3 Habits That Are Wrecking Your Metabolism

June 4, 2014

Some eating habits can cause ruckus to your body and the way it functions. What and how you eat has an effect on the way your body metabolizes food. I’ve listed three habits that could be causing disturbance to the function of your metabolism.

Poor hydration:
Drinking enough water is vital to flushing the toxins out of your body. Also, when extremely dehydrated, your body could possibly send hunger signals rather than thirsty signals. This leaves you eating extra calories when you really just need a nice cold glass of agua.

Calorie restriction:
Say it with me “Starvation Mode”. This is something you do not want to get into. No one can keep up with severe caloric restriction for his or her entire life. Guess what happens when you finally eat again? Your body says “FOOOOD!!! I’m holding on to you as long as I possibly can and NEVER letting go.” To put it simply, you will gain all your weight back, plus some.

Binge eating:
A trending (and ridiculous) idea going around right now is that eating a lot of food will cause your body to work harder and burn more calories.  Okay sure, your body may use more calories to burn all that food you just ate, but it’s not enough to offset the crazy amount of calories you just consumed.

I hope this helps,
