We have all known someone with the ability to eat large amounts of calories, not even workout, and still look lean and defined year round. By chance, these people have a revved up metabolism. What often happens to these people is they are lean when they are young, then at some point their metabolism slows down and they put on weight. In fact, this was more often than not the case a couple generations ago.

All Young Adults Were Lean in My Dad’s Generation
My dad was born in 1940 and grew up in the 40′s and 50′s. He stayed lean while eating a boat-load of food in in his teens and 20′s. I used to think current childhood obesity rates are because of the activity levels of young people back then compared to now, but have since changed my mind. My dad’s sister (my aunt) ate until she was stuffed 3 times per day, was inactive, and stayed lean into her late 20′s as well.

You Really Can’t Blame Carbs Either
Back in the 50′s when my dad was in his teens, dinners typically had a large amount of carbs. Meat was always served with a large portion of carbs. I think my grandma served potatoes with almost every meal back then. They ate large volumes of carbs and stayed lean.
1980′s = Beginning of Widespread “Leptin Resistance”
You have probably know about insulin resistance…and my guess is that you have read about increasing leptin levels while dieting using cheat meals. This is something different altogether. Those with leptin resistance typically have plenty of leptin in their body, but it doesn’t work properly to regulate body fat. What sucks is that cheat meals won’t do anything to help with leptin resistance.
Leptin Resistance Makes Calorie Reduction Difficult
A simple way to look at leptin is that it is your hunger hormone. When you eat a large amount of food, or have a extra body fat, your body releases leptin as a signal to eat less. This is one way the body regulates body fat. If you are resistant to this hormone, your hunger continues despite adequate calories or excess body fat....More at Slow Metabolism?

m there, especially if you are already exercising? This is a common problem for people who go into a diet and exercise program when they are leptin resistant, insulin resistant, and have a chronically slow metabolism.
Life Isn’t as Colorful With a Slow Metabolism
Here’s are some of the potential issues.
  • Lower testosterone levels / lower sex drive.
  • Slowed digestion causing problems like gas and bloating.
  • More likely to store body fat when eating in excess.
  • Lower body temperature.
  • Lower energy levels.
  • Moodiness and or depression.
Prepping the Body to be Able to Lose Fat Easily
My advice to anyone who gets stuck losing those final 10-15 pounds of fat before summer is to spend the next two months repairing your metabolism. With a raging metabolism it is possible to create a strong calorie deficit while eating many more calories than you have in the past. Wouldn’t it be cool to drop body fat eating 2,500 calories per day instead of 1,500?

Measuring Your Metabolism With a $10 Tool

The way to test your metabolism is to measure your body temperature first thing upon waking in the morning. It supposedly is most accurate with an armpit thermometer.
  • Warm the thermometer in your hand for 30-60 seconds.
  • Stick the thermometer in your armpit for 30 seconds, then turn on.
  • Take a couple readings in each armpit.
  • The highest reading will be your basal temperature for the morning.
The ideal range is between 97.8 and 98.2 degrees when measuring temperature first thing upon waking....More at Slow Metabolism? Try Eating To Boost It: Part 2 - Best Movies Ever Entertainment News
