WHY METABOLISM IS GETTING SLOWER WITH YOUR AGE

I guess you don’t think a lot about some things that you’re doing when you’re young, everything is fast and easy. My generation who has gained thirties, the more and more complains about their weight and a lack of energy. The facts that are explaining does the metabolism truly slows down, why does it and how you can keep your body in shape, will be faced in this text.

After you make a step into the thirties, or earlier in some cases, your lifestyle is starting to change. For example: marriage, kids, job, obligations, success and there is a lack of free time for yourself. Research showed that average metabolism or the calories burned in a day decreases for 1% each year by the time you turn 30. If you keep on having the same amount of food as you did in your twenties, your body wouldn’t be able to burn the quantity of calories, which results in extra pounds. This especially relates to athletes whose careers ended and they keep on having the same food portions, but the metabolism is noticeably slower due to changes in activity.

Slower metabolism affects on hormonal balance in your body, too. The more your body fat is elevated, the harder is for your body to control leptin and cortisol that are close related with your weight. Leptin controls appetite and cortisol controls regulation of carbohydrates and their conversion to mass units.

Some scientist and doctors are representing the theory that only lifestyle and lack of activity cause slower metabolism, they also claim that it’s only about activity, not the ages, that people aren’t as much active as they used to be.

The only habits that keeping up your metabolism like you’re still 20, are: healthy nutrition, exercising and drinking a plenty of water. There is also a recommendation to reduce ingredients such as sugar, gluten, dairy products and cereals. Experts claim that people by the time they are 30 need to drink filtered water instead of bottled water, to eat organic food and healthy meat. Let your breakfast be healthy, your food non-greasy and portions of vegetable and fiber bigger. Eat moderate, eat more of food with no high acidity such as red meat, alcohol and sugar. One glass of wine is enough after dinner.

As regards to exercising, three times a week without great effort is quite enough. Light cardio, a walk, swimming, running, climbing, rowing… basic exercise at home or in the park.

NATURAL TESTOSTERONE BOOSTERS

In today’s world it is a lot argued what is the role of testosterone, how to increase T level in the body, what is the healthy ways to do this. The survey found that people due to lifestyle and diet have a reduced secretion of this hormone, which has a very important function on our body. In the following, we will give some helpful information and answer some questions.

testosterone

Today, the research found that the Japanese age of 100 years had higher levels of testosterone than Americans age of 30 years. With reduced level this hormone leads to chronic fatigue, reduce male libido, lose muscle mass, increase percentage of body fat, decreased bone mass, hair loss, low volume of semen, mood swings. The level of testosterone decreases with age, and over 40% of men, over 45 age, are the group at risk for this problem.

Testosterone-Levels-By-Age

Natural ways to increase T hormone is:

Ejecting dietary sugar. The average American takes 12 teaspoons of sugar a day, and sugar directly reduces the level of T hormone secretion. When you eat foods rich in processed grains and sugar, your blood glucose level becomes elevated. To keep blood sugar levels, the pancreas begins to work overtime to produce insulin, which helps the flow of sugar from the bloodstream into the cells, in order to metabolized for energy. Finally, if your cells are exposed to insulin for a long time, you develop insulin resistance, which causes the occurrence of type II diabetes. Diabetes develops when your body is unable to produce enough testosterone.

Good quality sleep. According to scientific research long enough and timely sleep are the two most important ways to raise the level of T hormone in the blood. Sufficient sleep is 7 hours is recommended, also to be already at 22h going to bed, because sleep quality is the best from 22h to 2h in the morning. Level of the hormone cortisol, which reduces the level of secretion of the hormone T, is placed in the normal frame.

Reduce the level of fat in the body. Weight loss has a predictable and linear relationship with increasing testosterone naturally. When you take into consideration the effect that insulin resistance and poor sleep habits have on testosterone, this makes sense because they are all closely linked to obesity. At the core of this problem is the discharge of processed sugar from the diet, which is associated with insomnia, overweight, diabetes and other negative impacts on the secretion of hormones.

Stress reduction. The problem is when you are chronically stressed, and your body remains stuck in the condition in which the pumping out cortisol (the hormone stress) constantly.

