Have You Given Up Hope To Get In Shape?

By Katherine Crawford

Maybe adaptation has put your progress in a stalemate. But keep in mind that there are many other changes happening in your body that will make this process easier over time.

And if you aren’t conscious about these physical changes you may lose hope and throw in the towel.

Thus, here are 6 physiological changes that make losing weight easier as time goes by:

1. Levels of testosterone increase: This happens in two phases. First, your testosterone will increase immediately after a workout and the mornings after a workout. Second, there is a more long term increase in baseline testosterone that can take a couple years.

2. Levels of insulin go down: As you build lean muscle tissue and burn fat, the amount of insulin your body needs to get nutrients into your cells will go down. And less insulin will translate into more fat burning since small increases in this hormone can shut down fatty acid oxidation.

3. Your metabolism increases: In other words, the amount of calories you burn around the clock increases. This happens because as you build more lean tissue the amount of calories required to support that lean tissue goes up.

4. What used to be hard becomes habit: The longer you stick with it, the more of what you are doing becomes automatic. In other words, you spend less physical and mental energy getting things done. Whether it be exercise or diet.

5. The pain leaves your body: Ok, the pain doesn’t leave your body, but you do feel less and less pain over time. You see, as you keep on applying loads to your muscles they start to become desensitized to the painful burn from intense exercise.

6. General hormonal response will increase: As you get in better shape, the amount of hormones your body produces will go up. This serves as good news because you know that things will get easier since hormones are the most powerful substances in your body.

If you are just starting out, keep in mind that things will get easier over time. So don’t give up or throw in the towel, stick with it!
