4 Simple Mistakes That Can Be Hurting Your Metabolism

healthy metabolismOn paper, losing weight is a basic math equation. At a safe rate of weight loss, you’d have to diet and/or exercise your way to a 500-calorie deficit every day to lose just one pound a week. But there’s more to weight loss than simply exercising and eating nutrient-packed food. This is where your metabolism comes in.

Your metabolism is a bodily function that helps your body break down the food you eat and turn it into energy. It works to basically fuel your body and burn fat, and it works even when you’re not active. But with this in mind, it is important to know that you have to follow a healthy lifestyle to keep up a healthy metabolism rate.

A slow metabolism can make you feel sluggish, worn down, and hamper your weight loss goals. So make sure your metabolism is healthy by keeping an eye out for these common mistakes.

  • Mistake: Not sleeping enough
    Being chronically sleep deprived can really cause a lot of metabolic issues such as reducing appetite control and boosting cravings. Plus, it can increase your cortisol levels, which store fat in the body and make it harder to burn. So try your hardest to stick to seven to nine hours of sleep every night.
  • Mistake: Drinking too much coffee
    While great in the morning, the caffeine in coffee can dehydrate you. Plus, caffeine is a natural appetite suppressant, which can cause you not to eat. And when you skip a meal, when you finally eat your body will be storing the food you eat as fat instead of using it as energy.
  • Mistake: Not filling up on protein
    Protein is great for boosting your metabolism because it will help you grow muscle. And when you have more muscle in your body, you will be burning more fat per hour, even when sitting down!
  • Mistake: Spending the majority of the day sitting
    Even if you have a desk job, try to get up as often as you can to walk around. Simply moving around can give your metabolism the boost it needs.

Make sure to keep these mistakes in mind during your weight loss journey. You’ll not only have a healthy metabolism, but you’ll feel great in the process.