Interval training with a combination of weight training. If you want to naturally increase testosterone and growth hormone, then combine weights with HIIT training (high intensity interval training). Lifting weights 6-12 reps, including large muscle groups will help your body to build more muscle mass. More muscle causes your body to produce more growth hormone. Despite the lifting, interval training with a combination is best for the overall increase growth hormone. It also maintains the level of T hormone. Interval method involves exercise of 90% to 100% of your maximum for short periods, in order to combust stored sugar (glycogen). This helps your body to burn fat in the next 36 hours and replace vital energy stores in your body. In addition to increasing the level of T helps in: lowering heart rate, lower blood pressure, accelerate blood circulation, detoxification by stimulating the lymphatic system.

Increasing the level of T hormone with using protein and healthy fats. Recent studies reveal that high branched chain amino acids (BCAA) significantly increases the level of T hormone and falling hormone cortisol. Recharging can be done in the form of protein shakes or simply increased protein diet (chicken, fish, eggs).

Sunbathing and Vitamin D. Studies show that Vitamin D increases levels of testosterone naturally, in obese men and up to 30%. This is interesting because research shows that vitamin D3 also linked to the prevention and treatment of cancer. Two of the best ways to optimize your vitamin D levels in helping and strengthening the secretion of testosterone are 20 minutes each day sun exposure. This is best done in the morning or afternoon, with exposure to 40% of the parts of the whole body.

 

MUSCLE FOOD

And if I’m not an advocate of large muscle mass and excessive muscle today we moved the best way through the food that needs to be applied to increase muscle mass. Increased muscle mass in both recreational, athletes or beginners have a very positive thing. First of all the body and muscle burns calories faster, which speeds up the metabolism of the whole body (the faster you will melt body fat and weight), the other aesthetic looks very nice, and the third might be the most important helps your body in proper posture and gives it vitality and strength. It is not easy to build big muscles so who say i will overbuild my muscle it is wrong. Some facts and suggestions in the text might sound beyond the usual advice, but will be explained why you should applied. This will be useful to anyone who needs to put on quality weight.

So lets start…

IMG_20151008_233833

The first part means that you need to eat a lot, but the right kind of food, distributed over more meals a day, total you should enter two grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. You will need a lot of carbohydrates to encourage the desire to exercise and ability to recover after a hard workout at the gym. Then you should plan your diet so devise that it contains the very best food for building muscle mass. Now I will introduce to you foods that your nutritional program should include as much as possible.

BEEF. Many mistaken discarded fat from food, thinking that it will increase the level of fat in the body. But with Omega-3 fatty acids in fish, saturated fat in beef actually stimulate growth. Too little saturated fat in the diet does not promote the growth of testosterone and insuluna. Beef is also a source of cholesterol, the main ingredient that helps the body to produce its own testosterone. Beef is also classified as good sources of creatine, B vitamins and zinc. The best options are low fat beef parts

EGGS. There are different ways in which nutritionists treat food on its ability to stimulate growth. Eggs are at the top of almost every list since it is extremely easy absorb- body can very quickly to explain this food into amino acids. Eggs are also rich in healthy fats, saturated fats and lecithin, they help the body to develop muscle mass.Try to avoid the yolk but do not totally excluded from the diet.

SALMON. 100 grams of salmon contains 20 grams of protein, which is equally important, 2.5 g of omega-3 fatty acids, those healthy fats that reduce inflammation of the muscle to stimulate its reconstruction and help in controlling cortisol (as cortisol decreases, the level of testosterone per rule growing, stimulate muscle growth). A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids also helps that most of the glucose you eat is transported to the muscles rather than deposited as fat.

APPLE JUICE. Extreme exercise in the gym break down muscle. However, the beneficial effects are manifested only later, when the body regenerates and becomes larger than before. Apple juice drunk before training the body supplied with carbohydrates and quickly gives him the necessary energy (for glucose), which is also of long duration (due to fructose). This hampers the creation of cortisol thus decreasing the harmful effects on the muscle fibers.

BUTTERMILK. If you are trying to put on weight, do not drink skim milk or one with low fat. These types are for those on a diet. Around half a liter of whole milk contains 16 grams of protein and 16 g fat. The fat in milk is usually composed of short chains than is the case with fats that are found in other foods. Such fats are slightly anabolic, helping to prevent muscle breakdown, and they are rarely deposited as fat in the body. The fat in milk also help the body absorb vitamin D, which has recently been discovered that reduces the risk of cancers.

