Your metabolism can be your best or worst employee, depending on how you treat it. When you take good care of your body, your metabolism is willing to work hard for you, ensuring that you will be getting a high return on investment – good health and longevity.
On the other hand, if you deprive your body of proper nourishment, your metabolism becomes vindictive by slowing down its productivity and refusing to show up from time to time, causing low energy levels, stress, and gradual weight gain.
Poor work output by your metabolism over time can lead to troublesome complications like diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. So what can you do to treat your metabolism, one of your most valuable workers, better?
“I’m doing everything right, but the scale just won’t budge!” If you find yourself making several changes but still not noticing a difference, your metabolism could be to blame. In a perfect world, our metabolism would be untouchable, and we would never have to worry about unwanted weight gain, but in reality, our metabolism is as delicate as a newborn baby. It can be affected by many factors including diet, stress, and sleep deprivation.
