Weight Gain

Sometimes life gets in the way and too much stress can mountain which can cause unhealthy habits to form. We may even be at work too much and only have time to eat that nasty takeaway lying in your freezer when we get back home.

Gaining some weight can be healthy and stops you from being underweight, however gaining weight which allows for health problems or an ‘obese’ appeal can cause you problems as time goes by and as you grow older.

In the United States in 2015, all states had an obesity prevalence more than 20%.”

Gaining weight can be a result of overeating or ‘binge’ eating. It can be down to being inactive for long periods of time. It can even entail unpleasant habits such as excessive drug intake or stressed for long periods of time. What foods are you eating?

Many people struggle to maintain weight loss and working through realistic goals can help you manage your weight better, whether you are trying to gain or lose weight, the same principles apply.

“The World Health Organization (WHO) defines overweight and obesity as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health (WHO, 2016a). A body mass index (BMI) ≥25 kg/m2 is generally considered overweight, while obesity is considered to be a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2.” – Journal of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.

Health conditions can arise as a result depending on the individual’s internal processes such as digestion or poor circulation –

  • Develop a range of conditions such as cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, joint and muscular disorders, respiratory problems, and psychological issues.
  • Can be mentally challenging and may have low levels of energy more often than slim individuals as overweight people may experience ‘fog’ brain more or the need to eat at random times.
  • May find it stressful to cope in fast paced environments, especially playing sports or even exercising.

 

  • May have an enlarged heart as it is closely linked to left ventricular hypertrophy, which means that the hearts pumping chamber has thicker muscle mass, which can allow for heart risks. 

It is best to consider weight‐management strategies that may help individuals to achieve and maintain weight loss for good. Consider eating less and cutting down those refined grains that can put on the belly fat!


Weight Loss

This can actually be simple to do for some as long as you have the knowledge, guidance and patience to do so. Going through lifestyle changes and if the end results are desirable, then suddenly you may find many options to try, it is all down to trial and error.

You may have tried those weight loss shakes, pills or temporary programs but still the weight stands and you may feel inclined to give up completely!

 

When you are losing weight, the fat cells shrink in size as their contents are used for energy. By-products of fat loss include carbon dioxide and water, which are disposed of through breathing, urination, and sweating and disposing of stools.

You may feel uncomfortable through this process as you first lose hard fat around the organs such as the kidney or liver. From there, you tend to see some weight loss around the waistline or stomach area.

Over time, you may feel energetic, and can think clearer and with greater clarity as the fat loss from around the organs makes you feel lighter too.

It is incredibly important not to over indulge yourself with excess foods, that requires discipline and something that you can train yourself to do. It may take time but it can naturally occur over time while even improving positive behaviour in this manner.
