Causes Of Weight Gain

Author : Wesley Mccormick

More Americans than ever are losing their battles with weight loss as the number of obese men and women in America has doubled in the past 30 years. Nearly 60% of Americans are overweight or obese today. If you are struggling to keep your stomach from overlapping your belt then here are a few pointers for you.

It is very easy this day and age to fall into a lot of habits that can contribute to your dreaded weight gain. Below are few of many reasons why so many Americans are becoming overweight:

. Consuming 300 more calories per day then 20 years ago.
. We are eating out a lot more than normal.
. Eating larger sized portions of their meals.
. Think that low fat foods are good and can eat as much as they want.
. And the big reason, not enough exercise. Many people that try to keep their weight down do so by only eating low fat foods. However, many low fat foods have more calories than the normal food. Be sure to read the labels on foods, although fat matters calories count.

Weight Gain Prevention

About a third of Americans do not get enough physical exercise. Instead we spend most of our time sitting at our computers, TV, driving instead of walking, taking the elevator instead of the stairs, or taking any other kind of short cut that allow us to work less. It is recommended that you get 30 minutes of moderate exercise per day such as a brisk walk or a bike ride. There are no quick fixes or magic methods. The idea of eating less and moving more should be the common approach. For more information about weight loss and weight loss products you can find the best weight loss supplements.
