Thyroid & Weight Gain – What’s the truth?
Thyroid, a butterfly-shaped gland, found on the lower front of the neck is often blamed for weight gain. This endocrine gland helps us stay warm & energetic and even regulates the functioning of heart, mind and muscles. An imbalance here, can cause, serious implications on the human body. Hypothyroidism is a condition when the thyroid is underactive. So, what causes the weight gain under this condition?
Well, it is not the fat accumulation that leads to weight gain. In fact, it is due to the presence of an excessive amount of salt & water in the body. Usually, 5-10 pounds of weight increase can be attributed to hypothyroidism. Once this condition is treated, one can expect to lose approximately 10% of the body weight.
Excessive calories and obesity – Is there a connection?
We often read and hear the word ‘calorie’ when we buy some food item from the market. So what exactly are these calories and are they related to obesity? Well, calorie is basically a unit to measure energy. In nutshell, calories are something without which we cannot survive. An adult requires anything around 1000 to 1400 calories in a day to fuel his/her body. Weight gain is obviously linked with calories, since if we increase the intake of calories beyond normal, we are sure to end up having contoured bellies.
Calories are just one reason that causes obesity. There are innumerable other factors which give rise to obesity. With the present changes in our lifestyles, the percentage of obese people has shot up considerably. Obesity also runs in family genes. Research has proven that you are 3 times more likely to be obese in case one of your parents is. Eating at irregular intervals, gobbling up junk fatty foods and skipping meals also contribute to weight gain in the long run. It is interesting to note that emotional factors such as stress and depression can also lead to obesity. Some of us like to gobble up food during high levels of anxiety. Further, drinking alcohol can shoot up calories, which ultimately causes obesity.
Obesity and weight gain are common problems that face the youth as well as the old with equal frequency. Starting from common disorders like hypertension, to grave illnesses like cardiac dysfunctions, obesity can cause it all! People do every possible thing to reduce their weight and look slim, trim and fit. Gymnasiums count good money and cosmetologists snare great consultation fees. But how effective are these ways after all? Possibly, nothing more than being temporary solutions! A better and permanent solution is in the lap of Mother Nature.
