GAINING WEIGHT post your teenage ???


“I use to be thin when I was in school and college, I do not know how I put on so much of weight suddenly” or “I eat my normal diet but suddenly I have developed a paunch” Do you remember hearing this from your friends or family. There are chances that you may have experienced these changes in your body once you reached your 30’s. Research indicates that men and women gain weight after they are married, have kids and are settled in their jobs.

Let’s understand the common reason for weight gain after reaching 30.

Reason 1: Erratic eating habit

Most individuals get ambitious of moving up the corporate ladder as they reach their mid life and hence fail to pay attention to their eating habits. They skip meals to complete the projects; binge on junk foods regularly. Eating out at official meetings and seminars seem unavoidable. The erratic eating patterns do not suit the sedentary lifestyle which results in the increase in waist line.

Reason 2: Ignorance about basic nutrition

Though the modern day individuals are getting savvy about what to eat and what to avoid, there is a huge ignorance in their understanding between the lines. Having misinformation about various foods and their nutritional values, leads to spending money on various health products that do no good for the body. Following fad diets that promise to help you to lose weight easily, eventually leads to weight gain.

Reason 3: Decrease in physical activity

Most men and women find themselves caught up in the hectic schedule of work and family. They are always juggling to find time for themselves hence scheduling a specific time to exercise is generally not in their daily schedule. Though individuals in their mid life are busy but their physical activity in comparison to their early life drastically decreases which is a major cause for weight gain. Studies suggest that a decrease in the physical activity is the primary reason for the increase in fat mass with age.

Reason 4: Poor sleeping habits

A person in their mid life gets independent. His schedules generally include late working hours, late parties, all this leads to delay in the usual sleeping time. Being awake till late at night leads to late night bingeing which in turn leads to weight gain. Sleep deprivation leads to poor energy management which in turn adds kilos. For instance if you are feeling sleepy at work, you are tempted to have a cup of tea or coffee for that instant energy later you may skip your exercise schedule because you of your hectic work schedule which leads to weight gain.

Reason 5: Stress

For many people in their 30’s it is a time to focus on career goals, financial goals, getting married, starting a family. Major life changes can be stressful. Studies suggest that there is a connection between stress and gaining weight. When an individual is stressed, the body releases a hormone called cortisol which contributes to weight gain. Additionally, people tend to eat more under stress. All this could combine to a drastic weight gain.

Reason 6: Metabolism

Metabolism is the rate at which the body burns calories. As an individual enters the 30’s the metabolism rate slows down. In simple words, an indiviudal burns fewer calories than they did in their younger age hence even if they continue with the same diet and exercise regime like they followed in their earlier years, they still tend to gain weight. In women changes in the hormones caused due to pregnancy and menopause also adds to kilos.

Reason 7: Addictions

Research indicates that most individuals start a new relationship with smoking, and drinking alcohol to manage stress or social pressure as they reach their 30’s. These addictions have their own set of combinations for instance tea and smoking, eating peanuts or other fried variety of food with alcohol. Once these habits set in, they add to the increasing waist line and destroy childhood ideologies and well crafted good habits.

The main problem with weight gain in middle age is more than a cosmetic issue, it is closely related with various health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and various cancers.

While it is hard to lose the weight that is gained in the middle years but it is definitely possible, however prevention is always better than cure.

Here’s what you can do to avoid weight gain in your mid life:

The simplest ways to avoid weight gain in the mid life is to avoid all of the above. The judicious mix of following a healthy eating pattern and adding physical activity to your daily regime can help you ward off the extra kilos gained in your mid life years.

So do not lose heart even if you gain weight ….. Losing weight is as easy as gaining weight!

Dear Girls ...

*Don't assume that guys won't care where you are, because we do.
It makes us feel secure to know that our girlfriends aren't off flirting with guys we've never heard of.

*Also, don't talk about your ex-boyfriends.
We never have, nor ever will respect or like them, nor do we want to hear about them.
When you do, you're asking your boyfriend to be jealous.
You're asking your boyfriend to lose trust.

*On that, don't hump everything that walks into the room.
We don't care if you talk to other guys.
We don't care if you're friends with other guys.
But when you're sitting next to us, and some random guy walks into the room and you jump up and tackle him, without even introducing us, yeah, it pisses us off.
It doesn't help if you sit there and talk to him for ten minutes without even acknowledging the fact that we're still there.

*Also, when we tell you you're pretty/ beautiful/ gorgeous/ cute/ stunning, we freaking mean it.
Don't tell us we're wrong.
We'll stop trying to convince you.
The sexiest thing about a girl is confidence.
Yeah, you can quote me.

*Don't be mad when we hold the door open.
Smile and say "thank you."
Let us pay for you.
Don't "feel bad."
We enjoy doing it.
It's expected.
Smile and say - everybody together now - "thank you."

*Kiss us when no one's watching.
If you kiss us when you know nobody's looking we'll be more impressed.

*You don't have to get dressed up for us.
If we're going out with you in the first place, you don't have to feel the need to wear the shortest skirt you have, put on every kind of makeup you own.
We like you for WHO you are and not WHAT you are.

*Don't flirt with guys when we're not around.
We'll find out. Trust us.
We have eyes everywhere.
And when we find out, we're pissed.
Not necessarily with the guys you flirted with, more-so with you.

*Don't take everything we say seriously.
Sarcasm is a beautiful thing. See the beauty in it.
Don't get angry easily.
Stop using magazines/media as your bible.

*Don't talk about how hot Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt is in front of us.
It's boring, and we don't care.
You have girlfriends for that.

No Second Chance

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let us down, probably will. 

You'll have your heart broken and you'll break others' hearts. 

You'll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you'll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you've never been hurt. 

Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. 

You just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone's hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts. 

Don't be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.
