We all know the usual suspects for gaining weight or being obese; sedentary lifestyle, sugary drinks, fried foods, alcoholic drinks and even genetic predisposition. Likewise, we know too well measures to avert excess weight; exercise, low fat diet and overall lifestyle change.
In some cases, however, these measures don’t seem to work very well in real life. I mean; some people work out every day and cut back on junk food, but only seem to gain more weight. Others live a sedentary lifestyle and have never really been overweight—like a friend who eats sugar all day and never seems to gain a pound.
Are you among the people who regularly go to the gym, religiously follow a weight-loss diet or take weight loss pills yet the numbers on the scale keep creeping higher? Well, it’s time we delved a little deeper and unveiled the mystery. The mystery is not about the usual suspects; it’s about unthought-of causes. Finding that magic bullet will take away all the frustration but, as we shall see, requires a different approach.
