So, how do you know you are gaining weight? Most people may not have the habit of weighing themselves regularly, so we thought we’d come up with a list of ways to know you’re gaining weight… especially when you’re not realizing it! Are these telltale signs creeping up on you? If they are, perhaps it’s time to do something about those newly found chubs!
Your skin tight jeans and clothes don’t fit right anymore.
Skin tight clothes are pretty much one of the best ways to tell if you’ve packed on a few extra pounds or have begun gaining weight not because we always remember when we look good in that ONE super tight outfit and get disappointed when we don’t anymore.
You avoid taking photos because you don’t like the way you look.
Low self-esteem, apart from actual physical problems, is probably the worst side effect of weight gain. If you’re avoiding taking any self-portraits or group photos, you’re probably not that comfortable with your appearance and feeling lousy about the way you look.
Stomach always seems to stick out now.
What happens to everyone after a buffet? Our stomach bulges out. Even if you’re not actually fat, as soon as you over-consume and binge for just one meal, your stomach is likely to stick out from being expanded more than it is used to and meant to. It’s okay to have a bulging stomach after the occasional heavy meal, but if it is constantly hanging out and you find yourself having to consciously contract the muscle to keep it in, you have a problem…
You are bloated all the time.
Bad eating habits have a strong association with weight gain. And getting bloated is a direct effect from bad eating habits and poor lifestyle choices. When you keep stuffing your face with food, especially at a quantity much higher than your required amount, you’ll feel bloated.
Your energy level has hit an all-time low.
Eating food gives you energy. But eating too much food at one go doesn’t give you an outburst of energy, in fact, it might do the very opposite – overeating can make you feel tired and needlessly lethargic. Influx of food overwhelms your body. The influx of food forces it to work extra to digest it, that it goes into a sluggish mode. This happens frequently when you consume a high amount of carbohydrates. Overweight people feel tired all the time because their body is not in an ideal physical condition and their diets are poor.
Round is now the shape of your face.
Apart from our stomachs, the next most common place for fats to appear when we gain weight would probably be our faces. If your jawline starts getting less prominent and more round, it can only mean one thing.
Hunger pangs & sugar cravings hit you more than just a few times a day.
Meals which has adequate and timely portion is nutritionally beneficial. When you don’t eat at the right timings, or eat the right amount of fibers, grains & protein, you can gain weight easily. If you’re always eating and yet always hungry, you’re not eating the right food. When we eat junk food, our stomach fills up temporarily but it doesn’t get the required nutrients, so we feel hungry again too soon after. The best way to avoid this is to not binge eat and always regulate your timings for meals.
