Gone are the days of letting that number on the bathroom scale have the last word on your health and fitness. And BMI is less than useful.
A metabolic age that is substantially lower than your chronological age means, compared to the average person in your age group, you have more muscle mass, less fat, are probably more active, and therefore can consume more calories.

And as we’ve said before don’t skip your protein shake after you exercise and think that you’ll save calories!
