Review four more “secret” reasons for weight gain here to help your efforts.
You Focus on Social Media Too Much
Always scrolling through social media can have a detrimental impact on your weight.
“We’re more addicted to social media than ever, which often translates to snacking late at night while at the computer,” say The Nutrition Twins, Lyssie Lakatos, RDN, CDN, CFT and Tammy Lakatos Shames, RDN, CDN, CFT. “Nighttime exposure to light from computers, phones, and tablets is linked to interrupted sleep and negatively impacts your body’s stress hormones, your metabolism, and how much fat you store around your midsection.”
You Listen to Music While You Eat
Distracted eating is no friend to weight loss.
“Sound is typically labeled as the forgotten food sense,” says study researcher Ryan Elder of Brigham Young University. “But if people are more focused on the sound the food makes [as they eat it], it could reduce consumption.”
You Don’t Watch How Much Sodium You Consume
Monitoring your sodium intake is key.
“Our body has biological mechanisms to tell us when to stop eating, and fat activates those mechanisms in people who are sensitive to the taste of fat,” lead author Russell Keast said of a study on the subject. “However, when salt is added to the food, those mechanisms are blunted and people end up eating more food. This can cause you to eat more fatty foods, and over time, your body adapts or becomes less sensitive to fat, leading you to eat more to get the same feelings of fullness.”
You Use Low-Cal Sweeteners
Natural sweeteners such as honey and agave nectar offer the healthiest options.
“These sneaky devils can wreak havoc on your whole digestive system, which can cause weight gain and bloat,” says Shay Kostabi, Master Trainer.
