Metabolism and Weight Loss

Scientists define Metabolism as the biochemical modification of chemical compounds in living organisms, generally at the cellular level.For us non-sceientists, the word metabolism is derived from the Greek word Metabolismos meaning “change”.

In simpler terms, metabolism is the process that occurs in our bodies to transform various substances, such as the food we eat, into the energy we need to live.

From a weight loss perspective, metabolism is important, because if we eat food and it is not transformed into energy, it is stored as fat.

Think of it like a car: you put gas in your car; whatever gas you don’t burn, stays in your gas tank.
