Will it have stunted my growth?

If you are 13 and your metabolism slows down because of dieting, does this mean that your growth slow down?, does a slow metabolism mean slow growth and vice versa?

    metabolism is purely how fast your body digests your food. If you have a quick one its more than likely you would have less fat than someone who as a slower one(not taking into account diet). Your metabolism doesnt slow down when you diet. healthy dieting and regualr exercise can actually spee up your metabolism. Remember also not eating actually slows down your metabolism making you digestive system slow. Its much better for you to have smaller and more regular snacks and meals.
