WHY YOUR METABOLISM IS SLOW
Read below to for more details!
Do you have a slow metabolism?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Listen, so do many people⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are a few possibilities here so please consider all of them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) Metabolic adaptations- You have been dieting for a long time or dieting drastically or just under-eating which has resulted in your metabolism slowing down. That is why “diets” should not be chronic. Include things such as diet Breaks or change up your diet by including regular intervals higher calorie days.
2) NEAT- You may just not be very active. If you have a desk job or have low spontaneous activity like fidgeting, then you are burning fewer calories. Fix this by having a step goal and staying on your feet.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) You are eating more than you think- Sorry. Most people just eat more than they think. That could be oil you cook with, that could be inaccurate portioning, it could be sauces and condiments you add, etc. Try tracking everything you eat on a food scale and MyFitnessPal for 1 week. That will teach you about what and how much you actually are eating.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is technically possible to have a slow metabolism. But most people’s genetic variation is actually quite minor. There are other factors, like the ones mentioned above, which actually explain your “slow metabolism”.
