View Full Version : How is my metabolism?

05-28-2004, 01:23 PM
Just curious if you guys think I have a slow, fast, or normal metabolism. I'm cutting btw

Last weeks average calories = 2481
Weight loss = None
I weigh 170.5lbs at 5 feet 8 inches.

Is that fast, slow, or about normal. I'm gonna lower calories a bit this coming week. Note that I started a new routine so I could have gained some muscle, unsure.

thats about normal...
if you've been at that calorie level for a while your metabolism might have slowed down to match it I think 8 weeks is the general rule of thumb.
you could boost your metabolism by popping some thermogenics to get you out of the slump (this is the ideal time to use thermogenics for a short period to spikie it, vs using them non stop which allows your metabolism to settle on them)

You could also add some refeeds to ur diet.
What kinda bodyfat do you think ur at now?

BTW, I'm 5'10 205 and my intake on my cut is about 2850 on workout days and 2600 on days off (to give you a ballpark)
