Metabolism is a myth
Authored by: alisonken1 on Sunday, July 01 2012 @ 06:22 PM EDT
True about the nervous system disorders being a high
consideration in weight loss/gain as well.

I've found that my eating habits are in direct proportion to my
exercise/work regimen. Also, I'm reasonably aware of my
"background fidgeting" actions as well and can only consider that
part extremely minor considering the rest of my activity. So, in
my case, the nervous system seems to be in reasonable balance
even considering I've been on the other side of half-century in
age.

The other argument about my wife is also she is, like your wife,
taking drugs that also gives her food urge a burst considering
her other aspects - especially with her being a youth minister
and keeping up with the youth in their activities at church does
help her burn the calories, but she still has an issue trying to
get rid of the extra pounds.

Metabolism is a myth
Authored by: PJ on Sunday, July 01 2012 @ 10:54 PM EDT
It's not that simple. I don't fidget, but I have
a fast metabolism and I can eat as much as I want
but I never gain weight, give or take 5 pounds and
that seems to be directly related to whether or not
I eat sugar. I also don't exercize in any planned
manner.

I have read studies that show that some people
have some internal mechanism that tells their brain
when they've eaten "enough" and I surely have that,
so that may be part of it.

It can't be all of it though, because I eat more
than many of my friends and family members, and
I still don't gain weight and yet they do. Yes,
they "hate" me.

So, I'm no doctor, but I am fairly sure it's not
a myth about metabolism. Besides, my cat is thin,
and I was told by the vet he's got a fast metabolism,
that it's normal for him.
