Top definition
The sum total of all biochemical reactions that occur in a person's body. Digestion of food is just one aspect of metabolism.

Divided into catabolism, where organic molecules are oxidised and degreaded to prodice energy, and anabolism, where small organic molecules are combined to form larger ones at a cost of energy.
My last biochemistry exam was all about metabolism.

May 15 Word of the Day
A few weeks ago, no one had β€œcheugy” in their vocabulary . Now everything is saturated with the word. It’s in our heads. It’s in our homes. Everyone is asking: β€œAm I cheugy? Am I a basic ass bitch? Am I GUILTY of being cheugy?”

The proliferation of cheugy in the mainstream discourse can only be attributed to one source: mental terror. It’s an orchestrated psychological trap to make you question your tastes and interests in the eyes of others.

You are not a cheug. YOU’RE PERFECT!!!!

It is very suspicious that the cheugy mascot is a Minion, a literal cyclops, a deformed
yellow panopticon in overalls ... do not let the all-seeing eye to control you. Be vigilant. Resist cheugy psyops.
Becca is another victim of cheugy psyops. I saw the garbage truck take all her Ugg boots yesterday. She even removed β€œI LOVE The Office!” from all her dating profiles. She’s unrecognizable.

A word that fat people do not understand. They use it as a scape goat for their fat asses instead of admitting to their own laziness.

The rate that you lose weight. Thin people are bitches about it and say that it means nothing.
Example: Josh cant lose alot of weight because he doesnt have a high metabolism

Refers to how rapidly a bar-patron pays his bill.
Alan Jackson may indeed love his "tall and strong" alcoholic creations while playing hooky in Margaritaville, but at least his meTABolism is in good order ("I could pay off my tab"), along with his responsibility about not driving while impaired ("Pour myself in a cab"), so that is a good thing. Just be sure that you keep your boat between the navigational beacons, Alan.
