Your metabolism

When you hear the word metabolism, you probably associate it with how fast you can lose weight. Although your ability to lose weight is a sign of your metabolic function, the ease at which your body can burn fat is based on many different systems throughout your body.

Metabolism actually means the energy created and used by your individual cells. With that said, your ability to burn fat isn’t based on how fast your metabolism is, but actually by the efficiency of your cells’ communication with one another. Your body is very intelligent and has checks and balances with every function to achieve balance. When your body is not balanced you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Dry skin
  • Cravings
  • Hair loss
  • Headache
  • Bruise easily
  • Mood swings
  • Frequent colds/flu
  • Digestive problems
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Food sensitivities/allergies
