The body’s metabolism is a unique process for each individual person. No two people metabolize food at the same rate. We all use our calories at different rates, with different results. Our metabolism, like our fingerprints, is unique to each of us.

Some people have high rates of metabolism. In other words, when they consume food, their bodies burn it up almost as fast as they consume it. On the other hand, some people have slower metabolisms, and consequently they tend to gain weight at a faster rate.

For years, people have sought ways to raise the metabolic rate. If you can raise someone’s metabolic rate, you are then better able to control the burn of calories, especially for overweight or obese people. This would make the goal of better or improved health a much easier reality for those people.

This is where the effort to stay physically fit and active provides tremendous payoff. Over the course of your life, if you stay active, exercise, and maintain optimal health for your muscles, you will see a tremendous difference in the rate that your body metabolizes food. As people age, their metabolism quite naturally slows down. The greatest way to prevent this from happening is through exercise and staying fit.

The best way to date to control our metabolic process is through proper nutrition, daily exercise, and plenty of rest. The metabolic process can be indirectly controlled by the methods we just discussed. Direct control is not available, to date.
