Eating healthy and exercising regularly can help prevent sneaky weight gain. However, it’s often the little things that pack on the pounds.
Are you curious about your sudden weight gain? Here are some things that might be causing it.
Being too social
Being too social might be making you gain fat. Social situations often involve food or alcohol, which can easily add unwanted calories to your diet.
Not getting enough sleep
Unfortunately, a lack of sleep is strongly linked to weight gain. This is due to many factors, including hormonal changes and a lack of motivation to exercise
Not eating enough protein
If you replace snacking on chips and other non-healthy foods with high protein foods like nuts and peanut butter, this will help set your body up for success.
When you don’t poop regularly, waste, toxins and even hormones that our body is trying to rid itself of can get reabsorbed into your body and the hormonal imbalances it causes leads to weight gain.
Sitting for too long

People who sit longer are more likely to be overweight. In addition, they have higher risks of chronic diseases and early death.
Not eating enough fibre
Fibre helps control your appetite to keep you fuller for longer and so you wouldn’t need to keep eating a lot of things.
Having irregular meals
Constantly eating at irregular times may be harmful to your health and your waistline. People with irregular mealtimes may often feel more hungry and eat more food and have a higher risk of chronic diseases. This includes metabolic syndrome, heart disease, insulin resistance and poor blood sugar control.
