Do you have a Sluggish Metabolism - thyroid

Eating healthy, exercising, and still piling on the kilos? You could have a slow metabolism. Here are 10 symptoms that could signal a metabolic issue. Have you been counting calories meticulously, exercising, getting plenty of sleep, and still not seeing the scale budge? It may not be your fault; your inability to shed those stubborn kilos could be because of a sluggish metabolism.

Your metabolism is the process by which your body burns energy for basic bodily functions such as your heartbeat, brain function, and breathing. Since your metabolism burns food for fuel, those with a fast metabolism can seemingly eat whatever they want and not gain weight, while those with a slow metabolism have to work that much harder to lose or maintain their weight.

Signs of a slow metabolism

  • Thinning hair
  • Can’t lose weight

  • Moods swings
  • Anxiety and or depression

3 – 4  or all of these symptoms could indicate the reason you can’t take off weight or are feeling the above.
