How often do we hear someone in their 30’s, 40’s, and beyond tell someone in their 20’s:
“What I would give to have my old metabolism back and eat whatever I want.”
The belief that a declining metabolism is an inevitable part of adulthood causes people to feel helpless and that they can’t do anything about it.
But emerging evidence shows that a decrease in metabolism isn’t an inevitable part of adulthood, at least in early adulthood from ages 20-60ish.