WHITE BREAD. You probably know that you should avoid refined carbohydrates because they have less fiber and healthy nutrients, and also raise insulin levels. But white bread is one of the perfect choice of food immediately after completion of the training. Then you need carbohydrates that are rapidly digested to reimbursement level of glycogen in the muscles and stimulated insulin levels in order to achieve muscle growth and to reduce the production of cortisol after training. Two pieces of bread retain 25g carbs are digested very quickly after training.

PASTA. Building muscle requires a lot of carbohydrates as fuel. What is more important is that carbohydrates radically alter protein metabolism by increasing the efficiency with which ingested protein gets into the muscle and stimulate growth. Without carbohydrates you consume protein that does not perform quite as efficiently its job when it comes to stimulating growth. One cup of cooked pasta in the form contains about 45 grams of carbohydrate.

GARLIC. Garlic can dramatically alter the hormones in your body. Growth is associated with the consumption of real macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein and fat) at the right time of day. But it is also associated with adequate hormonal environment that stimulates growth. Animal studies have shown that garlic in combination with large amounts of protein increases testosterone levels and prevents the degradation of muscle. At the micro level, it is the very definition of the ideal anabolic situation.

YOGURT. Natural yogurt, obtained either from whole milk was than with low fat, falls into a healthy diet. It is best to opt for yogurt that contains active cultures of “good bacteria”. But on the label, do not search on the word bacteria. Instead, look for Lactobacillius acidophilus, L. casei, L. reuteri and Bifidobacterium bifidum. These probiotic bacteria pass through the stomach to red tract where help the body maintain a healthy balance of bacteria that live there. These good bacteria strengthen the immune system which helps in the process of recovery and reduces the formation of agents responsible for inflammation, while increasing the absorption of nutrients. Another very useful ingredient in yogurt is calcium, which controls muscle contraction and can significantly reduce the deposition of fat.

OLIVE OIL. This oil control inflammation in the body, generally associated with better recovery. Olive oil also supports testosterone and, like any other source of fat, calories are what help the body to remain in an anabolic state. Olive oil is also rich and healthy fats.

 

This text was written on the basis of many years of research and experience, the parts that are scientifically proven and parts taken from many years of experience and top sportsmen and fans of muscles and muscle mass. I think the allegation is substantiated by sufficient evidence and knowledge so that you can start using. And most importantly, everything is natural and without anabolic steroids.

ALCOHOL EFFECT ON BODY AND PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE

I think there is a lot of misconceptions about what is alcohol affect on human body, weight, and obesity. Is it true or is a misconception that alcohol is fattening, we will try to clarify in the following text.

The general formula for the alcohol is R-OH. Out of all the alcohol in the alcoholic beverages is ethyl alcohol or ethanol. Prepared fermentation of fruits and cereals that contain sugar.

Alcohol

Alcohol as alcohol it self can not be stored in fat, that mean calories from alcohol can not be converted into fat. But alcohol has a significant impact on our metabolism and thus indirectly on spending our calories and speed of metabolism. It decreases the secretion of the hormone testosterone and growth hormone significantly affect the rate of metabolism and the growth of muscle tissue. For example, a study conducted by the TNO Institute for Food and Nutrition, had 10 subjects who drank 30-40 grams of alcohol a day (2-3 beers or wine 10-15 grams). After 3 weeks, their testosterone levels decreased by approximately 7%. University of Helsinki conducted a similar study, they were given to respondents 1.5 g ethanol per kg of body weight in 10 healthy men aged 20-26 years, and found that their testosterone levels decreased by 23% on average between 10th and 16th hours after they started drinking. In addition, the level of cortisol (stress hormone) was increased by 36% on average, so the growth hormone significantly reduced started to light.

There are good effects of moderate alcohol consumption. Moderate consumption of beer (3 to 6 dl / day) stimulates the immune system and reduces the fat in the blood. Three to four cups of beer decreased levels of C-reactive protein (linked to inflammation and with various diseases of the heart), which tells us about anti inflammation action and partly explains the association between moderate alcohol consumption and reduced heart problems. Since ancient times, stories about the benefits of 1 to 2 glasses of red wine. Nutrients in wine are also beneficial for the heart because it reduces stress, whereas alcohol dilates blood vessels.

