What is the Metabolism and how Feeding it can speed it up. Easy and quick this One Pan Tropical Chicken can help Stimulate the Metabolism
Metabolism is the process of converting food into fuel and using that fuel for energy. Your metabolic rate is the rate at which this happens. When it’s slow, your body isn’t efficient at converting food into fuel. The faster your metabolism, the better you can burn fat for fuel and convert nutrients into usable forms for building, repairing healing, and energy production.
Although the metabolic process is complex, it also operates according to a few very simple natural laws, as real and unshakable as gravity.
Law #1: The brain needs glucose to function. Glucose is brain fuel, and it only comes from food.
Law #2: The body must store energy from food before it can be used. You can’t instantaneously use the energy from an apple right after you eat it. You must convert it and store it first. This is a metabolic process, so your metabolism has to be working in order to store the energy from food.
Law#3: The body must use stored energy to do anything, from growing to healing to moving. If it can’t access the stored energy, it cannot function. If it doesn’t have stored energy from food, it cannot function. If the metabolism isn’t working well to access stored energy, then it will stay stored in your fat cells.
My entire practice and philosophy are based on these natural laws, which basically say you need to eat food to keep your metabolism at peak performance. You need to eat food, so you have enough glucose to fuel the brain. You need to eat food so you can take in the micronutrients the metabolism needs to store energy. And you need to eat food to fuel the metabolism so it can access that stored energy, which you need to live your life.
In other words, to do anything, including losing weight, you need to eat food. Stimulate your metabolism with this One-Pan Tropical Chicken recipe.
