acids are at the core of every cell in the body and are necessary for
cell growth and repair. Intake of amino acids during weight loss
insures you won't lose muscle while losing fat. This is important
because the amount of lean muscle your body has, the higher your resting
metabolic rate (i.e. the higher your metabolism), so when it comes to
muscle, the more the better! Make sure you are adding weight training
exercises to your daily exercise program.
If any essential amino
acids are missing from your diet, your metabolism and all of your body
systems will be affected. For example, amino acids work hand-in-hand
with insulin to keep your metabolism balanced. Any interruption in
either process can alter your metabolism, slowing it down and when that
happens, you'll begin to gain weight.
How Do Amino Acids Aid In Weight Loss?
- Tyrosine and Phenylalanine
work together to create active amines including epinephrine, dopamine
and norepinephrine. Epinephrine acts as a natural appetite suppressant,
phenylalanine regulates the brain's ability to recognize hunger or
fullness and phenylalanine also gives the body a desire to remain at the
appropriate weight once it has been attained.
prevents fat from being stored by causing it to be transported to the
mitochondria in your cells, which convert the fat into energy.
is a precursor to serotonin. Serotonin alerts the body to fullness.
If you're battling carbohydrate cravings while trying to drop those
extra pounds, then amino acid, tryptophan, can be a valuable aid since
it naturally decreases your desire for carbohydrates. Did you know
lack of sleep can cause an increase in appetite (especially for carbs)?
Tryptophan is often cited as the amino acid in turkey that causes you
to fall asleep after Thanksgiving dinner. This sedative effect can be
helpful for weight loss, as sleep helps regulate hormone and insulin
levels and ensures proper glucose metabolism.
stimulates the production and release of catecholamines, which are
hormones that speed up your metabolism and initiate fat burning.
stabilizes your blood sugar so your liver can convert it into glucose.
Taking supplements of magnesium and vitamin B-6 aid threonine's
- Leucine is the key
amino acid in initiating protein synthesis in your body. This action
in and of itself burns a lot of calories. Leucine is also important in
retaining muscle mass (which improves metabolism) and increasing
feelings of satiety (reduces hunger).
