Metabolism Management | Metabolic Rate Testing & Diets

The key to metabolism management lies in understanding that a variety of factors impact metabolism. People sometimes act as if it’s simple: Change your eating habits, boost your metabolism and see instant results. A lot of fad diets center around these principles.

Factors for Individual Metabolic Rates

Yes, what you eat matters. Yes, eating schedules can impact and change your metabolism. But it’s shortsighted not to take a comprehensive approach and look at all of the factors that work together to determine your metabolic rate. Some of them include:

  • Your age
  • Your genetic makeup
  • Your health history
  • Your eating habits
  • Your gender
  • Your height
  • Your weight
  • Your environment
  • Your activity level
  • Your body composition

All of these things interact and feed off of each other. For instance, your activity level helps determine your body composition. Your eating habits may center around that activity level. Your environment defines where that activity takes place, and your age and weight may determine how much activity you can handle at one time. All of these factors then contribute to your resting metabolic rate.

The first step to health, then, is to do metabolic rate testing to find out where you stand. Once you know, you can consider workout plans, lifestyle changes and metabolism diets to help increase that rate.

A Unique Process

Metabolism management is a process, not something you do overnight. You have to take things in the correct order. Identifying where you are now and where you want to be helps you determine the right path to reach that goal. It’s not all about buying the latest supplement or eating fewer carbs. You have to consider your unique situation, your personal metabolic rate, what factors play the biggest role in your life, and how you can use what you learned from the metabolic rate resting to set realistic goals.

At the same time, as anyone who studies metabolism in sports will attest, it’s all about lifestyle changes. These are long-term alterations to the way you live and the way you approach your health. It’s not a quick fix. Instead, it’s a comprehensive plan to address better overall health for years to come. That’s the best way to change your life and your metabolism. You can only find success when you’re committed to that end goal and you make changes that will stick. 

You can do it. It just takes the right mindset from the very beginning, and it takes an understanding that you’ll need to work hard to uphold these changes. With the right lifestyle plan for the future, it can guide you to the overall health that you seek.
