How Do Metabolic Weight Loss Programs Work?

New England Fat Loss’s signature weight loss program is based around identifying and correcting its clients’ metabolisms. However, before you can begin to repair your metabolism, you should understand how metabolic weight loss programs work. First, let’s define metabolism.

What Is Metabolism?

Metabolism is a complex physical and chemical process that occurs in every living organism. It’s one of the essential functions of the body and it plays a role in nearly every system in the body. In other words, metabolism is the system that determines how much energy the body needs at any particular time. By doing this, your body determines what happens to the food that it processes – either it goes immediately to provide energy or it stores the energy as fat. Fat is generally the medium the body uses to store energy. When the body needs energy and there’s none immediately available, your metabolism will tell your body to convert that fat to energy.

Metabolism can be divided into 2 categories:

  • Catabolism – the process that breaks down food molecules to provide energy.
  • Anabolism – the process of synthesizing simpler molecules to build more complex compounds, like proteins used to repair tissue and grow muscle.

Metabolism is the combined process of catabolism and anabolism. It uses different enzymes to break down complex substances (such as food) into simpler ones (the catabolism process). It then uses those new substances to build different complex compounds and hormones that the body needs (the anabolism process). This process releases energy, eliminates waste, repair bones, and grows tissue.

How Does Metabolism Affect Weight Loss?

1. Certified wellness coaches can test your metabolism and calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR).
Your BMR is the amount of calories that are used to run the background systems of breathing, sleeping, pumping blood, digesting food, and repairing tissues.

2. A weight loss plan is provided based on your BMR.

When the body doesn’t have enough energy to function, it’ll convert stored fat into energy. Personalized metabolic weight loss plans promote your body’s ability to burn stored fat and turn it into energy.

3. Professional coaches keep you motivated to meet your weight loss goal.

You’ll have access to regular appointments, advice, and resources to make sure your weight loss journey is successful.

4. You’ll be able to set a realistic weight loss goal.
The journey to your ideal weight will involve a permanent lifestyle change. Maintaining this lifestyle will ensure that you lose weight and keep it off.
