Many people blame their slow weight loss on a slow metabolism, but is there a way to affect metabolism to burn more calories?
In actuality, a slow metabolism is rarely the cause of weight gain. Although your metabolism influences your body’s basic energy needs, how much you eat and drink, and the amount of exercise you do are the things that ultimately determine your weight.
