The word metabolism is thrown around a lot these days. Maybe you’ve even used it to explain why you can’t lose weight.
You might be aware that if yours is too slow you might gain weight. But what exactly does this all mean?
Technically “metabolism” is the word to describe all of the biochemical reactions in your body. It’s how you take in nutrients and oxygen and use them to fuel everything you do.
Your body has an incredible ability to grow, heal, and generally stay alive, and without this amazing biochemistry you would not be possible.
(Remember Science class? There really was a benefit to all of that information!)
