What Is Metabolism?

Metabolism describes all the chemical processes that are continually happening in the body. This keeps your organs and cells alive. There are generally two parts to metabolism, these are:

  • Catabolism - this is the process of breaking down molecules for energy;
  • Anabolism - this is process of synthesising all the compounds that the cells need.

These metabolic processes are vital for keeping your body functioning normally.

Metabolic processes require energy. The minimal amount of energy needed for these chemical reactions is called the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). This basic rate can account for 80% of your daily energy requirements.

There are many factors that can affect your basal metabolic rate. Age, gender, genes and body all have a part to play in determining your metabolic rate. Certain medical conditions can also affect your metabolic rate.

Low Metabolic Rate

If you have low energy, chances are you have a low metabolic rate, also known as a low BMR. It is a common belief that this can affect your ability to lose weight, but there is little evidence to support this. In fact, people that are overweight tend to have faster metabolic rates.

However, a slow metabolism can cause other issues, such as fatigue.
