What About Metabolism?

Have you ever wondered about that friend who seems to eat anything without gaining weight? Well, it’s all about understanding your body’s metabolism. Here are three key tips to help you master it:

  1. Calculate your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which indicates how many calories your body burns at rest. While professional assessments are available, you can also estimate it online for a close approximation.
  2. Use a scale that not only measures your weight but also reveals your body fat percentage. For women, a normal percentage is below 28, and for men, it’s below 20. If you exceed these ranges, it’s a sign that your body might be in storage mode rather than burning mode.
  3. Focus on the quality of calories over quantity. Understanding macronutrients (carbs, fats, proteins) and micronutrients (like iron, vitamin D, and vitamin C) is essential. Tailor your diet to match your physical activity level, height, genetics, and gender.
