8 contributors to weight gain that might be news to you.

If racking up surplus weight was as simple overeating — losing that weight would be equally as straightforward. We all know that’s not the case.

It’s because there are other forces at play. Below are some culprits that may be helping to nudge your scale’s dial upwards.

1. Candida Overgrowth

A little candida — a yeast found in the body — is fine and normal. But, if it gets out of control, it can develop into a fungal infection that can spark some serious health issues. This, in turn, can inhibit your efforts to lose weight.

2. Chronic Toxicity

Half of all Americans persistently suffer a host of bothersome symptoms — like body aches, difficulty concentrating, tiredness, and unexplained weight gain — that aren’t necessarily directly tied to a medical condition. Yet their symptoms are real and these people continue to feel poorly. Toxicity could be at the heart of many of these types of complaints and detoxification might resolve them, especially the weight issues.

3. Thyroid Dysfunction

The thyroid secretes hormones that help maintain a healthy metabolism. If this gland isn’t in peak operating mode — perhaps due to something like candida — it can sabotage your health. The result may be flagging energy, joint discomfort, or hard-to-regulate weight.

4. Hunger Hormones

When it comes to weight gain, ghrelin, leptin, adiponectin, insulin, and cortisol are the primary hormones to consider. Because they influence things like satiety, appetite, energy balance, and fat storage, they can affect your success with permanent weight loss.

5. Insufficient Sleep

Studies indicate a negative correlation between sleep restriction and metabolism changes. It seems that less slumber time may increase your hunger and appetite — especially for foods high in calories and  carbohydrates.

6. Stress Side Effects

Managing stress — of the emotional as well as oxidative kinds — is crucial to any weight loss regimen. If not reined in, stress can kick off an inflammatory response and spur more fat storage. It can also wreak havoc on your hormones and sleep.

7. Brain-Induced Cravings

Contrary to popular belief, when a person wants a specific food (or beverage), it’s not a plain desire for that tasty delight. It’s usually a signal between your mind and body indicating that there’s some sort of deficiency — like an unmet nutritional need or an imbalance in biochemistry.

8. Suboptimal Diet & Eating Habits

What you eat and drink, when, how much, and so on can act as levers on your body and alter the course of your weight journey. Unsurprisingly, many people don’t consume the right foods in the right ways. Poor nutrition can thwart your hard work towards being a healthy weight.
