Probably one of my favourite QoL mods, not being able to use it with Cats and Dogs was frustrating me, so I decided to learn how to mod the Sims.
Took a couple of hours and this is my first ever Sims 4 Mod, so please let me know if there are any issues. (No promises that I'll be able to fix them, though!)
What does this mod do?(Copied directly from the original mod page)
This mod has 2 flavors, which modify the speed at which weight and muscle changes happen : "5" divides metabolic changes by 5, and "10" divides metabolic changes by 10. The higher the number, the more stable your sims' weight and muscle is, other than changes caused by food. Furthermore, the higher the number, the slower your sims' muscle mass decays with time.
In addition, this mod adds one detail your romantic sims will appreciate : regular woohoo will help them losing weight and building muscle !
But in return, the higher the number, the harder your sims have to work at the gym to see any noticeable changes on their body shape. This mod has been designed to force your sims to work very hard and on a very long period to allow significant body shape transformation, unlike what the game allows without mods. Higher numbers will make body shape changes unnoticeable until after several days. On the contrary, "5" is a version of the mod that still allows some significant, although moderate, body shape change after one session at the gym.
For this reason, I advise to choose the flavor you want depending on your sims' lifespan and on the level of difficulty you want : "5" is best for normal lifespan, and "10" is best for long and custom lifespans. If you like to play with shorter lifespans, you should avoid using Retuned metabolism and just use the Balanced calories and Underweight teens fix parts of the Natural metabolism mod.
Still don't know what flavor to download ? Try "5" first and see if you want something more challenging with "10" !
I highly suggest downloading the other parts of Natural Metabolism from Candyd
They are both in the related uploads section of this page.
Without them, you're most likely going to end up with a lot of extremely fat Sims as losing weight/gaining muscle is a lot slower with this mod and vanilla food is chock full of calories, even salads...
Conflicts (Exact same as Candyd, didn't add any additional interactions, yet...):
This XML tuning will conflict with other XML tuning mods using the following resources :
You must have the expansion, game version or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

This is a multi-part download:
This mod is the third part of the Natural metabolism mod. Although this mod can work alone, I advise to install the two other parts with it for best results.
This mod has 2 flavors, which conflict with each other. Please install only one !
