I used to warm those bad boys up in the microwave and drop a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Boy I miss having a metabolism.

Metabolism slowing down is a myth, that’s just your lifestyle to blame

Say what you want, if I eat pies and ice cream I’ll get fat, that wasn’t always the case.

When you were a kid I bet you moved around a lot more. Walking from class to class, playing outside with friends, maybe some sports. Now you’ve likely got an office job where you sit all day, you may sit for 30 minutes to an hour to commute both ways, or maybe you just work from home (even less movement)

We don’t really realize it, but for the most part, adults just move less than they did as kids. This is often what we perceive as “metabolism slowing down”. We just have less time to be active.

Between this god damn dog that requires a 30 minute jog twice a day, lifting ~4x a week, and casual sports (skiing at the moment), I’m plenty active.

When I was in college I smoked weed and played video games but I’m fatter now 🤷‍♂️
