    A slow metabolism also means lower energy production, more efficient but slower burning.
    Optimal thyroid + adequate cortisol = Good metabolism, healthy appetite, high energy

    • @user-wp5no6cn2b on December 6, 2023 at 7:46 am

      I guess that might be a way to put it. Smaller engine.

  2. @ec726 on December 5, 2023 at 2:58 am

    I need to loose 20 pounds only and its almost impossible. I’ve been trying for 3 years

    • @avfc1985 on December 5, 2023 at 3:08 am

      Calorie deficit. A deficit of 3500 calories is 1 pound of fat. So a deficit of 500 calories per day, either via food or exercise will mean you lose a pound per week. 20 weeks of focus and you’re good! All the best! 👍

    • @dontfit6380 on December 5, 2023 at 4:31 am

      Yes you could try calorie deficit. Pretty good chance it will do nothing for you. You’re watching Dr. Berg now watch his videos on Keto. I took off 60lbs in less than a year and I tried for 10 years with calorie deficit.

    • @tysondoherty on December 5, 2023 at 5:07 am

      I had the same problem for many years. In the end the only thing that worked for me was finding a way to live a low stress life and practicing extended fasting once a week for 3 days of water only. Hope this helps.

    • @dayanahmaahzhnahyasharahla7606 on December 5, 2023 at 1:17 pm

      Same here and calorie deficit does absolutely nothing for me

    • @gambit633 on December 5, 2023 at 5:37 pm

      Getting into full Ketosis the first time was hard, used urine-strips to test. Now it is so easy. First get the body used to burning fat, without worrying about calories! Then switch to low calorie (or my case – no calories – I actually ‘water only’ fast for 2 weeks a few times a year)

  3. @frankyfrank8523 on December 5, 2023 at 3:16 am

    Damn, I never thought about this way. I always thought slow metabolism is bad. Cause can’t lose weight. Maybe I have think like this. I have efficient system. 90mpg system 😅

    • @helenevion5948 on December 9, 2023 at 8:26 am

      Yes. Some of Dr Berg’s videos /articles on weight loss will help.

  4. @Joerideabike on December 5, 2023 at 3:45 am

    Oh thank you for this. I thought I was weird.
    I can’t believe how little I eat. The less I eat the more energy I have, and never sick. Slow metabolism is suppose to mean cold feet in bed and bundled up clothing in winter. I’m the guy in the tee shirt! I thought I was weird, but now I know I’m “efficient .“ I’m 77.

    • @jJust_NO_ on December 10, 2023 at 12:24 pm

      i get concerned too because i could just eat one meal a day and smaller serving yet i dont lose weight.
      i dont have sugar cravings and when i drink sugary ones, my throat burns. its too sweet for my liking.
      i feel like i could fast for 2 days without getting hungry but i havent tried. my consciousness used to hate skinny figure so growing up, i ate a lot but wasnt getting any fatter.
      these days, i eat less but dont get thinner. how odd the mind/body works

  5. @ronin3635 on December 5, 2023 at 5:59 am

    I think I have both a slow and fast metabolism. Cause I can go a long time without eating, but I also can’t gain weight.

    • @healthyketoexperiment7964 on December 9, 2023 at 5:42 am

      Ok. Do you want to gain weight? Have you tried Dr Berg’s videos on weight resistance exercises?

  6. @LavinaJelle on December 5, 2023 at 6:01 am

    I adore your face! You are such a handsome man, wise one, with very interesting personality

    • @user-sf6td1qu9y on December 6, 2023 at 6:18 am

      Yes he is very handsome.

  7. @salmanalam7994 on December 5, 2023 at 6:30 am

    I am the person with this kind of metabolism.
    Thank you Dr .Eric for such valuable information.Lots of prayers for you.

  8. @Randomvids586 on December 5, 2023 at 7:49 am

    So is it better to have a slow metabolism because it’s cheaper on food expenses

    • @helenevion5948 on December 9, 2023 at 8:39 am

      It’s certainly cheaper and it provides more time and freedom because one is not glued to food thoughts most of the day.

    • @Drberg on December 9, 2023 at 11:16 am

  11. @nice2you164 on December 5, 2023 at 6:49 pm

    Can you please do something on Visceral fat and why it decided to go behind the abdominal wall instead in front of the abdominal wall.
    What diets in particular can pin point the issue

    • @helenevion5948 on December 9, 2023 at 8:24 am

      Some of Dr Berg’s videos /articles on belly fat will help.

  12. @aamirhussainshaikh1637 on December 5, 2023 at 7:16 pm

    Thanks alot for your valuable .

    informationAfter keeping so many fasting my metabolism became slow . Therefore I thought it might not be good therefore I started to consume more food to increase my metabolism.

  13. @UsEr-uq4kw on December 5, 2023 at 9:40 pm

  14. @1888bry on December 6, 2023 at 5:17 am

  15. @raheem2845 on December 6, 2023 at 9:13 am

    I have a very inefficient metabolism then, my body pretty much just wastes its energy lol

  16. @constanceachiaafranie138 on December 7, 2023 at 3:32 am

    Thank you, Dr. Berg, for bringing to my memory the importance of slow metabolism and energy sources.
    Lower calories help me a lot.👌💪🤩

  17. @RkicF8 on December 7, 2023 at 4:07 am

    I have a very slow metabolism. Had a bowl of soup today, dont feel like eating. But I produce a lot of heat for some reason. First to break a sweat.

    • @healthyketoexperiment7964 on December 9, 2023 at 5:44 am

      That’s great 👍

  18. @sridharthumiki7755 on December 7, 2023 at 6:38 am

    Most affectionately explained and your comparison with the motor engine is worth a billion.Thanks🌹

  19. @johnshue8082 on December 8, 2023 at 10:55 am

    Body adapting to the Feast-Famine cycle. We will see this again.

  20. @lah1743 on December 21, 2023 at 10:25 am

    When i was a baby, my mom was worried i was fat, but ate little. The doctor said my system was just efficient. I’m the same today. I eat little, walk 30 miles week, and still a hefty lady. I always said my ancestors must have starved and my energy system was a slow burning fire. My mom is the opposite, so I’ve noticed differences in energy systems. I’m the turtle, she’s the hare, quick, eats alot, light, always moving, more high strung. Thank you for saying my system is efficient, since everyone is always telling me I need to eat more.
