industry is a multibillion dollar industry. We are constantly
being bombarded with new diets, new fitness equipment etc
every day. Who do you believe? Most of the information we

Your metabolism (the energy you require to exist on a daily
basis) is like a fire burning inside of you. Those with
a high metabolism have a large fire burning inside of their
body. When a person with a high metabolism eats food, the
food is burned up. In other words the calories are consumed
up by the fire. It’s like putting logs onto a hot
raging fire, the logs burn down to just ash due to the hot
flames. When you go on a diet, your metabolism or fire burns
lower. Let’s say you starve yourself during the day
and eat a bigger meal at dinner time. It’s like putting

In order to have a bonfire burning in your body you need
to increase the amount you exercise, and keep feeding the
fire throughout the day with smaller logs or kindling. Eating
three meals with snacks mid morning and mid afternoon will
help keep your fire burning.
