If you have read any of my past articles you will realize that I am not a big fan of diets. Most of the time people only diet until they reach their desired weight and it ends there.

On their website Mayo Clinic defines metabolism as “the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy.” The body is always burning calories but different factors determine how quickly they are being burned off. Some of the most relevant factors include: age, sex, activity level, nutrition, and body size. If you’re trying to boost your metabolism it is important that you develop a consistent and balanced approach.
As a wrestler most of my career has revolved around weight management. Some of my practices are great and others are not the healthiest.
