This Is How You Messed Up Your Metabolism

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 6 daily bad habits that hurt your metabolism.

A healthy metabolism is one of the most important factors on your journey to Live Lean.

Think of it this way.

Your metabolism is like a torch responsible for burning calories and stored body fat.

6 Daily Bad Habits That Hurt Your Metabolism

Unfortunately, these 6 poor daily habits can ultimately turn down the heat, and destroy your fat burning furnace.

Let’s jump into it.

#1. Your Poor Sleep Habits

When you deprive yourself of sleep:

Focus on getting 7-9 hours of quality sleep a night.

Here’s a video post on 4 Sleep Friendly Foods that can help you get a deeper and higher quality sleep.

#2. You’re Over Consuming The Wrong Kind Of Caffeine Drinks

Studies show that a cup of coffee in the morning, via the caffeine, can actually help increase your metabolism.

The problem occurs when your coffee turns into a sugar bomb.

The fattening sugar can override the metabolism boosting effects of the caffeine.

I want you to opt for black coffee, or my homemade coconut oil stevia coffee, or stick with green tea.

Green tea contains special antioxidants that can help the body release fat from the fat cells to be burned for energy.

Let’s keep moving.

#3. You Eat Too Many Processed Foods

By limiting the amount of processed sugars, you’ll help keep your metabolism on fire.

When eating processed carbohydrates, such as white bread and pasta, the body breaks them down very easily, thus spiking blood sugar, and then slowing your metabolism.

If you have a super sugar craving, stick with fruit like a juicy ripe mango.

#4. You Don’t Eat Enough Protein

Protein is your metabolism’s BFF.

For instance, after eating a chicken breast, it can boost your calorie burn by up to 35%.

If that’s not good enough, protein also helps you build more metabolic boosting muscle tissue and keeps you feeling full.

Damn that’s good!

#5. You Are Starving Yourself

When you deprive your body of the calories it needs to operate, this slows your metabolism down to a crawl.

I’ve seen this happen to so many of my friends who compete in fitness competitions.

They cut calories way too quickly for an extended period of time.

When the show is over, their metabolism is slowed to a snail’s pace and they quickly blow up like a fish.

#6. You Cardio Yourself To Death

Study after study shows an extreme calorie deficit combined with excessive cardio can destroy your metabolism.

Just look at the contestants on the Biggest Loser.

There was an article in the New York Times about this.

The contestants quickly lose a pile of weight through excessive measures during the show, while also losing their metabolism boosting muscle.

When the show is over, their body just implodes.

Their metabolism is extremely slow, and all the weight, and in some cases more, packs back on.
