Despite that you pay attention to what you eat, and you exercise almost every day, the reality is that the pounds are just pounding inside of you day after day. Or perhaps you are one of those groups of people that exercise on regular basis and eat healthy, but they simply can never explain the circumstances how they manage to put so much weight. If you are in that group don’t lose hope.
Before you give up and surrender yourself to those greasy meals, read the text below and find out all the weird reasons that increase your weight. We are going to show you exactly 7 possible reasons responsible for overweight.
1. You use to much salt (sodium chloride) for dinner
Try to remember what you ate for dinner last night. Indeed it was very salty? Excess use of sodium can retain the water in your body and at the same time can show few more pounds on the scale. Not only that but you will feel very uncomfortable and with bloated stomach. In that case what you should really do is drink 2-3 glasses of water in combination with lemon juice. Make sure you eat at least six hours before you go to bed and with as less sodium as possible.
2. You don’t go so often to the bathroom
Do you feel that your stomach is bloated and that it can explode in every moment? Do you remember the last time you went to the bathroom? If you can’t remember than you must start eating food products rich in fibers like fruits and vegetables. Such products will put your metabolism on a fast track and you will immediately notice the difference.
3. You don’t drink enough water
If you eat dry food with lots of salt in it, and at the same time you don’t drink water, then you body will retain the water that is inside of you to compensate. Drinking enough water will not only help you lose weight but your entire body will improve. Start drinking water throughout the day and see how it affects your mood and your health. You will be more energized and alive and those pounds will begin to melt straight away.
4. You go out at night more often than usual
Maybe this will sound a little bit strange to you but that is a fact. It doesn’t matter if you eat healthy as long as you go out almost every night. When you are with a group of good friends, and you feel relaxed, you often tend to drink one or maybe two cups of your favorite alcohol beverage. Remember that alcohol has as much as calories as any other junk food. Restrict your intake of alcohol not only because of your weight but also because of your health and safety.
5. Use of medications
Being overweight can sometimes be a side effect of certain medications that you use. That could be birth control pills which are known to cause water retention inside the body. There are many other drugs that increase the appetite and forces people to overeat. So if use any pills and you notice slight difference with your weight, immediately consult a doctor.
6. Not enough sleep
Lack of sleep will not only make you feel tired the following day but it will make you more stressed out, and eventually you will gain weight. Being without a quality sleep affects the work of your hormones, by creating a chaos in your body and making you feel hungry. Instead of having a good night sleep your mind will be directed on the food and you will replace your sleep with eating. No matter what make sure to have a good night sleep at least eight hours.
7. You are stressed out all the time
When you are in an unpleasant situation, or when you feel anxiety or some kinda pressure, then your body begins to retain more fat. When the body is in those kinds of stress situations it releases a hormone by the name of cortisol, which stores fat in the abdomen. Find some ways to calm yourself down when you are in a stressful situation. Try by playing some music meditating, playing sports reading a book and etc.
