I just got done reading this article on metabolism and found it really interesting and helpful.
Metabolism is what burns calories. This article clarified a lot of what I'm doing and why its working for me
1. I eat often...therefore my body is never "starving" ie thinking it needs to save the food/calories for later. This is why Breakfast is the most important meal of the day...get that meabolism back up for the day.
2. I'm not just dieting but I'm working out too. Building muscle so that when I do hit my goal weight, the muscle I've gained will help keep me at a good healthy weight.
Check it out! Helps to know how my body works and what it needs to function properly!
