There is more to being healthy that eating healthy foods. These days the TV can take a lot of blame for people being “fat”. We talk about children watching too much television but the fact is many adults are just as guilty.

You may not be aware of this but the lack of sleep can contribute to weight gain. For some reason people who sleep less tend to eat more. Maybe it is just boredom but often inadequate sleep leads to the body wanting food.
If you feel you are eating correctly, getting plenty of sleep, and exercising and you are still unable to lose weight you need to double check the medications you are taking. Some antidepressants (and other drugs) have changed thin people into chubby people. If this has happened to you it may cause a vicious circle. You may no longer be chronically depressed but how happy are you about being overweight.
In some areas fresh fruit and vegetables are not readily available. But most of us do not have that problem. We have just developed the habit of enjoying the convenience of processed foods. While it is true that healthy foods are more expensive it is worth the cost in the long run. But so many of us have grown accustom to the culture of eating fried and other fattening foods.

There are people who have glandular conditions that may cause problems with weight loss. One example of this is low thyroid or high cortisone levels.

However, the professional medical staff at Weigh to Wellness do and they can help you if you are having any of these issues.
You may be surprised to learn that there are many bacteria in the human body. Many of the bacteria are in our intestines. These bacteria are referred to by some as “good bacteria” and they help with the digestion of food. Every person is different and therefore two people may eat the same amount of food and one gain weight and the other not.
If you take a group of people and they eat the same foods and do the same exercises for a period of time the weight changes may be different for each person. This happens because some people’s bodies absorb calories better, some people are more active when not exercising, and some people, by nature, have a higher metabolism than others.
