There are many potential reasons for weight gain that may not always be related to the simple idea of “moving more and eating less.” Other potential reasons you may be experiencing weight gain could be from a hormonal issue, a digestive issue, or difficulty in your body’s detoxification system.
For example, balancing hormones that control blood sugar is essential for some in losing weight and maintaining weight loss. For those with digestive issues, the body’s struggle to absorb and digest some nutrients may lead to food cravings and overeating. Another issue can be yeast overgrowth in the digestive tract which may lead to overeating carbohydrates and sweets, resulting in weight gain. And finally, people who have chemical toxicity due to issues with detoxification may experience bloating and fluid retention that can be mistaken for fat.
