6 Ways to Naturally Boost Your Metabolism

6 Ways to Naturally Boost Your Metabolism | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it
Yes, age, genetics and body size play a role in the speed of your metabolic rate. But there are natural ways to boost your metabolism. Learn how here.

 

Metabolism: We’ve all got one, but some people’s are “faster” or “slower” than others’. And that matters, because the rate at which your body burns calories and converts fuel to energy can also affect how easily you gain or lose weight, how at-risk you are for diabetes, and how much pep you’ve got in your step. While much of your metabolic rate is determined by genetics, age, gender, and body size, there are some lifestyle changes that can, quite literally, speed up the process.

 

It’s important to note that metabolism can’t be solely held responsible for weight gain or loss — someone with a super-fast burn can’t stay slim eating junk food and not exercising, while people with slower metabolisms aren’t automatically doomed to an overweight fate.

The Art of Active Sitting

The Art of Active Sitting | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it
Spending 8-plus hours at your desk doesn't have to ruin your body. Add these 5 daily movements to your routine.

 

You’ve heard the news by now: Sitting is the new smoking. It’s been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and early death. Not to mention possible potato-like proportions. But with most of us logging hours at desk jobs (and recovering from hard workouts with Netflix binges), can it really be that bad?

 

Yes, indeed, says Vladimir Friedman, DC, CCSP, of Accelicare Sports Chiropractic in Manhattan. “When you’re in an improper slouched or seated posture for extended periods of time, there is physiological change in the body," he says. "In addition to the proven disease risks, things start to lock up. Tissues can weaken and the effects can be degenerative.” (In fact, Friedman often shows clients how to apply kinesio tape in a crisscross pattern at the low back to teach them how to stay in proper alignment when sitting.) 

 

Friedman likens the idea to time spent in a cast: When muscle tissue is continually immobile, it shortens and shrinks over time and weakens. But give your body a load using your own body weight—from standing to squatting to taking a walk—and the measure of stress provided helps strengthen it.

Obesity 'linked to 10 cancers'

Obesity 'linked to 10 cancers' | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it

Being overweight and obese puts people at greater risk of developing 10 of the most common cancers, according to research in the Lancet medical journal.

 

Scientists calculated individuals carrying this extra weight could contribute to more than 12,000 cases of cancer in the UK population every year.

 

They warn if obesity levels continue to rise there may be an additional 3,700 cancers diagnosed annually.

 

The study of five million people is the largest to date to confirm the link.
