You’ve probably heard someone say they can’t lose weight because they have a naturally slow metabolism. You may have even said this yourself. Popular diet programs and exercise DVDs promise to “crank up your metabolism” for maximum fat burning, weight loss potential. It seems that this thing called metabolism is somehow directly related to losing weight, and healthy weight management. All of those points beg the question, “What exactly is metabolism, and is it possible to manipulate it to sustain weight loss?” By eating right and keeping active, you keep your metabolism operating properly. This means unneeded fat and waste products are eliminated instead of being stored as fat, or as poisons and toxins in your liver, leading to multiple chronic conditions. Later in this book you will discover proven ways to boost your metabolism through exercise and nutrition. It is possible … and I’ll show you how.
