So many people wish they could eat as much as they want, whenever they want, without gaining any weight. They’re jealous of people who eat a lot without any apparent penalty. Well, be careful what you wish for. Here are three reasons to stop wishing for a high metabolism:
1. Think of your digestive system as a factory. The harder you make it work, the quicker the parts wear out. If you constantly stress your digestive system, you’re bound to face some health issues in the long run.
2. Our food supply contains pesitcides, additives, preservatives, hormones, antibiotics, etc… Our bodies do a great job filtering through the “bad” stuff but the more you eat, the more “bad” stuff your body has to filter through. I wonder how many cancers are the result of environmental problems with our food supply.
3. It’s expensive. Having a high metabolism is like owning a vehicle that gets lousy gas mileage. The money you constantly spend re-fueling could be spent on living instead.
I think people with a slow metabolism are more evolved. The trick is learning how to fuel the impressive slower metabolism machine. Small amounts of high quality food is all it takes. If your metabolism is slow, don’t get caught up in the glutony of your inefficient friends. Instead, take the money and run. You’re the lucky one.
