I feel like I’m breathing and putting on weight, what can I do?

I feel like I’m breathing and putting on weight, what can I do? – Have you ever felt that everything you eat makes you bloated? Are you one of those people who is constantly on a diet but does not see results? I’ll tell you a secret: It’s not your fault. Today we are going to explain a series of reasons why you may not be losing weight as you want.

For many years the weight of people has been used as an indicator of their health, obesity is classified as a non-infectious pandemic according to the World Health Organization. However, there is a stigma about why people are overweight or obese.

Being overweight is indeed a cause of risk in many diseases, in addition to causing damage to the joints and limiting the life of some people. Losing weight is a decision that is often made by the individual due to the pressure of his environment, and if the result is that he does not achieve it, the problem is generally aggravated.

The reason you get fat is not just what you eat

In the last 20 years, we have seen how the culture of diets has evolved, we went from following the fashionable diet in a magazine to new concepts such as caloric deficit and non-normative bodies. This has made more nutritionists interested in providing content on the internet on the subject.

We already talked about more than one reason why you “breathe and get fat”, and we took into consideration factors such as:

  • polycystic ovary syndrome
  • insulin resistance
  • pre-diabetes
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • hormonal problems

And one that is rarely talked about, but of utmost importance: your genetics.

Did you know that your genetics determine which foods you tolerate best?

Well yes, it turns out that according to your genes certain foods harm your body. We are not only talking about people who are born with celiac disease or food intolerances such as lactose and fructose; if not how your metabolism processes daily consumption of foods such as carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.

Your body’s rejection of certain foods generates heaviness, swelling, and allergies, and puts your body in a state of stress that makes it difficult for you to lose fat. Remember that if your goal is to be healthier, your body must have a balance between mental and physical health.

If you are a person who has tried EVERYTHING to lose weight, you feel that no diet works for you, you exercise regularly and your health is in good condition, but your weight does not reflect it, we have a recommendation for you: The nutrigenetic test.

This analysis will allow you to know which foods you should consume to enjoy good health, lose fat and avoid eating things that cause intolerances and ailments. It is a once-in-a-lifetime exam because your genetics never change, and it will also allow you to have more control over your health, prevent diseases and improve your quality of life.

We invite you to learn more about this analysis here.
