Understand Your Metabolism
Many people simply don't understand the concept of metabolism and metabolic change. This, is hardly their fault. There is an information overload on the subject and also a lot of confusing and conflicting messages are floating around.
Also many people mistake their own weight gain and loss episodes as a matter of metabolic change. It's always not true.
There are scientific ways to increase the rate of metabolic change, and thus enable the body to burn more calories. Eating certain foods more frequently is one way to do this. Yet another way to visibly lose weight is to sit in a steam room for a few hours.
Whereas the eating the right foods is a real, proven weight loss method through increased metabolic change, the the steam room method is just temporary because the lost weight is merely water, and will return as swiftly as it "melted away".
The point to remember here is that some people mistake their own weight loss attempts as being related to metabolic change; and, as you can see with the steam room example, that isn't always the case.
Another Major Misconception : Low Fat Foods
Another reason for the misconception is the because of food and supplement companies on the market who don't want you to know fact from fiction. They want you to believe that constantly buying "low fat" foods is going to somehow speed up your metabolism.
Yes, some low fat foods can play a role in an overall eating program that is designed to speed up metabolism, merely eating foods that come from packaging that screams "LOW FAT!" won't do anything. In fact, but many people actually gain weight when they eat too many "low fat" products. Many of these products are laden with calories from carbohydrates or proteins still must be burned off or they turn into body fat.
As you can see, and probably feel from years of trying to unravel this whole metabolic mystery, this is a confusing, stressful, and indeed, potentially depressing situation.
Each year, tens of millions of people attempt to retake control over their health and the shape of their body; and each year, tens of millions of people feel that they've "failed" because, try as they might, they just can't speed up their metabolism.
The failure is with the medical and nutritional sector as a whole, which has simply not provided people with the information that they need to know in order to speed up their metabolism.
And given the size of the nutritional field and the fact that so much of it is influenced by money-making enterprises there's really no sense in playing a "wait and see" game for when clear, consistent, and helpful information starts to flow out to people like us.
