Metabolism problems can definitely affect your ability to lose weight.
There is a small minority of people who are finding that despite proper eating and exercise they simply cannot lose weight.
That is probably due to underlying metabolic problems which will require a serious medical investigation.
For the rest of us our weight loss problems are due to our eating habits.
Metabolism is connected with the amount of calories your body burns.
Therefore it is heavily affected by several things such as the amount of exercise you get throughout your day and your food consumption, particularly your carbohydrate consumption..
I am sure you don’t want to hear this; most of us consume far more food than we need to maintain our health.
This would not be so bad if we ate healthy food.
However one of the biggest problems we have is the amount of sugar and carbohydrates we eat. Chocolate and candy consumption play a major part in weight loss problems.
Today most of our calories now come from carbohydrates and sugar.
A lot of metabolism difficulties show up as weight problems and here is an important fact.
Our body can only utilise a small amount of sugar and the rest finishes up as body fat.
SUGAR IS THE MAJOR SCOURCE OF BODY FAT.
This is vital information for anyone who wishes to lose body fat.
Another important piece of information we should all know is that our body can’t utilise any starchy food such as bread, cakes, biscuit’s before our body converts them into sugar.
See sugar craving.
Age also affects your metabolism problems.
As people become older their rate of metabolism decreases as they reduce their activity levels.
Age and a more sedentary lifestyle also contribute to the lower metabolism that particularly affects women of menopausal age.
I would also recommend you temporarily leave
Metabolism problems and go to this page Sugar addiction.
