Metabolism: What is it?
Metabolism is the multi-step chemical process by which the body converts food into usable energy.
Factors like genetics, age, sex, body composition, height, weight, diet, activity and hormone balance determine your basal metabolism, which is the energy expenditure needed to sustain life.
3 Signs Your Metabolism is Slowing:
- Bloating and puffiness
- Unexplained and stubborn weight gain, especially in the midsection
- Fatigue, low energy, brain fog and anxiety
