Metabolic rate

Postby Indrajala » Thu Apr 21, 2011 4:48 pm

Namdrol, in Tibetan Medicine how is metabolic rate viewed? Is it better to have a low or high metabolic rate?

My resting metabolic rate is around 2011 calories per day, but even then I still think I require far less than that. I can put on weight very quickly. I don't really need much food to get by.

If you put on weight quickly, this means, from our point of view, your metabolism is low.

The very meaning of the Tibetan term Dzogchen, "Great Perfection," refers to the true primordial state of every individual and not to any transcendent reality.

Is that generally okay for long-term health?

Better to encourage your metabolism to be higher. Low metabolism leads to chronic cold diseases.
