    Icon11 Problem - slow methabolism

    Apparently my slow metabolism is one to be blamed for my slower than usual progress.
    I turned vegetarian lately in hope I was making some sort of a mistake with a regular diet, and because I need to shape up.
    But, it didn't help at all.
    I need a suggestion how to speed up my metabolism.
    What is the best choice for me?

    You can consume a lot of water
    Maybe 2000-2700 ml per day.

    Have you had your thyroid checked? T-3 can drastically speed up your metabolism

    Spread your meals out. You should be eating every couples hours. This should speed it up along with staying hydrated.

    Re: Problem - slow methabolism

    Thanks guys for help, but I do drink a lot of water and my health is checked and ok.
    If I would spread my meals and eat as you suggest I would have like 300 pounds till now.
    I don't think it si a good idea, but I will try and see what will happen.

    Re: Problem - slow methabolism

    Make sure that you are tracking everything you eat. It is so easy to either over or under eat and that will slow your progress. If you can increase your protein intake that will also help
    to speed up your metabolism.

    Re: Problem - slow methabolism

    This slowing metabolism is the usual issue of aging people. When you reach 40, the tendency of the body is to gain weight in a natural way even if you donít change your eating habits and your lifestyle. The added weight is blamed on the slow down of the metabolism. And I agree to that. The only remedy, I think, is to change your eating habits and lifestyle to conform with your metabolism. That means you have to eat less and exercise more.

    Agree, Eat small meals, exercise more, add some cardio or walk more.Usually, if you don't eat garbage and workout 3-4 times per week your metabolism starts by itself. Have willpower now and then you can afford almost everything in your food.If all this was observed, I would check the thyroid.

    I track in/outs daily, but even with a minimal intakes and lot of activity, things are not doing well.

    Well, that would explain why would a person in certain age group like you experience a weight problem, but it really doesn't help me there.

    I have small meals, I have cardio and I do a lots of running and yoga.
    My intakes are extremely low, by charts I should spend all that I eat on a fly ( and probably die of starvation).
    I don't eat garbage, I also turned vegetarian.
    I work out every day, with a morning and afternoon routines.
    Water intake is adequate.
    I have myself checked tip to toe, no health problems of any kind.
    There is also no progress and no weight change.
    I have only a few pounds more and my goal is to shape up, so in my opinion nothing excessive like this shoudl be even in a bottom of a list.

    This may sound crazy, but you may be doing to much and your body is fighting you. That does happen. Sometimes you just need to give your body a break and then get back at it.

    Testosterone can help with aging.

    So, you are telling me I should do exactly what I was doing before, which got me where I am in the first place.
    Weird...

    No, I am not sure what you were doing before. What I am saying is you can burn out your body to the point that your body just shuts down.

    Before I was doing pretty moderate program and I started to gain weight, so it was pretty much a sign that my body is storing fat over a lack of activity because no other reason is logical.
    I am gaining weight even with this 'over-activity' so I am pretty near of giving up because this lasts for a while now.

    Re: Problem - slow methabolism

    A few things that we need to address.

    1.Have you had recent blood work? Need a full panel.
    2. What meds are you taking?
    3. Are you taking measurement?
    4. How are clothes fitting?
    5. How long have you been doing this program?
