Metabolic Rate Affects Calorie Burning

Our metabolism determines how rapidly we burn calories. Some people have a relatively fast metabolic rate, so they burn energy faster than people with a slower metabolism. Although our metabolic rate is something we inherit, we can raise it somewhat by taking regular cardio-aerobic exercise and by building up our muscle tissue. Both these fitness activities help us to burn extra calories. We can also maintain an efficient metabolism by eating nutrient-dense food, by ensuring our energy-intake does not fall below about 1200 calories a day, and by eating something every 3-4 hours.
