You Are Gaining Weight Because Of These 5 Unexpected Reasons http://onewordlife.com/you-are-gaining-weight-because-of-these-5-unexpected-reasons/ Wed, 10 May 2017 18:34:56 +0000 http://onewordlife.com/?p=52 We all just hate when we gain extra weight or when our jeans don’t fit anymore. Are you aware that this can be caused by some hormonal imbalance or vitamin deficiency? The body then reacts in certain way like:

Depression

Many antidepressants can cause gaining extra weight, to be more precise from 3-8 kilos but this number can increase with time.

The bad news is that even if you don’t take antidepressants, the depression itself also causes gaining weight as people who feel lonely or sad often consume larger amount of unhealthy food as a way to run away from their problems.

Medication

Other drugs like hormonal and steroid medications as well as beta blockers, contraceptive pills and drugs for regulating blood pressure can cause gaining extra pounds.

Slow Metabolism

If you have problems with slowmetabolism and your stool is unformed then maybe the reason for gaining weight is lack of nutritive fibre, dehydration, certain drugs or your gut flora.

Lack of Nutrients

Unusual weight gain can be caused by the lack of some nutrients like magnesium, iron or vitamin D which negatively affects your immune system, energy level and metabolism.

Getting Old

As we get old, it is natural for our metabolism to slow down. Our body when we are 40 or 50 is not able to burn the calories as it did when we were 20. That is why we need to exercise more and consume less amount of food.

Stop Doing These 6 Mistakes in Your Diet http://onewordlife.com/stop-doing-these-6-mistakes-in-your-diet/ Wed, 10 May 2017 18:32:13 +0000 http://onewordlife.com/?p=50 Have you noticed that sometimes when you are trying to lose weight and you follow some important rules there are good results but sometimes there aren’t. The same diet can have different results at different periods of time. Are you aware what mistakes make your effort worthless?

  1. You forgot your training

-The biggest truth is that no diet will be effective if you avoid physical activity!

Even if you lose some weight after certain time the pounds will be back for sure especially if you start enjoying unhealthy meals from time to time. On the contrary if you exercise regularly and you consume healthy food you will lose weight in no time.

 

  1. You skip breakfast

-Avoid skipping breakfast if you are trying to lose weight! When you get up in the morning your body needs “fuel” to function normally because your last meal was probably 8-10 hours before. Additionally, when you eat your breakfast you will probably consume less food at lunchtime.

  1. You do not get enough calories

– It is proven that our bodies need certain number of calories to function normally. So, if your calorie intake is less than 1000, then you can face with certain health problems.

Your metabolism will slow down so you will need a couple of years to make it function properly.

  1. Do not control the size of a portion

– You must control the size of your meals but be careful. If you consume larger amount of food, you will have problems with digestion but if your meals are too small then your body will lack some important nutrients (fibre, carbs, protein, minerals, calories and vitamins).

It is extremely important to consume smaller meals 5 times a day rather than consuming larger meals 3 times a day. This habit will boost your metabolism.

  1. You are not sleeping enough

– Proper night sleep is very important as food and water are. So, remember that if you sleep less than 8 hours, your diet effort will not be successful.

Try not to make this mistake especially if you are trying to lose weight.

  1. You eat in nervous and stressful situations

These days almost every person has problems and is under stress due to modern lifestyle. How to avoid this? Junk food and alcohol are not the solution!

Free tips to relieve your stress: Exercise and physical activity can really help. Just go for a walk, spend time with your friends, calm your mind with relaxing music and meditation. Don’t forget to sleep well and to consume food rich in Omega-3 acids.
