In this video, we’re going to talk about 13 reasons why your metabolism is slow. If you struggle with weight gain and can’t seem to lose weight, this video is for you.
Take a look:
1. Age - As you age, growth hormone lowers. Fasting and exercise (especially (HIIT) increase growth hormone.
2. Menopause - Menopause can cause high cortisol, which alters metabolism. Support your adrenal glands to fight high cortisol.
3. Pregnancy - Being pregnant causes high estrogen. Avoid dairy, flaxseed, soy, and other estrogenic foods.
4. Dieting - The longer you’ve been on a low-calorie diet, the worse your metabolism will be. Keto and intermittent fasting is the best remedy.
5. High-carb diets - High-carb diets cause insulin resistance
6. Chronic stress - Stress increases blood glucose levels, leading to poor metabolism.
7. Hypothyroidism - This is often an immune system problem rooted in the gut that affects metabolism.
8. Fatty liver - The liver helps regulate hormones that control your metabolism, such as growth hormone, insulin, cortisol, and estrogen. Choline, fasting, and keto can help a fatty liver.
9. Obesity - The more fat you have, the more estrogen you make. In turn, this can cause more issues with your metabolism.
10. Snacking - Every time you eat, you spike your insulin levels, which affects your metabolism.
11. Alcohol - Alcohol contains carbohydrates and also blocks your ability to tap into fat burning. Alcohol can turn off fat burning for up to 48 hours.
12. Early childhood infection - An infection in early childhood can slow down a child’s metabolism.
13. Medications - Certain medications can slow down your metabolism.
