Do you lose weight when your metabolism speeds up?

If your metabolism is high (or fast), you'll burn more calories at rest and during activity. A high metabolism means you'll need to eat more calories to maintain your weight. That's one of the reasons why some people can eat more than others without gaining weight. Having a higher metabolism can help you lose weight and keep it off, if that's your goal, while also giving you more energy.

Shedding those extra pounds can slow down your metabolism. As we lose weight, our metabolism slows down because there is less body weight to bear. So how can you lose weight without slowing down your metabolism? You do this with a balance between dietary changes and exercise. Eating more often can help you lose weight.

When you eat large meals with many hours in between, your metabolism slows down between meals. Eating a small meal or snack every 3 to 4 hours keeps your metabolism going, so you burn more calories over the course of the day. A number of studies have also shown that people who regularly snack eat less at mealtime.
