How metabolic rate affects calorie burning?

Our metabolism determines how rapidly we burn calories and some people have fast rate so they burn energy faster than people with slow metabolism. Although our metabolic rate is something we inherit hence we can raise it somewhat by taking regular cardio-aerobic exercise as well as by building up our muscle tissue and both these fitness activities help us to burn extra calories. An efficient metabolism can also be maintained by eating nutrient-dense food, by ensuring our energy-intake does not fall below about 1200 calories a day, and by eating something every 3-4 hours and this gap maintains our weight also.
Calorie-counting is one way of maintaining weight but it only works up to a point and nutrition is also important. Under certain circumstances, food energy cannot be properly metabolised without sufficient minerals and vitamins take for example, the energy in "empty calorie" foods becomes unavailable to our body and is stored as body fat until we ingest the necessary minerals and vitamins at some later time. This is why a healthy calorie-controlled eating plan should be based on nutrient-dense meals and snacks and since the calorie content of fruit is low; its nutritional value is very high.
