I have an Omega-3 Fatty Acid defficiency. Which basically means my body doesn't estract essential components from foods for a healthy life. My bones are weak, I don't heal normally, and building muscle tissue is very difficult. I drink plenty of milk and usually eat a little more than my share. I excersise and I've even tried taking supplements, but they're just not enough. I've always been a light weight, and I'm growing weary of easy bruising, sore wrists, general pain in the bones of my limbs. The only expaination to why I have this defficiency is my metabolic rate is higher than it should be. There are all kinds of herbs and natural compounds exploited all over the media of how you can increase your metabolism. Teas and diets on TV and the internet. But I can't find anything on how to lower it. All I hear is "You'll lose it one day when you're older and you'll get fat and blah blah blah." I don't care it is an important issue now. I could really use some ideas and information on what can slow down my metabolism. I can do without the idea of just being a lazy **** too. Please if you know I need your participation.

You could have b12 deficiencies among other things. Without adenosylb12 there is intense muscle pain and lack of muscle growth. Without methylb12 there can be lack of all kinds of tissue growth and very abnormal metabolism and an inability for cells to grow replacements. There can be multisystem tissue breakdown. The two natural b12s tend to normalize metabolism and cell growth. The "usual" supplements would not supply these special forms of b12. http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=169920&posted=1#post169920 Come on over to the b12 deficiency forum if you want to know about a good nutritional program to promote the growth of healthy tissue. I don't know if this is your problem but it could be.

  • Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you consume, solid & liquid, into energy. Here are the 3 ways metabolism works for you, so that you understand how the body burns calories.* Basal metabolism - From 60 to 75 percent of calories you eat daily are spent keeping you alive and providing basic energy for life support. If you were to lie in bed all day, you would still need these calories to support basic body functions. * Physical activity - From 20 to 25 percent of your calories go to movement and physical activity such as sports, exercise, cleaning, walking, etc... * Thermal effect of food processing (Thermogenisis) - About 10 percent of calories are spent processing the food you eat. For example, if you eat 2000 calories a day, you should be burning 200 calories a day simply eating and digesting your food.

  • Increase in metabolic rate is good to keep you fit and healthy. Skipping your meals specially morning brake fast this will decrease your metabolism and thus less calories are burned. To keep one healthy it is better advisable to eat better that is eat more times per day and exercise regularly.
