What is ‘metabolic health’ and why does it matter?

“They define metabolic health as having ideal levels of blood sugar, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, blood pressure, and waist circumference, without using medications. These factors directly relate to a person’s risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.”

Weight gain is usually a factor of metabolic hormonal imbalance. Fixing this balance then, leads to weight loss.
