Why Can Metabolism Go Down?
Hello, I usually wake up 1 kg down, but the last 3 days, only 200 grams down … Is it true that my metabolism decreased? And what are the possible causes? I exercise regularly … Thank you … 🙏😊
Hello Iva, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Metabolism is a chemical process that takes place in the body of living things to form energy and break down the energy needed by the body, and this process also continues as long as the body is at rest called the basal metabolism rate (BMR).
Especially for BMR, most of it is regulated by a person's genetic factors so that everyone has their metabolic rate.
However, there are indeed several conditions that can affect the body's metabolic rate to be slower, such as thyroid hormone deficiency disease or Cushing's syndrome.
Weight loss every time you wake up does not measure whether one's metabolism decreases or not due to many other things that can affect such as irregular bowel movements, increased muscle mass, increasing age and others. In addition, based on the results of research, the relationship between metabolic rate and weight loss is not known with certainty.
If you really want to maintain ideal body weight, besides keeping on doing sports and maintaining your daily calorie intake, you can also consult with a sports and nutrition specialist to better help you adjust your type of food and other types of sports / activities more precisely based on your condition.
I hope this helps.
