Your metabolism is the amount of energy in calories that your body burns in order to maintain
its weight. Whether you’re sleeping, running, sitting, standing, riding in a car or eating a bowl
of chocolate fudge ice cream, your body is constantly burning calories in order to keep you
going. Think of it as a fire within you, burning your fat and food away. No, sorry but you won’t
burn enough calories chewing your chocolate fudge ice cream to cancel out the calories you
just took in by eating that bowl of ice cream.
