Has your favorite pair of jeans seemed to shrink over the last month magically? Has stepping on the scale become a dreaded experience? If you're like most women, you're bound to gain weight periodically, but there are some steps you can take to limit the gain. Here are the top 5 reasons for weight gain:
1. Not Eating Enough
Although it may seem counter-intuitive, if you're severely limiting your daily calories, it can be doing more harm than good to your weight goals. Limiting your calories and starving your body will slow your metabolism causing your body to store more fat.
If you're stressed about your job or personal issues, you could be committing one of the most serious diet crimes: emotional eating. Stress from everyday life will lead your body to produce more of the cortisol hormone which increases your appetite. With an enormous appetite, you're more likely to choose junk food over healthier options.
3. Being a Couch Potato
If you aren't getting your daily exercise and instead choose to binge watch the latest TV series, your body won't be burning the calories from the food you eat. There's an easy solution, however. Stop by BBounce Studio and get started on your fitness goals!
4. Partying Too Hard
A drink here and there is okay, but if you're downing sugary cocktails every weekend, the weight will add up quickly! Limit your alcohol consumption, and you will notice considerable changes in your weight goals.
5. Too Much Salt
Eating excess sodium in your diet will cause higher rates of water retention, leading you to feel bloated and heavier in the end. Limit how much salt you eat every day and monitor your sodium intake as much as you track calories and other macros.
