User :   Hello, I have a question about metabolism
Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   proceed with your query
User :   hello dr, i would like to ask a question about metabolisms..
Doctor :   yes, please
User :   i always wished to have a super fast metabolism, like eat whatever i want and never gain a pound but my friends are always got that type of metabolism due to their genes.
User :   is there a way to get a super fast metabolism?
Doctor :   ok,
User :   is there a way to get a super fast metabolism?
Doctor :   do you have any problems associated with digestion ?
User :   no but i have tried starving myself so that must have affected my metabolism and slowed it down, but other than that my metabolism is generally normal
Doctor :   you should never starve, instead have a strict non fat and non carbohydrate diet that will help you to get wht you want
Doctor :   since for the energy body will digest the protiens you will feel lighter
User :   the problem is that i dont want to diet, i had enough food restrictions and calorie counting. My question here is that can a normal metabolism become super fast by surgery?
Doctor :   and both carb and fat are known to be deposited as stores in the body if had in excess
Doctor :   metabolism is occurs in every cell of your body, there is no surgery which will fasten the metabolism
Doctor :   but there are some to prevent obesity
User :   so there is no solution to get a super fast metabolism only from genes or diet and exercise?
Doctor :   exercise is the only best way
Doctor :   added to it diet helps
User :   sadly this is not what i wanted to hear, i expected a solution for my problem but thanks anyway
Doctor :   I am really sorry
Doctor :   i do not want to mislead you with myths
Doctor :   i mean false myths
User :   no its okay, but there are no medications?
Doctor :   no,
User :   ok thank you
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting
