Why Am I Gaining Weight Even Though I Eat Healthy and Exercise?

By Jennifer Jolan

You may be wondering "why am I gaining weight even though I eat healthy and exercise"? A lot of clients I work with think diet and exercise are the ONLY factors when it comes to weight loss.

Unfortunately, there are 7 major factors and diet and exercise are only 2 of them. And if you're eating right and exercising and can't lose weight, then those 2 aren't the most important factors on whether you lose weight, gain weight, or stay the same.

Why Am I Gaining Weight?

If you don't think your diet or exercising is the problem, then here are a few factors you should look into to get your weight loss on track:

1. Are you taking medications?

If so, you're unintentionally messing up your hormones. Your hormones have a lot to say about how much you weigh. Birth control and cholesterol pills are the 2 major pills that really mess up weight loss... but other do to. I can't tell you to stop taking them, but if it's at all possible, phase off of them and stop using them completely or look for alternative natural remedies. Do a Google search if necessary.

A quick tip I can give you that comes from 1 of my weight loss ebooks... spin around like a child. This is strange, but it does help bring balance to your hormones by the way it stimulates your Endocrine System. Through that, it helps you to lose weight.

2. Are you getting enough sleep?

Stacks of studies show that extra sleep helps for weight loss. Of course, it doesn't tell you to sleep all day. To put it in simple terms... if you're overweight and getting only 6.5 hours of sleep... you'd be wise to find a way to bump that up to 7.5 hours of sleep. That added hour adds up to an extra night of sleep each week.

So whatever amount of sleep you're getting now, add an hour or so to it. Take a nap during the day if you can. Add an hour or 30 minutes at night. Whatever. Just sleep more and the weight will more than likely start to come off.

One final tip... if you don't get enough "good sleep" at night, try taking the supplement ZMA. It doesn't help you to fall asleep, but it's great for giving you a nice, deep, refreshing sleep when you are sleeping. It's cheap and worth every penny.

So if you eat healthy and exercise, yet you're gaining weight instead of losing it, consider these 2 factors as possible problems. If you do, you'll stop wondering "why am i gaining weight" and start to reverse it and lose weight rather quickly.

If you're SICK and TIRED of getting the same old boring weight loss advice... you know, like "Eat more fruits and vegetables, drink 8 glasses of water, jog, and blah blah blah", then...
