    Yes actually. Lifting weights helps your metabolism and helps burn calories. Anything that you struggle with will help (struggle weight wise). Also some people are born with higher metabolism, i guess you can say they are lucky. But as long as you get enough exercise and lift weight I'm sure eventually you can eat as much as he can - without any repercussions

    A fast metabolism is simply how fast your body breaks down food into the nutrients that it needs and processes them. If you are active, you will tend to be more hungry, as your body requires more nutrients to sustain itself. You already said your friend lost the weight by dieting and excercising. Dieting simply means eating a balance of food that is more nutritional. This helps with the excercise program to give your body the vitamins and minerals that it requires. If your friend still has a high metabolism, it is more than likely he is still somewhat active. Whatever your body doesn't use, it stores for future use. If you are active, you tend to have a higher metabolism, and can eat what you want, I guess. But just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    Actually if your body is healthy, it can burn off all excess calories. So eat healthy foods which you can learn about on site below. Also there is a way (under EXERCISE on site below) to increase your metabolism even if your health is not great so you burn more calories 24 hours per day.

    THERE IS NO WAY TO GET A FASTER METABOLISM! Some drugs can affect it, but your NATURAL metabolism is unchangeable. The reason your friend eats more is because he is using more energy then he used to because he is exercising more.

    metabolism doesn`t change overnight . You have to change your mind attitude and really begin positve thoughts b4 anything will work. Most diets(or whatever) will not work unless you have a positive attitude

    consume 6 small nutrition on a regular basis, exercising 2-4 cases a week, and drink lemon water in the previous you consume something interior the morning. The lemon water will stay on your equipment by the day and consume the fat which you consume. :)

    If you eat a lot of small meals throughout the day it can sometimes help.
