Wednesday Wisdom: Metabolism Myths

Happy Hump Day!

Let’s talk about metabolism. I am sure you have heard different things on the topic and have a few questions.

What role do genes play?

How is it that some people stay thin no matter how much they eat, while others find it harder to lose weight?

Does age matter? 

I am all about separating fact from fiction, so let’s dig in shall we?

  • Genetics do play a big role. This explains why some people seem to be able to eat whatever they want.
  • As age goes up, metabolism and metabolic rate do indeed go down. This explains why things that worked in your 20s may not work now.
  • As height goes down, metabolism and metabolic ratego down. So those who are “vertically challenged” do have to put in more work to maintain a healthy weight. So sorry!
  • As weight goes down, metabolism and metabolic rate also go down. I know, it doesn’t seem fair but it is true! The less you weigh, the less your body burns. And, it’s a BIG reason why those who don’t have the proper tools and coaching regain. Thankfully, our 5E Method will ensure that you don’t become a casualty of this.

What is today’s takeaway? Your race, your pace. No comparisons! Everyone is different so focus on doing what you know is right for you and trust the process.

If you are unsure about what is right for you or want to learn more about the 5E Method that ensures you lose weight week after week, reply to this message. We’ll hop on the phone and talk it out.

Have a great rest of the week and stay focused,
