How do you determine your metabolic type?

Can your metabolic type change?

3) Metabolism can vary a lot between people, and researchers don’t understand why. It’s true that two people with the same size and body composition can have different metabolic rates. One can consume a huge meal and gain no weight, while the other has to carefully count calories to not gain weight.

What is considered a fast metabolism?

If your metabolism is “high” (or fast), you will burn more calories at rest and during activity. A high metabolism means you’ll need to take in more calories to maintain your weight. That’s one reason why some people can eat more than others without gaining weight.

What are the benefits of a fast metabolism?

Your metabolism is the chemical engine that keeps you alive. The speed at which it runs varies by individual. Those with slow metabolism tend to have more leftover calories, which get stored as fat. On the other hand, those with fast metabolism burn more calories and are less likely to accumulate a lot of fat.
