A doctor actually said that your metabolism is 'at a stand still.'

I'm no physician, but from what I know, then you'd be dead. Our 'metabolism' refers to the system that runs our bodies, and it's always working.

My endo believes that I have a 'genetically slow metabolism,' but that simply means that I require less food than I'd like to eat.

According to my doctors, the only way to 'speed' the metabolism is caffeine (which is why it's in all those energy supplements) and exercise. But those things only work short term.

The way your metabolism functions is determined by your physiology and is less in our control than most people imagine.
