This Video Explains What Can (and Can't) Affect Your Metabolism

Your metabolism can be a blessing or a curse, depending on what it does to your body. Most of us treat our metabolism like a magic factor that can't be changed. However, this video explains what you can do that can affect your metabolism. Spoiler: it's still mostly diet and exercise.

There are plenty of factors that can affect how your body processes food. Your age, body size, and body composition can all affect your metabolism in uncontrollable ways. The factors that are controllable, however, are your diet and activity levels. Having a more active lifestyle can result in a faster metabolism. Naturally, since your body needs to keep up.

Of course, none of this is a magic bullet that will suddenly change your metabolism overnight. If you're struggling with a slow metabolism, doing a push-up once a day won't fix everything. However, understanding that your metabolism is affected by your lifestyle can help you realise how the little things you do (or don't do) everyday have an impact on your overall health.

Can You Change Your Metabolism? [DNews]


    wrong. everyone has the same metabolism give or take a minuscule amount. there is no food or drink that can increase ones metabolism.

    Why doesn't the video mention anything about metabolism altering drugs like Cytomel?

      Because hyperthyroidism is not a guaranteed weight loss strategy (due to increased appetite some people can actually increase their weight) and not particularly good for the body in the long term.

    don't know guys, but she is bloody hot!

    Eh, this video was barely worth putting up let alone watching. In particular, the whole "graze though the day to keep your metabolism up" is a myth that does not work.

    DNews clearly hasn't got the message about low-fat foods yet.
