“Oh Hai, I just boosted Ur Metabolism”

Posted by Joel Marion

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about metabolism lately, so I figured I’d put together a few blog posts about how you can increase YOURS.

#1 – Increase your G-flux.

If you’ve never heard of G-flux, here’s a simple formula for increasing it:  Eat more; exercise more.  Sounds pretty simple, but let’s take a deeper look.

Exercise increases metabolism.  Eating increases metabolism.  The trick is learning to balance the two so that you still create a negative calorie balance.

Let’s back up real quick.

Sendentary people (folks who just sit around and don’t exercise) have painfully slow metabolisms.  This is due to many hormonal factors resulting from a lack of exercise along with the fact that these individuals never really “teach” their body to burn additional calories.

Likewise, chronic dieters share the same plight.  When you chronically under-eat, metabolism shuts down as a starvation protection mechanism and the oh-so-slow metabolism blues start a-playin’.

On the contrary, exercise and eating are metabolism boosters.  That being said, it’s not very likely that eating more by itself will ever do wonders for your fat loss goals.

But when you combine eating more with a high caloric burn via exercise you get the best of both worlds.

For example, let’s say your basal metabolic rate allows you to burn 2000 calories a day.  Knowing this, you go on a diet and begin eating 1500 calories a day, putting you 500 calories in the hole.  Now, on the surface a 500 calorie deficit would appear to be a good thing, but unfortunately you’ve done your metaoblism NO favors here.  In fact, under-eating only decreases metabolism with each passing day.

So, “dieting” is not the method of choice for creating a calorie deficit.

Now let’s take a similar scenario.  You burn 2000 calories a day, but instead of “dieting” you start eating 300 calories MORE each day and you also burn 800 extra calories through exercise.  The result?  The SAME 500 calorie deficit (2800 calories burned, 2300 calories consumed) but you do so while increasing your metabolism through eating and exercising more.

That’s the power of G-flux.  Apply the concept and watch your metabolism skyrocket.

#2 – Eat Carrots.

This actually has nothing to do with metabolism, but it allows me to shamelessly post a picture of my daughter’s first “whole food” feeding yesterday – Mmm mmm carrots! :)

On a more serious (albeit less adorable) note, while we’re on the topic of metabolism here’s something you should definitely check out.  Believe it or not, my buddy Kyle Leon just posted a new metabolism trick that can’t even be stopped by “bad genetics”…and he SHOWS you proof.  See for yourself:

Great advice – Thank you! But how can we tell what how many calories our bodies are burning each day so we don’t overfeed?

hey joel, i have a question. if i ate less sugary foods for a cheatmeal like pizza instead of ice cream. would i have an edge for fatloss going back into my diet?

Definitely agree on the adorable pic of your daughter!

I would add that both exercise and TEF (thermal effect of food) are only temporary increases in metabolism. With regard to TEF, not all macronutrients are equal as well, but I’m sure you’ve mentioned that in other posts…..

Excellent article and very well explained. Thank you. Also, I can’t get the link to open for the metabolism trick, is there something wrong with it or is it just my computer?

Your Baby is so cute.

I must show my appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this particular situation. As a result of searching throughout the search engines and getting suggestions which are not productive, I thought my life was gone. Existing without the presence of solutions to the problems you’ve fixed through your entire short post is a serious case, as well as the kind which may have badly damaged my career if I had not noticed the blog. Your personal talents and kindness in playing with everything was precious. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come across such a subject like this. I’m able to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks very much for your impressive and sensible help. I will not think twice to recommend your blog to any person who needs guide on this problem.
