"Sometimes you'll feel some soreness the following day, but that doesn't mean you had a better workout. And a lack of soreness doesn't mean you had a bad workout.

They had a kind of "fidgeting" that increased theirand fueled all biochemical processes in the cells. Diet: These are the biggest metabolism myths
You also have the couch-karting gene more? We do too - but most people are already gaining weight because they are eating and moving.Each of us has probably tried a crash diet that has gone completely backwards - in the end more and more land Kilos on the ribs than before, because the metabolism goes completely down if we eat too little.
Rather, it is important that the right things end up on the plate: High-processed foods keep the metabolism on the back burner - fresh vegetables, high-quality protein and healthy fats, on the other hand, keep the metabolism engine running high through the supply of important nutrients.Myth 2: Cardio training helps with weight loss
