What Causes Weight Gain
Weight gain can be extremely frustrating and usually we associate it with eating too much. However, there could be other reasons why you may be gaining weight, even if you are exercising regularly and eating healthily.
Why weight gain occurs
There are a wide number of reasons why you have started to gain weight. The most common being that you have overindulged.
However, there are other reasons why weight gain could occur and some of the reasons which you might not have thought about could include:
- A Medical conditions
- Lacking essential fats
- Food Allergies
- Quitting smoking
- Emotional Reasons
- Hormones and age
- Lack of Sleep
- Insulin Resistance
- Poor Gut Health
- Energy input is greater than energy output
A medical condition
For many people the cause of their weight gain is medical. It could be that there is an underlying medical problem such as Diabetes or another serious illness. There are many more medical reasons for weight gain than most people realize.
While thyroid problems are often cited as an excuse for excessive weight, it can often be a contributing factor to weight gain as it regulates the body’s metabolism.
Some sources have speculated that as many as 10% of women may have thyroid trouble of some degree.
Other medical conditions such as menopause and other hormonal imbalances can have a serious impression on your weight over time.
It could be that you have recently taken a new medication and that is responsible for the weight gain. The contraceptive pill for example is well known for adding extra weight to the body and so if you have just started taking it, it may be worth switching pills.
The contraceptive pill is not the only medication that is well known for increasing weight, steroids and similar medications can lead to putting on weight.
Some medical conditions such as IBS and asthma are often treated using steroids, and this could lead to weight gain.
Please read the insert of your medication and see whether the product can cause weight gain.
The best thing you can do is to rectify the damage caused by medication, because medication tends to damage gut health, especially your gut flora, digestive enzymes and the lining of the gut. Impaired gut health restricts weight loss.
Use the Manna GUT Support to reintroduce healthy gut flora, digestive enzymes and repair the inner gut lining.
Unbalanced gut health also leads to food cravings and weight gain. With the Manna GUT Support, we suggest you take the Manna Blood Sugar Support product to control cravings and suppress appetite the natural way.
