Weight gain is a physical gradual act of body metamorphosis evident by increased fat stored in areas of the body. Weight gain is mostly brought on by eating more than you physically workout. The formula is simple – eat less and exercise more, you loose weight; eat moderately and exercise well, you maintain weight; eat a lot and exercise little, you gain weight. In as much as this formula seems simple, many times, women are undergoing bigger problems that cause the mind to take over whereby all they can focus on is peace of mind – and what gives better peace of mind than comfort eating and relaxing? The following, applicable to women who are above age 25 or married or have had children, are top 3 proven factors that cause women to forego exercise, eat more and thus gain weight:
- Lack of Intimacy or sexual activity. Women who forego sex mostly have a strong tendency to gain weight especially if the celibacy period drags on for a long period of time. Sex is food for many women and without it they turn to chocolates, ice-cream, burgers and spaghetti!
- Stress or in extreme cases, depression. Stress most often is mentally induced brought on by health issues or overworking conditions. Stress levels should be reduced as much as possible to allow weight maintenance or weight loss. Factors that contribute to stress are heartbreak and mental torture.
- Discomfort in Life. Different from stress, discomfort is general unhappiness in your current life situation – it could be spiritually, financially, health related, stuck in an abusive relationship, boredom, skin breakouts, hair loss or similar occurrences that temporarily displease.
