new study in Science explodes almost everything we thought we knew about age and metabolism. 

One of the most comprehensive studies on metabolism ever conducted, it involved over 80 researchers, took over 40 years, and studied data from 6,500 people between the ages of eight days old and 95 years.

If you find yourself stepping on the scale day after day in hopes you’ll see a significant change, only to be disappointed by unmet expectations, then you’ll be happy to know that there are more ways than one to measure your weight loss and the scale doesn’t have to be one of them.
