Is it genetic or can self-influenced factors contribute to healthy weight loss? To help you lose weight in a healthy and natural way, in this blog article we have the best tips and herbal remedies summarized for you, which can support you on your way to the desired figure.

With natural methods, such as Zimply Natural's individual spagyric blends, your metabolism can be boosted naturally and sustainably.

Why you should pay attention to your metabolism

We are all familiar with the statements "Diets don't work for me" or "I just don't lose weight" and have either tried it ourselves or know someone who has tried to lose weight. Metabolism is a complicated process in which organisms convert food into energy in order to fuel our Body and supply our brain with it. While a fast metabolism favors fat burning, a slow metabolism rather causes the opposite, i.e. weight gain and difficulties in losing weight. You may be reading this article out of pure interest or frustration because your body is changing. Even if it seems to you that your metabolism is only going crazy and changing now, we can reassure you - it has been doing this your whole life.

When and how your metabolism can change

From puberty to old age: the different phases of life

There are many factors that have an influence on the metabolism and the entry into the Puberty is one of them. The body grows a lot and needs more energy to keep up with the changes and promote physical development. For this reason, many children feel a greater urge to eat and also reach for unhealthy foods more often, which leads to weight gain. So here it is important to pay attention to a healthy and balanced diet to keep the metabolism in balance. Over time, everything settles down again and remains relatively stable in adulthood. Only with the onset of advanced age, the energy consumption as well as the muscle mass decreases.

Hormonal fluctuations: When hormones go crazy

While estrogen increases during puberty, it decreases during the Menopause this hormone level and suddenly you find yourself in the Menopause. Although it may feel like it, this is not a disease, but a natural transition into the next age stage. The drop in estrogen levels can cause a slower metabolism and thus weight gain. Other hormones can also have a major impact on your weight, such as insulin or the thyroid hormone thyroxine. Insulin is responsible for regulating blood glucose levels, and when a Insulin resistance results from hormonal changes, this can lead to metabolic disorders and lower energy production. Thyroid Diseases can also influence metabolism and lead to weight changes.

The lifestyle is crucial

When it comes to influences on metabolism, lifestyle is probably one of the most important factors. Unlike your age and hormonal fluctuations, you have control over this and can influence how you support your metabolism. Areas of life such as diet, exercise, sleep and stress, for example, can be influenced by you, but we will come to that. You should also know that Smoking and excessive as well as regular consumption of alcohol, may be associated with weight gain and other health problems.

This is how a slow metabolism affects your body

You've probably heard it before: you eat a little too much and suddenly you gain two kilos. This is indeed a possible sign of a slow metabolism. Causes can be too much stress, poor nutrition or insufficient physical activity. However, if you have a slow metabolism, it is often difficult to lose weight even if you eat healthy and exercise regularly. This is because your body doesn't use the energy from food quickly enough and stores it as fat instead. Other signs of a slow metabolism can appear as fatigue, cravings for unhealthy foods, and general malaise.

What metabolic types are there and which type are you?

Ectomorph type

Thanks to your fast metabolism, the energy you consume can be utilized immediately. This can also make it difficult for you to gain weight and muscle mass. Eat a balanced and healthy diet and pay attention to proteins and carbohydrates as well as plenty of fruits and vegetables.

Mesomorphic type

Your metabolism is well balanced and you build muscle quickly, but you should still watch your diet to avoid gaining weight.

Endomorphic type

Your slow metabolism can make it difficult to lose weight and lead to increased fat deposits. Fast diets will not help you in the long run, rather try to focus on permanent changes, such as a protein-rich diet.

In order to achieve the best possible effect and to be able to optimally counteract the causes, we recommend use over a longer period of six to eight weeks. As a kind of cure, you spray 3×3 sprays daily.

Foods that get your metabolism going

As you can probably tell from the previous blog post, balanced eating and exercise are important components of a healthy metabolism, no matter what metabolic type you are. Foods high in fiber and naturally occurring healthy fats can stimulate your digestion and make it easier for your body to process and use the energy contained in food. Avocados, chia seeds, nuts, apples and lean protein such as turkey or salmon are a great way to boost your metabolism. Increased consumption of foods high in vitamin C, such as oranges, grapefruits and peppers, also helps here. One more aspect that we would like to point out to you here: A balanced metabolism not only helps you to maintain your ideal weight, but also plays an enormously important role for your energy level in all everyday and physical activities.

Sleep: More important than you think

Believe it or not, your Sleep plays a very important role for a balanced metabolism. Too little sleep can have serious consequences in the long run: the hormone release that occurs during sleep can be disturbed, which then leads to impaired hormone regulation. Furthermore Sleep deprivation lead to increased fat storage and muscle protein breakdown, as well as an increased risk of obesity.

Just a few minutes of exercise a day makes a difference

Not only sleep is important, but also physical fitness; according to the World Health Organization, you should move 21 minutes a day, even small activities like climbing stairs or mowing the lawn are beneficial. If you get enough exercise, on the one hand your body's insulin sensitivity can improve, which leads to better regulation of blood sugar levels, and on the other hand your cholesterol level may drop, which in turn improves fat metabolism.

Stress: Simply shift down a gear

Stress causes your body to release the stress hormone cortisol, which can have an impact on your metabolism if released continuously. Increased appetite and binge eating can be effects of a lot of stress. Also, when cortisol rises, more glucose is released because your body is trying to provide enough energy, which in the long run can lead to insulin resistance and an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes can lead to. Other long-term consequences may include flatulence and digestive disorders, brought about by changes in intestinal function and nutrient absorption.

Better a balanced diet than a strict diet

A balanced healthy diet is not only more enjoyable than a strict diet, it is also more successful and sustainable in the long run. You increase and stabilize your energy level, reduce the risk of heart disease and chronic illnesses, and make it easier for your body to maintain weight. Fast diets usually do not promote fat loss, but result in a loss of water and muscle mass, as well as low energy and nutrient deficiencies.

FAQ: Questions and answers about metabolism

What is the yoyo effect?

You've just finished a tough diet, but suddenly you're gaining weight again? This phenomenon is called the yoyo effect. After dieting, it can often happen that the weight you lost comes back quickly. Especially if you repeatedly diet, you may experience alternating weight gain and loss. Of course, this is not only frustrating, but also not good for your body. Instead, try switching to a consistently balanced diet and you'll see that it becomes so much easier to maintain your dream figure.

Can genetics influence metabolism?

Yes, it can. Genetics, for example, can already determine a person's basal metabolic rate. That is, even at rest, some people consume more calories than others because their basal metabolic rate is genetically higher. In addition, some people can digest certain nutrients better than others, while others may be able to process sugar more effectively.

Is eating late at night bad for your metabolism?

Surely everyone has heard the statement that it is bad to eat something late at night. But is it true? In fact, it has not yet been clearly proven whether late night snacks are harmful, but it is known that digestion is slower at night than during the day. This means some people might experience poorer sleep quality because the food literally "sits in the stomach." The most important thing is consistency and habit in meals, because if your body is used to the time of day, it won't mind it!
