Boosting Metabolism For Faster Weight Loss

Reeving up metabolism is the holy grail of weight loss. Obviously, it’s the easiest way to burn fats but how fast your body burns fat depends on several things.  Some may have speedy metabolism but for most dieters, metabolism tends to slow down after age 40. Metabolism is the process by which your body converts the calories from the foods you eat into energy. It has three primary functions:

  • The conversion of fuel into energy to keep you going every day.
  • The breakdown and conversion of fuel into chemicals necessary for building, maintaining, and repair of the body.
  • The breakdown, processing, and excretion of body waste.

Weight loss happens when you have a faster metabolic rate. However, the opposite happens when you try to reduce your calorie intake. This scenario is very common to dieters who practice low-calorie diet without the aid of HCG hormone.

How HCG can boost metabolism

One of the many roles of the HCG hormone is to improve the metabolic functions even when on a very low-calorie diet. It’s a pro-hormone that helps your body makes more hormones including the hormone for muscle building. Without the HCG hormone, you will certainly lose weight. In fact, anybody can lose weight when on low-calorie restrictions but what you don’t know is that most of the weight that you have lost is due to muscle mass. It may look good on the scale but it’s actually bad for your shape and your metabolism. When you lost muscle mass, your metabolism slows down so much that you eventually stop losing weight. Then you quickly regain everything back plus even more.

The HCG hormone allows you to lose weight while protecting the muscle. You lost fat, become leaner, and get back in shape with more muscles. You have a stronger metabolism which can help you maintain your weight loss even after the HCG diet is over.

Cutting back on calories without the help of HCG

Consume too few calories without injecting the HCG hormone can lead to a vicious cycle of diet distress. One thing is for sure though the weight that you have lost will always be temporary. Now, aside from losing your muscle let’s take a look at other changes that will happen to your body when you try cutting back on calories without the HCG hormone.

  • Decreased metabolism

Cutting back on calories can slow down your metabolism by 30%. Your body will go into survival mode and starts breaking down muscle to release the stored glucose. You will feel sluggish and you will develop gastrointestinal problems like indigestions and constipation.

  • Cortisol hormone rises

Your brain runs on glucose and it needs a constant supply to keep everything running smoothly. Without sufficient calories, it won’t work at its peak capacity. There will be an imbalance of hormones particularly the cortisol hormone. This hormone is involved in inflammation and stress. High levels of cortisol hormone can trigger stress. A rise in cortisol can also negatively impact your body composition particularly your liver to produce glucose from muscle breakdown. Plus, high levels of cortisol can cause your stored fats to shift to the middle part of your body. After long calorie restrictions, you will notice that you’re carrying more fats on your tummy and around your waist.

  • You feel hungry most of the time

Eating too few calories will definitely leave you hungry most of the time but in the HCG Diet, the hormone will suppress your hunger as it accelerates your metabolism.

  • Decreased thyroid function

This gland is the master regulator of metabolism. When you reduce your calorie intake, the hormone that your thyroid gland produces drops. As a result, your metabolic rate also drops. HCG, being a pro- hormone, will stimulate your thyroid gland to produce more hormones to help speed up metabolism.

Ways to speed up your metabolism

  1. Take vitamin D supplement: Vitamin D is essential for preserving metabolism-reeving muscle tissue. You can actually nail around 90% of it from the approved-HCG diet foods that you eat but a daily supplement can make a lot of sense.
  2. Skip your diet soda: It’s not allowed on the protocol anyway but by all means, don’t ever think of cheating on soda even if it says zero calories. Diet soda can cause havoc to your having a flat belly goal. The artificial sweetener in it can screw up your body’s normal metabolic response to sugar and surprisingly increase your appetite.
  3. Start your day with protein: Eggs, yogurt, fish, meat, legumes, seeds, and nuts could help reeve your metabolism during the diet. Protein can burn twice as many calories than fats and carbs. They do so by requiring your body to use more energy to digest them.
  4. Spice up your meals: Spicy foods can boost your metabolism because of the natural chemicals they contain.  A chili for example can temporarily increase your metabolism by at least 8% over the normal metabolic rate. Aside from reeving your metabolism up, spicy foods can also increase your feelings of satiety.
  5. Sip some black coffee: Coffee contains caffeine that stimulates the nervous system to send direct signals to the fat cells telling them to break down fat. It increases your metabolic rate which means it increases the number of calories you burn when you rest.
  6. Get enough sleep: Sleep plays a vital role in regulating appetite and metabolism. If you are sleep deprived, your metabolism slows down in an effort of conserving the energy. Your body’s internal system will want to stay alert and look for foods and this raises the cortisol level.
  7. Drink water when you wake up: Before you take a sip of coffee early in the morning, why don’t you have a glass of water to give your metabolism a jolt? During sleep, your metabolism slowed down and it didn’t receive any fluids unless you woke up in the middle of the night to swig some water. So, rehydrate first before sipping on some caffeine.

    I’m at my ideal weight but metabolism is screwed up. Eating even bellow my recommended calorie intake would cause me to gain weight. Can I do the HCG diet to help with my metabolism problem?

  • Jan Marie Luna

    Yes, since the HCG helps reset your metabolism, doing the protocol would help balance your hormones so your body can properly carry out metabolism. You could do a short round if you are already at a healthy weight.

    I wanted to do a short round for my first try to see if it would work for me. How long do I need to spend for this protocol for a short round?

  • Jan Marie Luna

    Hi Charlotte! =)
    When doing the HCG protocol, the shortest you can do is 26 days of treatment which consists of 23 daily injections. This short round is for those who need to lose 15 pounds or less. You cannot go shorter than 26 treatment days.
