Information And Treatment
Metabolism is a chemical process that allows the body to get energy. Usually, the body metabolizes food, but if youâ€™re good about your diet and exercise, the body will metabolize fat reserves instead.
Everyoneâ€™s metabolism works at a different rate. Thatâ€™s why super-skinny women always claim to have a fast metabolism. Some are telling the truth! The faster the metabolism, the more energy the body requires. People with fast metabolisms are usually very thin, because the body torches every calorie it takes in.
Youâ€™ve probably heard people lament that their metabolism slowed down after a certain age. And this does happen. Metabolism slows down with age, though proper exercise and diet can help you maintain a reasonably fast metabolism.
Men typically have higher metabolism than women because they have more lean muscle mass. Sorry, ladies!
