Weight gain. Very few people are really looking to gain weight and yet that’s exactly what has happened over the last two years. I would like to take just a short time here to give you some information. This could be perceived as the lack of tips on how to impede weight gain, but hear me out.
When you actually get to know your body, and I mean really get to know your body, you will find out that the things that work for a colleague, relative, or spouse aren’t the things that will work for you. Somehow you try them with hopes that you can skate by and get the same or better results. Nope, it doesn’t happen. Everyone is the same but different, and different is the operative word here.
“Everyone is the same, but different”
Men will usually have an easier time than women losing weight if everything is in balance, however, that doesn’t mean that women should just give up and resign themselves to a life of fluff or living off of ice cubes and water.
Nor does this mean if you are a man and you are struggling, that you have done something completely wrong and that you are doomed. My personal favorite statement is “I’m always at the gym and working out, but not much is happening” again, not your fault.
Weight Loss Is A Science
The predictability of weight loss is more of a science than an adequate relationship to the latest fad diet book or program advertised on TV, Facebook, Amazon, or where ever. Weight loss predictability has a strong correlation to several things.
Are you vitamin deficient?
If so which ones?
Are your hormones slowing down too much?
Are you taking medications that have the side effect of weight gain?
Is your gut functioning free and clear of bad bacteria?
Do you have undiscovered food allergies?
How about your lifestyle?
The list of reasons goes far beyond calling anyone lazy, sloth-like, or having a lack of self-control. I’m here to tell you these are real issues.
I’d like to give you an example and I have permission from this person to say this because it’s myself! I have food allergies to eggs, soy, and chicken. Yes, chicken! I mean who is allergic to chicken!!! Well, apparently I am.
Chicken is supposed to be healthy right? That’s what we are always told. Well not for me. Eating chicken will cause inflammation in my system like no other which leads to swelling, painful joints, extra weight, and other health problems. Not to mention that pesky thing it does when it interferes with my heart rate and breathing.
Well now that we have that information under our belts, what’s a person to do next? My advice would be this;
- Notice what you are eating and what happens to you right afterward.
- Maybe even just jot down on a notepad or keep track on your phone of what happens five hours afterward, twelve hours, and twenty-four hours later. Some people even have symptoms up to forty-eight hours later, but there’s another reason for that we will talk about another time!
- Keep track of those weird symptoms like; runny nose, sneezing, achy joints, feeling bloated, diarrhea, constipation, bad mood, extra sleepy, craving sweets, mental fog, and itchy skin. All of those are your body’s way of saying “this food is not for me”.
- And don’t worry it’s all fixable if you get the “right for you” combination!
- See a Naturopath and get yourself back in balance.
I know this seems rather simplistic and archaic but it’s definitely something you can do at home and get a better handle on things so you can have better days and better nights, I should know!
