Do low calories really slow metabolism?
Less calories and slowing of metabolism.....yes. Permanent....only if you reach room temperature. Damage....is relative and tough to measure so depending on the Woo peddler they may have you believe damage and doom but simply put less fuel (calories) = a slowing metabolism but not a damaged or 'permanently damaged' unless someone is selling a book or a diet plan.
