    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Myths and Facts about Metabolism

    Byroney_WebMD_Staff posted:
    What kind of diet helps your metabolism? How many calories minimum should you take in to keep from slowing it down? Why is it harder for more mature women to lose weight than a man of the same age?

    Learn these answers and more by taking the Metabolism Myths and Facts quiz! I scored in the 70s, so I could have done better, but I did learn some interesting facts.
