I think mines higher than the average person. I realize it slows down with age. I have long arms and legs so that might help me have faster metabolism.

I have incredibly high metabolism but I am a very petite young woman. I don't think it has much to do with height but if I don't eat every couple of hours, I could faint and I can eat just about anything I want without gaining a single pound.

I think I have an average metabolism I do not think your metabolism has anything to do with the length of your arms or legs. I have seen little people with high metabolism and I have seen very tall people with very slow metabolism.

I don't think long arms and legs have anything to do with your metabolism. I have a very slow metabolism it's hard for me to loose weight because of that.

Hi elmiko, good day to you. Well me i think i have a high metabolism, because i always feel hungry and i always eat many foods. I always eat food but the problem is i did not get big and now i am very thin. Well if you have a high metabolism? I think you must drink a lot of water to avoid ulcer because as i know when your metabolism is very high meaning your acidity is very high. So may be, i think you must go for an exercise to be healthy or just go to a doctor to ask, what the thing that you must do. As my expirience in ulces, it is really painful and it is very hard to cure,which the thing that you must do in curing it is by maintaining it,in order for you to recover fast. Well that's all my response to your forum topic discussion entitled "do you have a high metabolism?". Happy posting to you and happy earning. . . Good day! Godbless us always! ! !

I used to have a metabolism that never stopped I am small with short arms and legs.I used to run around like a two year old wearing everyone else out.I have slowed down a bit now as I am a lot older than you.Just make sure you eat well,get plenty of rest and enjoy your life.xxx

I've always had a high metabolism. It's great if you're a girl, but if you're a guy, which I am, then it sucks because you look like a stick figure. I guess that isn't all because of a high metabolism. I have a thin frame which contributes to that as well but still. I know that my metabolism is slowing down because I am getting a pouch in my stomach, but that's due to eating a lot of junk food and not working out.

My metabolism is so slow it is stagnant. I have been trying to lose weight, but it just stays the same. But then again, I am the short stocky type. I do think it is having long arms and legs that sort of help and of course, you being a guy. Us women have a harder time. If you are small or medium boned and if you are tall, then your heart works harder so your metabolism speeds up, but when you are shorter and larger boned, your heart hardly have to do anything.
