How Your Metabolism Affects Your Active Lifestyle


Your metabolism plays huge role in how your body processes exercise. From speeding up to slowing down, it helps gauge how your body responds to the exercises you do, the food you eat, even down to how much rest you get. It’s an important part of your health and what’s more important is that everyone is different.

There certainly isn’t a “one size fits all” scenario when it comes to learning about your own metabolism and it only benefits you more when you know what works best for you.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

1). How your metabolism is in charge of burning actual calories throughout the course of your life during different activities and how this slows over time and what that means for you as you age.

3). Some simple suggestions that you can do everyday to burn more calories as you go through your normal routine.

4). How sleep affects your metabolism and getting the appropriate amount of rest can keep your body in good shape not only during the day but at night as well.


5). Explaining the myth that people with faster metabolism’s are healthier over all and that someone with a slow metabolism needs to work harder to attain the same level of health.
