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

7. Dehydration

Every process in our body depends on water. If you are dehydrated, nothing will work well. A studyfound that drinking water (about 17 oz) may increase your metabolic rate by up to 30%.

8. Lack of protein

Protein plays a very important role in getting and maintaining your perfect weight. In comparison to carbs or fats, protein has a relatively high TEF (thermic effect of food), a parameter which measures the increase in metabolism that occurs after digestion. Plus, it makes you feel full and you end up consuming fewer calories.

9. Lack of resistance training

Resistance training increases muscle mass and having a higher amount of fat-free mass can significantly increase the number of calories you burn while resting. Doing even minimal amounts of resistance training can make a noticeable difference.
