabolism.

1. Night Mistakes
A. Sleeping Late Night
The sleeping pattern can considerably affect our metabolism. It is found that during deep sleep body utilize more calorie to burn food.
These nutrients are utilized to recover the muscle tear and injury. So body burns more calorie for recovery of muscle and to build new cells.
But it is only possible if we get a deep sleep for a longer time.
A deep sleep for 7-8 hour is recommended for proper recovery and development of muscle. So if you are missing your sleep, then you slower the recovery of body and metabolism.
Also, it is found that people who are not able to complete their sleep tend to eat more calorie loaded foods.
So avoid late night work. You can schedule it for the morning or do it earlier as possible without missing your deep sleep.
B. Late Night Eating
Late night eating is another reason you might gain weight. We often work late night or enjoy a late night movie.
But by changing the lifestyle, you might risk your complete health. It is most common when we are still awake late night; we get calorie dense food available in the kitchen.
During the late night, we are not interested in doing any work to get healthy food. So we usually eat cookies, pastries, etc. that are readily available in our kitchen.
Another side-effect of late night eating is that it increases body glycogen level.
Due to increased glycogen level, we are not able to eat a healthy diet in the morning. Also, the food we eat in the morning is stored in the body. So it may boost your weight gain.
So avoid sleeping late night and avoid eating late night. If you are not able to go to sleep one night due to some work, then you can try fruit instead of calorie dense food.
