“Metabolism” is one of those buzzwords that everybody knows but might not fully understand. Here, DNews not only fleshes out (pun intended) metabolism, but they also break down whether or not you can individually change your own. Here’s the skinny: you can’t significantly change your metabolism, but you can learn tricks that help you burn fat for longer periods of time (if that’s what you’re interested in). For example, eating many small meals throughout the day will help keep your body working to process food. Even though you’re technically putting food into your body more often, your body burns calories to process that food, which keeps your metabolism consistently higher than normal. Learn tricks and tips like that one, plus the science of your metabolism, in the full video below.
