Your weight will double once you give in to your temptation and eat more than usual.

Myth: Less Calorie Intake translates to an Enhanced Metabolism

Metabolism is the process, wherein the body creates and uses energy, taking the form of anabolism, which is responsible for taking energy to create cells; or catabolism, the breaking down of cells to create energy. If the energy is not used then it gets stuck in the body in the form of fat.

Hence, less calorie intake does not usually boost your metabolism since the calorie count is not the same as before.  Most people did not realize that metabolism slows down when calories severely reduced.  When this happens, the body will act accordingly and tries to preserve itself by creating more fat.

Myth: Low Intensity Workouts is Needed to Boost Metabolism

Since low intensity workouts are not enough for a person to break a sweat, they are not a good workout to work the heart.  Aerobics is the recommended if you want to workout your heart, which lead to a faster metabolism.  Aerobics are one form of high intensity workout that forces the body to seek energy in order to maintain the current metabolism.
