Six bad habits that affect your metabolism
You don’t drink enough water, especially in the morning
Staying hydrated is imperative to making sure every part of the body is functioning properly. When your body is deprived of water, you burn less calories, and your liver becomes so focused on restoring your water supply that burning fat isn’t a priority. If you struggle with the taste of water, add some lemon or other fruit for a sweeter taste!
You Don’t Get Enough Sleep
Sleep and metabolism are strongly connected. Research shows that people who don’t get enough rest tend to weigh more than those sleeping at least eight hours per night. Poor sleep doesn’t just leave you tired and fatigued; it also slows your metabolism, causes muscle loss and affects post-exercise recovery. This habit can also interfere with your hormone levels, leading to decreased testosterone production, insulin resistance and adrenal disorders.
