Today we’re focusing on the “calories out” side of energy balance with a discussion of metabolism, as well as whether and how we can manipulate this “calories out” side of the equation.

We will not discuss diet or nutrition, which is the “calories in” side of the equation. Stay tuned for the next episode. In the meantime, understanding metabolism and especially how to accurately calculate your own energy expenditure sets the foundation for a sustainable approach to diet later on.

In today’s episode, we cover:

  • What is metabolism in the context of your total daily energy expenditure?
  • How to estimate your expenditure, which will be useful later for weight management
  • Whether it’s possible change your baseline metabolism, both short- and long-term
  • The truth about cardio and its effect on metabolism and fat loss
  • A more efficient, sustainable way to burn fat
