Do you eat right and still feel unenergetic at the end of the day? Is your body gaining weight easily and not shedding at the same rate? It can be because of poor metabolism. Metabolism is a process which converts food into energy. If your metabolic rate is too slow, then it can lead to weight gain and feeling tired all the time. People often highlight a lot of the facts about what to do if you want to increase your metabolic rate, but we somehow avoid the mistakes which we might be making.
So, in case you also feel your metabolic rate is not up to the mark, then look for these things which might be slowing it down.
Yes, you read that right. In order to lose weight, we decrease the number of calories we are taking. If you suddenly decrease the food you are eating, your body senses it and leads it to burn calories at a slower rate. You should cut down on calories if you are on a weight loss but not so much that it can play with your system.
Not eating enough protein
Protein is one of the most important components if you want to achieve a healthy weight. A diet rich in protein increases the energy levels in the body and also boosts the metabolism rate.
If you are living a lazy life, then definitely your body will react in the same way. Restricted physical activity makes your body feel tired without doing anything as it slows down the metabolic rate. It is important that you must indulge in any type of physical activity, be it running, cycling, walking or going to gym.
If you are not getting an 8 hours sound sleep every night, then it is one of the major reasons of decreased metabolism in your body. Try to get enough sleep, so that your body can wake-up in full swing the next day.
Having processed food
Eating enough doesn’t mean gulping processed food. It means eating healthy foods which strengthen your body and protect it from diseases. Processed food only makes your body consume excess fat and salt/sugar which can lead to many illnesses.
