Increasing metabolism is closely related to weight loss; The United States National Library of Medicine (MedlinePlus) disproves some of the myths associated with this, whether it is exercising, consuming a drink or even sleeping.
It is worth noting that metabolism, according to the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE), is “the state of chemical reactions carried out by living cells to synthesize or degrade substances”. And the medical encyclopedia defines it as the process by which the body uses power, which it achieves after the consumption of certain foods to fulfill its functions.
Meanwhile, popular opinion claims about the relationship between weight loss and metabolism, and MedlinePlus explains them:
Does exercise speed up metabolism? The answer is that yes, even after physical exercises, the body continues to burn calories, but it must be borne in mind that, once the physical activity is over, the metabolism is restored, that is, it does not accelerate.

This idea is very popular and although these teas stimulate the metabolism to a minimum, MedlinePlus notes that their consumption does not make a big difference in weight loss. It is therefore recommended to eat foods that have a filling effect and do not allow the intake of extra food.Do foods like chili help in weight loss? Science and health facts show that these foods can speed up metabolism; however, they do not have a significant incidence in weight loss, so it is appropriate to choose foods that have a satiety effect.

But there are other sleeping errors that, according to an article published by Mejor con Salud and reviewed by the profession, Maricela Jiménez López helps to gain weight.
Sleep mistakes contribute to weight gain
The quoted passage states that the food is for the purpose of eating slow digestion and a feeling of gravity, before sleep, thanks to weight gain. It also ensures that eating while watching television has a distracting effect, because what is eaten is not clearly observed, controlling the calories lost.

If this is not possible, you can choose light foods that facilitate the passage of the intestines; Thus, foods with more saturated fats damage the body weight.There are those who eat carbohydrates for lunch, and these are the most recommended (according to better health), because their main function is to provide the body with energy at a time when it is not needed, it should also be noted. Many of them added sugar, which is not good for the body, because it can be turned into fat, so even a dessert intake before sleep is mistaken.Sleeping after one morning is also considered unhealthy, because then perhaps the body will require more food then, and they will not have a proper digestive process.
