The term metabolism refers to the myriad of biochemical reactions that occur in your body every second. Some of these reactions lead to the production of new substances (i.e., anabolism), whereas others break down complex molecules (i.e., catabolism). When metabolism slows down, you will undoubtedly gain weight as the cells become less efficient at breaking down glucose and fatty acids. Generally speaking, being sedentary is the primary factor that slows down metabolism. As a result, you will end up with more fat and less protein. In this article, we will cover everything you need to know about metabolism, including the definition of basal metabolic rate (BMR) and the ways to boost it.
