"My metabolism is really slowing down, Nora" most of my clients say.
It might seem like that.
But it's much less likely that your metabolism is slowing down that you think.
Here's how to really check what's going on... Ask yourself these 3 basic questions:
1) Am I getting restful sleep most nights of the week?
2) Do I have good coping skills to manage my stress?
3) Have I been able to maintain a weight for the last 5 years?
If you answered NO to the first two, stop blaming your metabolism
If you answered NO to all three, then it's time to get help.
The best way to boost your natural metabolism without tricks, supplements or restricting calories is to work on sleep and stress.
Sleeplessness and unmanaged stress are often the silent metabolism killers
If after you get sleep and stress in alignment, then you can start asking if its really your "slow metabolism"
Another hidden reason why your metabolism might be sluggish is for medical reasons.
I cannot tell you how many times I have to encourage my clients to go get a physical from their doctor and to take their regularly prescribed blood pressure medications.
Nutrition and weight loss are functions of well-managed physiological and psychologic systems, which must be dealt with in the right order.
