Reasons We Gain Weight

By August 25, 2020 Weight Loss


Sounds great, right? Before you even begin the program, you’re imagining fitting into those jeans that have been hanging in your closet or shopping for new beachwear for this year’s vacation.

But here’s the thing: do you know why you are overweight in the first place? Could it be the medication you are on? Or hyperthyroidism? Or do you have asthma or arthritis? In which case corticosteroids could be the reason for excess weight.

Have you heard of Cushing’s syndrome? The key side effect of this condition is weight gain.

Are you stressed? Anxious or depressed? Have you considered Polycystic ovary syndrome? There are so many reasons why we can gain weight and many of them are not because we eat too much and do too little.

The idea of losing 20 pounds in two months may sound attractive and tick all of your boxes for minimal effort and good results; however, without a thorough medical check, you may well be exacerbating preexisting medical conditions that you were not aware of or at least dealing with a problem by introducing another problem.

When it comes to your health, it is a doctor’s care you need–not an advertising gimmick!
