TWEETORIAL AHEAD: This summer, I had a rare opportunity to join an @NIH study and spend 23 hours sealed inside an 11-by-11.5-foot metabolic chamber... and I got a granular look at how metabolism works. A few takeaways:
1) *Metabolism is not a single thing in you that you can control.* It's thousands of chemical reactions that turn the energy (calories) we eat and drink into fuel in every cell. These reactions change in response to our environments & behaviors, in ways we have little control.
2) *Exercise accounts for a relatively minor portion of total energy burn* (17 percent in my case). And in an hour and a half on an exercise bike, I only burned 400 calories! A lot less than the 700-800 advertised in 45-minute spinning classes.
