Three Reasons You May be Gaining Weight

No-one has ever said that losing weight is easy – but sometimes, despite your best efforts, you find the scales are moving in the wrong direction.  It’s frustrating and enough to make you give up on trying to be healthier.  However, it may not be a straight-forward reason as to why the scales are stuck:  consider the three points below and ask yourself ‘are any of these reasons causing my weight gain?’

141114 three reasons weight loss slowed down

  1. Stress: Some people lose weight when they’re stressed however most seem to pile it on. If you are constantly under pressure, your weight gain may be due to the excess production of the stress hormone, cortisol, which in addition to negatively affecting your immune system and ability to concentrate, also increases fat deposition in the body.  This is because your body hoards and stores calories in your fat cells to create a physical ‘barrier’ against the stress.  You need to deal with the stress – which is exactly why The Natural Way includes it’s all-natural stress relieving B+ Zinc & Passiflora as part of our weight loss pack
  2. Absent-minded Eating: If you are in the habit of finishing your children’s meals and snacks (as we all hate wasting food, right?), then you are probably sabotaging your weight loss ability too.  Even though the food you ‘pick’ at may not seem like a lot, when you consider how many calories it adds up to over a week, it can be more than one days’ food intake.  Put leftovers in the fridge or give them to your partner (even your dog) – anything is better than you being the garbage disposal.
  3. Poor sleep:  Studies have shown that people who have poor quality, or reduced sleep, have more chance of being overweight, than those who sleep for 8-hours every night.  To try and increase your chance of getting a good nights’ sleep, avoid working too late at night, stop drinking alcohol and eat smaller evening meals.  An all-natural Calcium supplement – such as The Natural Ways’ Formulation CC – taken last thing at night can help to relax your muscles which is also conducive to a great nights’ sleep.

At The Natural Way, we have all-natural solutions to helping you to lose weight and keep it off.  For example, if you are going through menopause or just had a baby, it may be your imbalanced hormones that are contributing to your weight problem.  Our exclusive Natural Woman will help to bring your hormones back into balance naturally which will in turn enhance your ability to shed the excess kilograms.
