4 Reasons You Might Be Gaining weight

May 17th 2019 at 3:24 PM

1. Eating "Low Fat" / "Fat-Free" or "Diet" Packaged Food

Listen:

"Low-fat" does not necessarily mean it's low calories.

You see, food manufacturers know that when natural fat in a food is taken out, it tastes horrible.

So, they take out the fat and pump in sugar to boost taste.

And natural fat does not just give food flavour, it also keeps you full longer. Because Amongst the macronutrients, fat takes the longest to digest.

In essence, most low fat packaged foods are full of sugar, less filling and can have just as many calories as the full-fat version.

So, eating many so-called "low-fat" packaged foods will leave you hungry and craving for more food in no time.

And this can lead to you consuming more overall calories throughout the day, thus making you fatter or not lose weight.

2. You have the "sitting" Disease

Did you know that experts are now saying that sitting down is like the new smoking? [1]

It's that bad!

Well, nowadays we are always sitting down. We sit in the car. Sit the office all day. Then go home and we are on the couch all night.

That's why you're probably gaining weight, no doubt.

Do not be a couch potato. You know what I am talking about don’t you?

That shapeless thing that sits on a shapeless chair in front of the television and mindlessly chews on something.

Don't be a couch potato.

According to a study, men who reduced their daily walking from 10,000 steps to less than 1,500 increased their belly fat by 7% after just two weeks!

Try standing more often and always looks for an excuse to walk around. Your waistline and health will be glad you did.

3. Stressing yourself out

I'm sure you probably know stress is all shade of bad for your health.

However, what you might not know is that it can also make you gain weight.

You see, when you’re stressed, a lot of the hormone “cortisol” is released, which signal the body to store more fat (especially around the belly region.)

Come to think of it, when you're stress, you can't bother to make any healthy food choices.

You'll eat anything that comes your way, which also adds to weight gain.

Keep stress in check and your body and overall health will thank you for it.

The only stress management tip I can think of right now is to have more sex (for married people, of course!)

4.Multitasking while eating.

You see, studies have shown that if you do anything else like reading, watching Tv, drive, work and so on while you're eating ...then.... the 
"stop eating" signal from your stomach to your brain malfunctions.

The bottom line is that if you do any other activity while eating,  you'll most likely overeat. And maybe secretly causing you to gain weight.

So, ensure you finish eating before you do any other thing.
