Question: I have a rather good metabolism rate(not very high but good)...which means i pretty much eat whatever i like and i don't seem to put on much weight and stay pretty average. I would like to know if my metabolism rate will actually decrease if i strart to work out and watch what i eat? Lets say i work out like 2-3 times a week and cut down on carbohydrate foods but allow myself to some ice-cream etc, when i go back to my old lifestyle and eating habits of not working out and eating whatever i want, will my metabolism rate decrease and i start to put on weight easily or easier than before?

Working out will increase your metabolism. That is because even at rest, muscle uses up more energy than fat. If you decrease your eating though, that will decrease your metabolism. Your body will think you are starving it and will slow it down and try to save all the food you give it. It is best to work out and eat a lot but better. Your body needs the good food to build muscle and keep your body burning fats and sugars. If you starve your body you will send yourself into a cycle that will end up in you gaining weight even if you eat the same amount of food.

You should be getting 1500 to 2000 calories a day. Raw vegetables actually quickens the metabolism because it makes your body work harder to digest them. Also they don't loose the nutrients unlike they do when you cook them. If you really want to loose weight Just cut out all sodas, juices, and wheat(breads, rice and pasta).You can eat everything else that is healthy for you. Also try to avoid fatty meats and junk foods. Only eat stuff like chicken, lean beef, fish, beans, vegetables, fruits, nuts seeds, herbs, dairy(as long as it doesn't have sugar. Most yogurts have added sugar in them). You can drink low fat or skim milk and water. After you have lost a good bit of weight you can add whole wheat and grains. No bleached or processed stuff. You can actually not loose weight if you do too much cardio. You should do at least 30 min of cardio a day and do 30 min to an hour of strength and core training. Since your a female don't go over 10-15 pounds on the weights. If your start to get too muscular reduce the weight time or the weights itself.

It is really important that you eat first thing in the morning to get you metabolism going and that you eat enough calories to prevent your body from shutting down its burning mode. You need to vary your work outs because they say after about 20mins of cardio you are just wasting your time and risking injury, you should do strength training as well.

basically your metabolism will decrease as you age. There's no doubt about that... if you start working out and eating proper... when you go back to ur habits of no workout n no diet will surely decrease your metabolism and you'll put up weight... if you just keep tab on what you eat. your metabolism will thank you and you'll be lean forever your life...

personally i'd rather have something like rice (carbs) than eat ice cream. your metabolism will remain balanced as long as you're giving your body the right amount of energy and nutrients it needs to able to cope with increased physical activity, example Exercise. one of the reasons why people gain weight as easily as they lose it is because they go on unhealthy yo-yo diets in conjunction with irregular exercise.

Tisha Originally Answered: Can just drinking water start or keep my metabolism going?
Water is the number one deficiency of Americans today. Many times people feel hungry, but it is the body's reaction to being dehydrated. Fatigue is one of the first symptoms of being dehydrated. If you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated before you get that feeling. Your metabolism is due to the health of your thyroid and where you get most of your calories. If you get most of your calories from carbohydrates, you will have a slower metabolism. However, if you get most of your calories from fat, you will have a faster metabolic rate. The stored fat in your body secretes a hormone called leptin that determines how you utilize insulin and glucagon. If you are eating a low fat diet as many do, you are not only damaging your body, but you are slowing your metabolism down and will find it more difficult to lose weight due to the "plateauing" that happens as a result of this issue. Water, along with electrolytes, will contribute greatly to your feeling less fatigue and in that sense, give a boost to your metabolism. Drinking water first thing in the morning is a very good idea because it stimulates your bowel activity. Only 4% of the water you drink actually gets to the bowels. 60% is eliminated in the kidney, 24% lungs, 12% in perspiration, leaving the 4% for bowels. The average person needs water at the following rate: Take your total body weight and divide by 2. That number is the amount of water in ounces that you need to drink each and everyday. Along with that, you should consume 1/4 teaspoon of "air dried sea salt" in conjunction with each quart of water you drink. This puts the electrolytes in your body that will give you proper hydration. The typical white table salt you buy in stores like the Morton Salt, for instance, is terrible for you and has loads of chemicals added. Avoid that junk. If you drink ANY diuretic drinks like, sodas, coffee, tea, alcohol, commercially prepared fruit drinks, energy drinks, etc., these all dehydrate you and you will need to add more water to the total to compensate for the water loss due to these diuretic drinks. Take the total ounces of the diuretic drinks and multiply by 1.5 and add that total to the original total to come up with the proper amount of water you need to drink each day. good luck to you
