How is weight loss affected by someone's basal metabolic rate?

How is weight loss affected by someone's basal metabolic rate?

Weight loss: The higher your basal metabolic rate (BMR), the easier it is to lose weight. Unless you have a low thyroid, there is no medication or supplement that can raise your BMR. You can only raise it through exercise. Aerobic exercise raises the BMR during and for hours afterwards. Strength exercises raise it over the long run by increasing muscle mass (muscle burns more than fat) ...Read more

How can you avoid gaining weight you lost on Vyvanse/amphetamines once you stop?Aside from suppressing appetite they DO increase Basal Metabolic Rate

How can you avoid gaining weight you lost on Vyvanse/amphetamines once you stop?Aside from suppressing appetite they DO increase Basal Metabolic Rate

Rebound weight gain: It is not unusual to experience wight gain after discontinuation of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) or other stimulants due to rebound increase in appetite. If not kept in check, it can lead to weight gain, as would be expected. It does not increase BMR, as is commonly believed. The best way to maintain weight is to monitor calorie intake and activity level. This can be achieved with mindful eating and regular exercise. ...Read more

How is resting metabolic rate measured?

Measure or calculate: It can be measured by a special calorimeter machine that may be found in some physicians offices. It can also be estimated using the mifflin st. Jeor equation, which differs for men and women: women rmr (calories/day) = (10 x weight (kg) + (6.25 x height (cm) - (5 x age (yrs) - 161. To get weight in kg, multiply pounds by .45. To get height in cm, multiply inches by 2.54. ...Read more

Can I increase my metabolic rate through exercise even after a total thyroidectomy?

Can I increase my metabolic rate through exercise even after a total thyroidectomy?

Yes: Hi. Yes, you can. Most thyroidectomies are done for thyroid cancer. You will need to take thyroid hormone replacement for life, but doing so, your thyroid hormone-influenced metabolic rate will be normal. Increasing your metabolic rate through exercise is a different mechanism than the basal set point that thyroid hormone helps regulate. Take your thyroid hormone, eat healthily, and exercise. ...Read more

How can amitriptyline cause your metabolic rate to slow?

How can  amitriptyline cause your metabolic rate to slow?

Not quite right: I don't know that amptriptylene actually slows your metabolic rate, but it can increase appetite leading to weight gain. Also it has effects that slow your GI (gastrointestinal) system down, making constipation possible unless you're careful to drink fluids & eat good leafy greens, other vegetables, and fruits. This is different from the metabolic rate in your body, though. ...Read more
