The Metabolic Wall
How to test your metabolism at home
There is a simple test for what kind of shape your metabolism is in. You can do it at home. Get your thermometer. Just before going to sleep at night, take your temperature. Log down the results. Repeat this for four consecutive nights. Now get an average of those results.
What the results mean
If your average is higher than 98.6, congratulations on having a very good metabolism. If your average is between 97 and 98.6, you have an average metabolism and might benefit from a refeed period. Aything less than 97 means you have a serious problem.
Fixing a metabolism problem
The answer to a low metabolism is to refeed yourself. Add a few more calories and balance out your macronutrients. Do this for a minimum of 2 weeks. Scale back your cardio during this time as well.
