7 Things That Slow Down Your Metabolism

Comments (0) Health Buzz


Your body burn calories on its own because every cell plays a role in energy metabolism to keep your lungs pumping, muscles moving and heart beating. So the faster your metabolism is the more calories you are burning. These are 7 things to avoid if you are trying to maintain a faster metabolism.

Pesticides in produce
Chemicals that are in pesticides can interfere with the energy-burning process of your body. This makes it harder for you to lose weight.

Weird eating schedule
It was found in a Hebrew University study that mice that were fed high fat foods sporadically gained more weight than those that ate the same diet but on a regular schedule. If you eat at the same times every day, your body is able to burn more calories between meal times.

Lack of Sleep
People who sleep less move less the next day because they are tired. This reduces the amount of calories that their bodies burn. Sleep deprivation actually reduces the amount of energy your body uses at rest.

Eating too little
When you don’t eat enough calories, your body goes into starvation mode which slows your metabolic rate in order to conserve fuel.

Sitting too long
It only takes 20 minutes in any fixed position to inhibit your metabolism.

Not Enough Calcium
Calcium plays a key role in your fat metabolism. Meaning it determines whether or not you burn your calories or store them as fat. A high calcium diet could help you burn your fat.

Your body depends on water. If you are dehydrated, you could burn up to 2 percent fewer calories.
