Is my metabolism speeding up? :)

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So i started working out 6/7 days a week and now, at night (not too long after dinner) I am getting strong hunger pains (which i never used to get)..Has this got anything too do with my metabolism speeding up?I am hoping so..

I dont usually get hunger pains and i dont typically eat much which is why my metabolism is slow.. I am trying to eat more, work out and generally be 'healthier'...Am hoping this is a sign on a speed up.. Any experts know? Thankyou

if you werent eating much before your body could have gone into starvation mode

Dieting and Metabolism

the more muscle you build,the faster your metabolic rate becomes

this article will give you an interesting insight into ways in manipulating your metabolism

Muscle weighs more than fat! You can be same 'size' and weigh more because of muscle. That is good! If you are hungry, eat. It will serve you well later on by making your bones stronger, not to mention the joy of being truly hungry for a good meal. Calories are energy which you need to work out. I am glad to hear that you are working out, Zee.

my fat levels are very low at the moment and i have to eat more just too sustain my weight...i eat 6-8 smalls meal a day

the more small meals you eat the more calories your body burns to digest the food

always eat just before you are hungry,that you dont make bad food choices,and you have a better chance of controlling your portion size

i would stay away from the cardio for the first month.If you are not eating enough calories,the cardio will cause your body to burn muscle as you dont have that excess fat... you are pretty lean to start off with

increase your protein intake and supplement with protein shakes as this will aid in building muscle quickly and help with recovery

Peter, i agree i should probably go easy on the cardio..i thought i was but maybe i should take your advice and stop-my trainer said she'd rather i did very little to none. I use it to control my anxiety I am trying to eat protein as much as possible! I think its working..Makes me feel more alive

dont replace shakes for meals,otherwise its going to screw up your digestive system

You've answered your own question. Now someone lock this thread.

you are a bit like me...a control freak

i can be obssesive...i now only train 3 days a week,instead of 5-6...and my results are a lot better

you actually grow when you are resting...cardio will hinder that

Yeah, I won't drink something crappy Lots of small meals are good for me, too, and lean protein.
Peter you have good advice. You seem to be able to take the individual into full account and tailor it personally to them.

Stuff to think about....

(1) Overtraining (due to high motivation factor)
(2) Compound exercises (as opposed to sculpting exercises)
(3) Frequency of meal throughout the day; evening meal/evening snack
(4) Days trained per week; Time per training session; Morning, afternoon, or evening training
(5) Hours of rest; number of sleep hours per night; nap after workout.

.... just some stuff I think might be important.


EDIT: Hydration throughout the day.

Short anwer, if you gain muscle and eat properly your metabolism will speed up. Which is why you shoudl be constantly fueling your body, more frequent smaller meals. Portion control your protein and carbs, but you can never overat vegetables

a beginner should always stick to compound exercises as this will give you better results

Compound Exercises for Maximal Muscle Mass

beginners will always overtrain...they are so motivated

take some melatonin to induce REM and have a good deep sleep
