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.

UCanRow2's insight:

"If you've ever looked at the unloved rowing machine (also known as an ergometer) sitting in the corner, it's time to give the machine a second glance."  Look for a certified instructor in your area to get the most from your workout.

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.
