Metabolism as you think of it is a myth. It's nothing more than the energy required to keep you alive (breathing, maintaining mean mass etc) plus the energy you burn in daily activities (running lifting walking). So yes. But not for some magic reason.
It burns more than that for the average (non-Amerifat) man. Not a whole lot more, but it does make a difference.
Also it does not depend on speed, only distance and weight (technique too but we'll discount that since it is a very difficult thing to judge). Walking depends on speed, distance, and weight (yes, walking is mechanically different).
If you ran a mile in 8 minutes vs. 6 minutes, it's still the same amount burned. Unless you mean two people running for the same time but different speeds, then of course the faster one would burn more.
>>34505995 >I've lost alot of weight but I did it too fast/wrong You didn't do it too fast. >now I still have a gut and manboobs but skinny skeleton everywhere else how do I fix this? This isn't due to speed or "doing it wrong."
You still have manboobs and a gut because you are still fat. Simply not being Amerifat (obese) does not mean you're not still fat.
You fix it by either: A) having actual muscle B) not being fat
I would suggest a bit of both. You are so untrained at the moment that you could probably successfully build muscle and lose fat at the same time for quite some time.
>>34505995 Sorry brah but you're still fat. For guys their gut is usually the first place to gain weight and the last to lose it. Either lift or deal with being a fat skele. Or I suppose you can just keep cutting until you reach actual skeleton mode.
>>34505805 OP i lost a lot more fat when I started running 2-3miles a day than when I did twice as much on the bike. I also feel a lot better after I run than other forms of cardio (tho stairs are fun and feel good too).
so to answer your question: the anons in this thread are scientifically right, but as far as you should be concerned, YES running speeds up how you feel and weight loss which = metabolism as far as you are concerned!
