You’ve probably heard about the human metabolism being referred to as “fast” or “slow” and that the reason why we gain weight or have a particular body shape and size is due to our metabolism becoming slow, sluggish and even broken!
We’ve been taught to believe that we are born with a metabolism that functions on a certain speed and that doing a few key things will make it faster, which will help us lose weight.
But the truth is, your metabolism can’t be broken. Metabolizing your food basically refers to how your body is using it as a source of energy. Of course, it can be influenced by many factors such as your age and hormone function but what if changing our relationship with food could also help create a healthy metabolism and get it humming along in the best way possible?
