Do You Want to Break Free of the Chains of a Slow Metabolism?

Are you struggling to lose weight despite your efforts? Maintaining a healthy weight can be challenging, especially if you're dealing with a slow metabolism. Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is essential for weight management as it determines how many calories your body burns at rest.


You're not alone if you've noticed unexplained weight gain or difficulties in shedding pounds. If you are wondering, "why do I have a slow metabolism and how do I speed it up", I can help!. This blog will discuss natural methods to increase your slow metabolism. These methods will assist you in losing weight and achieving your health objectives sustainably and efficiently.

Basic metabolic labs help you understand part of your metabolism and your health. However, they may not find complex metabolic issues. These complex issues could be stopping your weight loss progress. The quest to shed pounds and boost metabolism demands a comprehensive approach, delving deeper than surface-level tests.

Settling for a basic understanding of your metabolism can lead to frustrating plateaus or difficulty reaching your desired weight loss. Understanding that comprehensive tests, personalized to your needs, is vital to uncover hidden obstacles for successful weight loss.

For instance, I tested one item called leptin. If it is high, it can cause slow metabolism and trouble burning calories for fuel. High leptin can cause increased fat storage, leading to heart disease, fatty liver, and other health issues.

My body tends to retain fat, and I've also struggled with elevated leptin levels. Despite being healthy fats, consuming avocados, nuts, and nut butter can lead to weight gain for me. I have seen this issue multiple times with my clients. If leptin is high and we cut fats from their diet, they drop weight fast.

Another item I look at is c reactive protein which looks at the total inflammation level of a person's body. If inflammation is high, you may feel swollen or puffy and have pain. Inflammation can slow your metabolism and stop you from physical activity to lose weight and gain lean muscle mass.

Many women exercise and track their number of calories, protein, carbs, and fat but still struggle to lose weight. However, when we test their saliva hormones, we observe elevated tissue hormone levels. Excess hormones in the tissues lead to unwanted weight gain.

When you learn more about your metabolic health, a fast metabolism may be just around the corner.

Come on over and order your comprehensive metabolic testing today. You do not have to settle for a slow metabolism.
