WHAT IS METABOLIC COACHING?
You might have noticed that some people try to lose weight, or to improve their performance but no matter what they do, they can’t seem to see any result. Diet and exercise don’t work, but why? The answer lies in their metabolism.
What is the metabolism? Metabolism is a term that is used to describe all chemical reactions involved in maintaining the living state of the cells and the organism. Metabolism is closely linked to nutrition and the availability of nutrients. As human beings we generate life within our bodies by creating energy from the food we eat and the oxygen we breathe. The more effectively our bodies can burn this food and oxygen, the healthier we will be, and the easier it will be for us to maintain optimal weight.
We have three sources of fuel for our body: protein, carbohydrates and fat. Protein is constant whereas carbohydrates and fat are variable. If a person’s metabolism is burning the fat then that person will lose weight, however, if a disproportionate amount of carbohydrates are burnt then consequently that person will find it extremely hard to shed off the weight and indeed to maintain optimal body weight.
Do you want to know a better, more personalized way to get to your goal without overtraining and being more susceptible to injury?
Each person is different, therefore, so is your metabolism. ‘Burning fat is your body’s most efficient source of fuel’. People have the misconception that the harder or longer they workout – the more fat they will burn. This test can determine the heart rate zone you burn the most fat. This is usually lower than most people imagine.
Two beneficial things this test reveals:
– Your aerobic base – a ’snapshot’ to determine how your body utilizes fat and oxygen during exercise – the most efficient point of fat utilization (body is burning calories from fat).
– Your anaerobic threshold (AT) – most inefficient point of fat utilization (body no longer burning calories from fat).
At Uptifit, we will help identify the optimal heart rate zones where your workouts are most effective.
