If you've gained weight and/or feel cold and tired it may just be that you have a slow metabolism.
The next question of course is “why is my metabolism slow”?
Well, that's a great question! Since your metabolism is how your body takes food and oxygen and uses it to fuel all of its biochemical reactions there are a lot of things that can slow it down.
In this post we'll talk about five common reasons your metabolism could be slow including: thyroid hormones, history of dieting, size and body composition, activity level, and lack of sleep. I've also included a tip that you can try for each one of these possible “metabolism busters”.
