How Well Do Your Patients Understand Their Metabolism?

How Well Do Your Patients Understand Their Metabolism?

Education is power, especially for patients who are trying to manage their weight.  Understanding metabolism could be a game changer for many patients.  And knowing that they have some control over their metabolism can be VERY motivational.

We know that a Healthy Metabolism is closely linked to daily activity and muscle, and muscle is affected by protein and exercise.  

A recent article in the New York Times Magazine shares that “men don’t have innately higher metabolism than women; rather they tend to burn more calories per day for their size because they typically have a higher proportion of muscle, which uses more energy than fat does” (Tingley, 2021).

Protein + exercise helps patients maintain or improve their muscle mass, which means they will burn more calories.That is why UNJURY® recommends High Quality Protein + Exercise for Lifelong Success. 

Here are 3 educational tips that you can share with your patients to help them take better control of their metabolism and long-term outcomes.
  1. Choose Protein First 20-30% of the calories that you take in from protein, are used to process the protein. YES! Eating food burns calories! That means that you have to spend calories to break down the protein before your body can use it.
  2. Increase Daily Movement - Non-Exercise activity. More movement can have a big impact on our metabolism. Non-exercise movement accounts for 20% of our total energy expenditure. When you move a lot throughout the day, it can impact your metabolism positively. Pacing, fidgeting, and keeping the house extra clean all burn lots of calories.
  3. Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) can be improved. BMR is the number of calories that we burn at rest to “keep the engine running.” It accounts for the majority of our energy spending every day. Our body burns calories even when we are sleeping in order to keep our organs functioning. So, even when we are resting, we are still burning calories. The majority of those resting calories are burned by your muscle. The more muscle you have, the more calories that you burn at rest.

Important Take Away: You can improve your lean muscle mass with high-quality protein and exercise. 

Remember! High Quality Protein, like UNJURY® Protein + Exercise = Lifelong Success.
