Gaining weight seems to happen stealthily, and there are so many factors that could cause weight gain. From my point of view, I came up with two main reasons that I think we need to be aware of in order to avoid gaining weight, and the two reasons are: depression and PMS (premenstrual syndrome).
Let’s first talk about Depression. It seems that gaining weight has nothing to do with depression, but a study published in the American Journal of Public Health revealed that people who are always sad and lonely tend to gain weight more quickly compared with people who are less sad and lonely. This study totally applies to me. When we under depression, we tend to eat more high-calorie food instead of healthy food.
PMS, premenstrual syndrome, is a really personal topic for all girls and women. It influences a woman’s emotions and behaviors. This is a very common condition that almost affects 85% of the women. So we need to be very careful when dealing with PMS.
There must be lots of other reasons that could cause weight gain, but PMS and depression are probably the most two common factors that cause weight gain.
