Factors that Influence How Fast You Lose Weight
Man, if you could see Google’s search database—how to lose weight fast is WAAAAY up there. Everyone wants to lose weight fast, but there are things other than eating and exercising that influence how fast you lose weight.
While the ‘healthy’ number is a half-pound to two pounds per week, factors in your life can influence whether you’re in that range or above or below it.
If you go above that pound or two a week, you risk losing muscle—and that’s no Bueno. Muscle not only helps you MOVE, it also burns more calories than fat—so having more muscle means you have a higher BMR and overall metabolism.
So, that said—what factors influence how fast you lose weight? Well, your weight, for one.
Your Weight Influences How Fast you Lose Weight
Your weight literally sets your metabolism at the most fundamental level. The more you weigh, the more calories your body takes to make you function. So—larger people actually have ‘faster’ metabolisms than thinner people. Larger people also have to eat more calories per day to keep their bodies going.
What does this have to do with losing weight? You can cut more calories per day and lose more weight. While you don’t want to drop too low, you have some extra to spare, so you can lose more weight.
Your Genetics Influences How Fast you Lose Weight
Everyone has a genetic blueprint. Some people derive genes from the pear shaped Aunt Gertrude and others get the Slim Jim genes. It’s not fair-it’s science. You can talk to your doctor about identifying specific genes that may be inhibiting your weight loss and tackle it from there. Knowing is the key.
While you’re at your doctor….check your hormones.
Your Hormones Influence How Fast you Lose Weight
We cover hormones all the time—from the thyroid to cortisol—hormones can make your body do all sorts of strange things—including hold onto weight. Hormones trigger other events in your body such as what to do with food, how to store calories and fat, how much to store, where to store it, how easily to let go of it, how fast your metabolism should be…and more.
This is also where genetics can play a role. If you have thyroid problems in your family, or a high stress life—you might not be in control of your weight. Good news is that you can get these tested in office, medicines can be prescribed along with tips on how to prevent, maintain or reverse issues.
Your Age Influences How Fast you Lose Weight
It sucks but it’s true. Your age DOES matter when it comes to losing weight. You’ll hear your friends or co-workers talk about how now that they’re ‘older’ they have troubles losing weight. It’s true. Hormones play a role, less muscle mass, and a slower metabolism all contribute. Also, as people age, they tend to move less.
After 30, you’ll start losing muscle and your hormones will change. Be prepared if you’re not quite there, and fight back if you are. Workout regularly, choose food wisely and lift weights to keep that muscle.
As you can imagine, most of these things are beyond your control. From age to genetics, it’s tough when you have to work harder than the rest.
You can change that.
