Fasting and Metabolism
The fear is
that while fasting, the metabolism will slow down and afterward there
will be more weight gained than before the fast. Initially, any calorie
reduction will cause a lowering in the BMR or base metabolic rate.
Cleansing will bring health that will increase metabolic performance and
energy output. In other words, you will eat less and feel more
fasting, the body is more efficient. Digestion is better due to a
cleaner colon. The colon walls have been cleansed of impacted feces,
allowing improved absorption of nutrients. The good news is that greater
efficiency equals enhanced energy. Healthy people burn more calories.
They also eat less because they are more active and feel better about
themselves. They don't need food as a security blanket.
greatest impact you can have on increasing your resting metabolism is
exercise. After a workout, you can be sitting on the couch reading while
burning calories, as the muscles are grabbing glucose from the blood to
replace glycogen supplies. The key to weight loss is fewer calories and
more exercise. A diet high in raw food provides fewer, low-density
calories, and higher-fiber, more-filling foods.
Oh, by the way, a slower metabolism diminishes aging. A tortoise can live to 400 hundred years of age.
