9 Habits That Slow Down Your Metabolism and Lead to Weight Gain

4. Sitting for too long

If you spend most of your day behind your desk, you should be aware that sitting for a long time can affect your metabolism. Many studies have proven this and many companies actually encourage their staff to do a few stretches and simple movements every 30 minutes.

5. Jet lag

All of us have an internal clock and if it’s interrupted frequently, the whole body suffers, especially the metabolism.

6. Not getting enough calcium

Getting enough calcium is extremely important when it comes to regulating your metabolism. If you don’t like milk or are lactose intolerant, it’s not a problem as there are lots of food that are high in calcium and you can definitely find something you like.
