You are a very active individual and this will in turn will stimulate your metabolism. There is nothing that I can suggest to slow your metabolism down but if you are concerned that there is something wrong, you can consult a gastroenterologist for a gastroscopy and colonoscopy, to exclude any pathology of the gastrointestinal system.