al

The bad effects of excessive alcohol consumption are: Encourages dehydration. Alcoholic drinks are diuretics that encourage us to urinate. Going out and drinking until the late hours making lower levels of important hormones in the blood. These hormones are secreted in a deep sleep, mostly during the night. After one drunk is necessary 24h to testosterone levels return to normal. Alcoholic drinks are oversaturated in sugars. This can result in a disorder of blood sugar levels. After alcohol consumption leads to faster muscle fatigue. After drunkenness in our muscles remains a greater amount of lactic acid than usual and therefore our body needs less time to be tired. Possible are the same, muscle aches and cramps. Hinders absorption of vitamins and minerals. Through urination usually out just useful vitamins and minerals we need to function normally. Increases the risk of injury. In the same way, extended recovery time. Reduces stamina. Organism for the production of energy required sugar in the bloodstream. The sugar is produced by the liver, into the blood stream releasing glucose. Alcohol lowers the body’s ability to produce this sugar (glucose), which is why people have less energy and are less durable. Hinders the production of glycogen. Glycogen is produced in the liver, which also breaks down alcohol, so it is very easy to conclude that alcohol consumption burden on the liver and thus reduces and slows the production of glycogen necessary for intensive muscle work.

HOW TO REMOVE FAT FROM CRITICAL AREA

Most people suffer from “regional” grease – deposits in certain parts of the body. Fat is deposited throughout the body but is most striking in certain areas. With these body parts most difficult to lose fat. These are problematic part.This problem areas are heavily influenced by hormonal status and determined by the type of hormone that is not secreted properly (not balanced).

Fat-Blast
One of the things that have lately quite speaking is the connection between fat on my stomach and hormones called cortisol (stress hormone). To put it simply – the higher the level of cortisol, you will probably have more fat on the stomach. This means that if you have a pretty fat on the stomach, it is reasonable to conclude that the cortisol levels increased with you. Excellent article on the mechanism of fat under the influence of cortisol.
High levels of cortisol is harmful for other reasons, but we will focus on the fact that because of cortisol are not so “little” just around the stomach.
Instead of just suffering from all these, the obvious solution is to try to reduce cortisol levels which will lead to a reduction of fat on my stomach. Reducing cortisol is not quite so simple. Perhaps you ever come across advertisements that offer you anti-cortisol pills. Even if they are effective (and are not), hormones such as cortisol can not be fooled by some little pills.
it’s pretty good principle is that you should use certain hormones that help regulate other. In essence, anti-hormones can you fight hormones. Science explores the hormone and how to interact with each other. As far as cortisol, one should not go beyond the growth hormone.

Growth hormone (HR) or Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is produced in the pituitary gland. Growth hormone is one of the most important factors in balancing, controlling cortisol. Simply put, the more growth hormone reduces the amount of cortisol.
In order to run the body to secrete HR.
You may have heard that certain exercises are very effective in stimulating the secretion of growth hormone. This is indirectly true.
Growth hormone is normally produced and released in response to something, and in the case of training, exercises, HR is released as a reaction to something called lactic acid.
Lactic acid is a byproduct of some chemical and metabolic processes that occur during exercise .

So, if you practice a certain way, you can create more lactic acid, which in turn stimulate increased secretion of growth hormone. The rush of growth hormone will affect the level of cortisol is not high. It would be helpful to get rid of stubborn fat on my stomach.
How do we do that? Lactic acid is produced during the most intensive exercise, but there is an unusual exercise that can produce more lactic acid than is generally possible with other types of exercise. This so-called “exercise lactic acid” consists in very slow raising of weight during training and their rapid descent.
The reason for this structure is that it is primarily lactic acid produced during the “concentric” or positive phase, phase in raising exercise, and not so much when the eccentric or negative phase, the descent phase of weight. In order to exploit this and create a more lactic acid, should strengthen the positive phase of our exercises.
Numerically it means that for each repetition weight lifting proceed for about 4-6 seconds than the normal speed of exercise, and then descend weight extremely quickly, but safely. For example, if you’re doing squats, descend quickly, and lifting very slowly. If you do exercise for chest on a bench, raise the dumbbells to your chest slowly and return them quickly.
Practicing with these extended concentric movements Ms create a tremendous amount of lactic acid, which will which will in turn stimulate your body to produce more growth hormone.The growth hormone will help you to sort out cortisol, and to help fight the fat on your stomach.
If all this still not enough training that causes the formation of lactic acid is an excellent method to lose fat, but you will lose the fat on all parts.
