In brief: Metabolism comes ?
Metabolism speaks to the heat generated by the bodies utilization of food stores, and the interconversion of one food, protein for example, into glucose.
Obviously when exercising the body's metabolism is up, because food sources, glucose and free fatty acids are being used at an incredibly high rate!
