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.

Is that generally okay for long-term health?

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