Firstly I’d like to say this; if you have any legitimate medical conditions that have been diagnosed (hormonal issues, nutrient deficiencies, age related illness etc) then you need to listen to your specialist and work through your health issues, I wish you a speedy recovery.
If you haven’t had the above officially diagnosed then here are the 3 top reasons for your slow metabolism.
Oh, before that though.
A ‘slow metabolism’ in healthy adults isn’t really a thing, it’s just an excuse for people that need a convenient excuse for their excess body fat that people won’t question, that said I’m sure there will be the coveted ‘exception’ who disagrees with what will be written below because, reasons.
You’ll find a lot of people are certain that they ave a slow metabolism and I’m going to tell the three main causes of it.
1 – Sub optimal amounts of lean muscle tissue
2 – A sedentary lifestyle
3 – Excessive daily calorie consumption
All of these lead to your ‘slow metabolism’.
Yep, sucks doesn’t it.
Since I’m nice I will give you three ways you can reverse your slow metabolism.
1 – Lift weights & get stronger
2 – Spend less time sat on your ass and increase your NEAT (non exercises activity thermogenesis) by moving more each day
3 – Try not to eat like a child that has thrown a tempter tantrum all to get bag of sweets, aim for more nutrient dense foods instead 🙂
There you have it, what causes a slow metabolism and how to reverse it.
