The word metabolism is derived from the Greek language. And it means “change” or “transformation”. For our purposes of Healthy Body function, metabolism is the amount of energy your Healthy Body burns/uses to maintain vital bodily functions. Your goal, is to make sure you are not having your Healthy Body waste its current energy on needless tasks such as trying to breakdown harmful indigestible foods, dealing with negative people, allowing unproductive worry, or exercising ineffectively and for too long.
Ramping it up
At every moment, be it that you are sleeping, or at the mall shopping or in the gym exercising, your Healthy Body is constantly burning calories/energy. It needs fuel just as a car needs fuel to power itself or a machine. Your metabolism is the regulator and manager of your Healthy Body’s fuel.
Food and your Healthy Body chemistry
Eating right for your specific Healthy Body chemistry is an important way to ensure that your food will be metabolized more effectively and that you won’t feel drained after your meal from toxic buildup and fermentation.
