An increase in dietary fat coupled with very low carbs can actually help you lose significant weight and decrease many risk factors for chronic disease. If you’re considering going keto, understand exactly what this diet plan is all about.
Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. During this complex biochemical process, calories in food and beverages are combined with oxygen to release the energy your body needs to function.
Even when you’re at rest, your body needs energy for all its “hidden” functions, such as breathing, circulating blood, adjusting hormone levels, and growing and repairing cells.
Sometimes we need to boost our metabolic rate in order to burn more calories which of course assists in the weight loss mechanism.
