Metabolic Adaptation: – The body may adapt to a lower calorie intake, leading to a slowdown in metabolism.

Caloric Intake Creep: – Gradual increases in portion sizes or additional snacks can contribute to an unnoticed increase in calorie consumption.

Inadequate Protein Intake: – Protein is essential for muscle preservation, and insufficient intake can result in muscle loss, slowing down metabolism.

Lack of Variety in Workouts: – The body may adapt to a routine exercise, causing diminished calorie burn. Incorporating variety can reignite progress.

Fluid Retention: – Changes in salt intake, hormonal fluctuations, or stress can lead to temporary water retention and weight fluctuations.

Inadequate Sleep: – Poor sleep can disrupt hormonal balance, leading to increased cravings and a potential slowdown in metabolism.

Stress Hormones: – Chronic stress can elevate cortisol levels, promoting fat storage, particularly around the abdominal area.

Undereating: – Severely restricting calories may lead to a slowdown in metabolism as the body enters a conservation mode.
