Lesson 3.2 – What is fast and slow metabolism?

In this lesson we will explore how exercise and body composition relate to metabolic rate. The concepts we will cover include the idea that ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ metabolism is largely a consequence of lean muscle mass. We will also explore other factors that may contribute to metabolic rate, such as efficiency of food absorption.
