Plus Size Weight Gain And You…

There is little doubt as to why extra pounds pile up when you take in more calories than you burn. But what if you gain weight even after pursuing a healthy, active lifestyle? Either way, weight gain is frustrating, especially when you are really clueless about the needle on the weighing scale that keeps tilting towards the higher side.

But have you ever considered the often overlooked conditions of gaining weight?

Surprising Reasons for Weight Gain…

  • Depression is a condition that leads to “emotional eating”.  If you are down with the blues, then make sure that you stay away from chocolates and comfort foods as they can calm your soul, but expand your waistline.

  • Quite contrary to the notion, all fats are not bad for you. Fatty acids, present in many fish or flax seed oil can control unhealthy food cravings.

  • The foods that contain fiber give you a feeling of fullness. It helps you eat less. So taking less fibrous foods can be a good reason for weight gain.

  • Are you sure that you are eating enough to control weight? You should know that if you don’t consume sufficient food, your metabolism is likely to slow down and thus, your body begins to store fat.

  • Don’t get seduced by “low fat foods”, many of them contain as many calories as normal foodstuffs.



WebMD has also sorted many unanticipated causes of weight loss. These include: “

  • Lack of sleep
  • Stress
  • Medications
  • Menopause
  • Medical conditions.”

Things are different, of course, if you are pregnant.

Weight Gain and Plus Size Pregnancy
Many full sized women do not gain weight during the gestation period. Actually, many average sized women gain weight to have fat reserves for energy for the period of labor and nursing. Since large women already have these reserves, they usually don’t gain much weight. However, as you know, exception always proves the rule. So during your pregnancy, exercise reasonably, eat properly and consult your doctor to know whether your weight pattern is okay or not.

Nevertheless, slowing down weight gain is easy, and it can be done in a few easy steps…
