To Speed Up Metabolism – Myths And Facts
You want to accelerate metabolism?
And you have been hearing lots of “this” and “that” concerning the subject.
You don’t understand which one’s fact, which one’s myth.
All straighten that out in a sec.
Let’s begin with the myths.
Myth 1: “I’m putting on so much weight and can’t seem to get it away! It is my metabolism!”
Do not always put the blame on metabolism here; it may not be the difficulty – it could be matters like you have an underactive thyroid glands; you are on drugs and medication which let you put on weight; you are in shortage of essential fatty acids or you have imbalanced blood sugar…….
Myth 2: Foods like hot pepper, green tea, ginger……can speed up metabolism stacks!
Research says that spicy foods and hot pepper can increase metabolism by about 20% for about half an hour, but no one understands if the effect lasts longer than that.
Yes, hot pepper causes your body to heat up, consequently you crank up your metabolism but studies have shown that maximum effects are felt only when hot pepper is taken jointly with high fat foods (which you know, is high in calories)…..
Now for green tea, you’ve heard so much of its own metabolic “power” that you may be greatly convinced it is the FOOD to help you here….
You see, granted that green tea contains a material called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant that is believed to have fat-burning effect and cause your metabolic rate to shoot up, no one knows for sure whether this effect would be enough to cause weight loss.
