5 Reasons Why You May Be Underweight And What You Can Do To Gain Weight
If you are a woman who is tired of flipping through magazines to find articles only about weight loss and dieting, we understand you. There are many women who need to ‘put on weight’ as opposed to the common belief that women are always looking to find ways to lose weight. We take a look at some of the major factors that cause you to be thin and skinny and learn how to deal with them.
Factor#1: You are underweight because you don’t eat enough
Can you see yourself while you read this factor? Are you compromising on adequate diet because of a busy lifestyle? Don’t rely on soft drinks and snacks to subdue those hunger pangs. Why not have proper meals instead? Here’s a top tip. Don’t increase your intake of junk food or high fat foods. Instead, pick foods that are high energy and are packed with nutrients. Classic examples are avocado and nuts.
Factor #2: You have a job that is physically demanding
Does your job demand a lot of running around or a lot of physical activity? If it does, don’t you think it is common sense for you to increase your intake of food to replenish the spent energy? You can even increase the number of times you snack during the day. But make sure that you eat healthy snacks like fruits, yogurt, cereal, milkshakes or even liquid meal supplements.
Factor#3: You are exercising too much
We know that ‘staying fit’ is the mantra these days but are you pushing the boundaries a bit too much? If you’ve been hitting the gym regularly, you may have noticed that exercising and the thought of keeping fit can be very addictive. Many women exercise more thinking that it is good for the body. But that’s not true friends.
