A slow metabolism isn't what's causing your slow weight loss, and this wrong diagnosis can completely derail your progress.

You have various chemical reactions going on in the body, like breaking food down into energy, building things back up into body tissue, repairing, maintaining temperature, and eliminating waste. All of these things are a part of metabolism.

But, the real missing factor is the hormone influence over your specific calories. Hormones are basically the communication system in the body.

A very important hormone that's related to whether or not you'll burn or store fat is insulin. If insulin goes up, you store fat. If it goes down, you burn fat. If insulin is too high, that will mimic a slow metabolism. Instead of trying to fix a slow metabolism, you may want to focus on lowering your insulin to boost fat burning.

Symptoms of high insulin:
• Increased hunger
• Cravings for carbs
• Frequent urination (especially at night)
• Fatigue
• Cognitive issues
• Lowered mood
• Increased belly fat and liver fat
• A high set point
• Increased gluconeogenesis (your liver makes excess sugar)

The top triggers of insulin:
• Carbohydrates
• Sugar
• Frequent eating
• Excess protein in the diet
• Fake fibers
• Stress
• Inflammation
• Belly fat
• Lack of sleep

How to decrease insulin:
1. Get on the ketogenic diet
2. Do fasting
3. Exercise
4. Consume natural fiber from vegetables
5. Consume fat in your diet
6. Take vitamin B1, potassium, and vitamin D
7. Consume apple cider vinegar
