Do you like watching TV while munching packs and packs of crisps? Do you love trying out exotic new recipes all the time…? Do you still feel hungry after having a huge lunch? Looks like you are in for a mammoth weight rise looming in the horizon.
Generally an increase in weight is due to imbalanced diet. An imbalance between the intakes of calories along with a decrease in the metabolic rate of the body causes a sudden increase of weight. Calories are the main source of energy for the body. The body uses these calories in metabolism. The amount of calories needed by the body is utilized by converting them from carbohydrates to glucose. If we consume more calories than needed, the excess energy is stored as fat in the body which certainly results in a weight gain. Weight stays about the same if the energy from food matches the energy requirements of the body.
These fats are generally bulky in nature and tend to settle in places which have very low metabolism rate like hips and stomach. This accumulation of fats causes the increase in weight and extreme cases lead to obesity.
However, it is not the only reason why people undergo huge weight changes. Even though you are a diet careful person, the one who exercise regularly as compared to watching TV, you still face such situations. However, there usually is an explanation for weight gain, and although it is usually the case that your calorie intake has gradually been increasing or your activity levels decreasing without you necessarily noticing, it is not always the case.
At this point, people feel that such abrupt changes are out of their control but are mistaken in thinking so. However such increase of weight might prove disruptive to their normal lives and utmost priority must be given in addressing these situations.
One of the possible reasons of weight increase can be attributed to change in rate of metabolism. In the teens, we can eat what ever we want and our body copes up with it. But when we approach the mid 30’s, the rate of metabolism slows down and the eating habits remain the same. This again leads in accumulation fats in thighs, hips and bottoms.
Stress to plays a major role in increase of weight. The stress response of our body is triggered and it decreases the rate of metabolism in the body. This causes in storing of energy as well as release of hormones like cortisol and leptin which lead to obesity. People dealing with stress sometime resort to eating food in excess thus intensifying the weight gain.
Some times medical ailments such as hypothyroidism, Cushing’s syndrome or Polycystic ovary syndrome act as the reasons to sudden weight increase. Other reasons maybe steroids , medication prescribed for diabetics and blood pressure may also result in such weight gain.
A few other reasons include lack of sufficient sleep and quitting smoking. This causes a change in the metabolism rates and as a result there is an increase of weight. For such medical conditions, it is safe to consult a doctor and take proper steps in controlling the weight.
