5 Everyday Habits That Cause Weight Gain

Obesity and weight gain has become a common problem that many experts are calling an epidemic.Obesity is one of the biggest health concerns in communities across the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2011-2014 data, more than one-third (36.5%) of U.S. adults were obese.

* Oversleeping

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” This is not just a line in nursery rhymes. In fact, waking up early is good for your health and your weight.Sleeping too much can cause weight gain. A 2014 study published in PLOS ONE analyzed the data in the survey of a National Representative Sample of 24671 Adults (INPES Health Barometer) on the risks of sleeping too much.
* Skipping Breakfast

Breakfast is the first meal of the day and you must always have your breakfast before leaving the house. If you’re skipping breakfast, you may not be successful in reaching your weight loss goal.Skipping breakfast messes up your metabolism and your body’s fat-burning capability. When you eat a healthy breakfast, it increases your energy level that your body needs to active its functions and even stabilizes glucose levels.
* Eating Processed Food for Breakfast

While skipping breakfast can make you gain weight, eating the wrong breakfast can also be bad for your weight.An unhealthy breakfast can make you feel sluggish, cause you to gain weight and increase your risk of chronic disease.
* Not Enjoying Morning Sunlight

When you wake up in the morning, do not just laze around indoors. Go out and enjoy the sun. Not getting morning sunlight is bad for your weight loss effort.Sunlight helps speed up your metabolism rate. A 2014 study published in Diabetes found that ultraviolet (UV) radiation suppresses obesity and symptoms of metabolic syndrome, independently of vitamin D.

* Not Drinking Water
Before drinking your coffee or tea, you should drink a glass of water or lemon water first thing in the morning.Water intake helps maintain the right temperature and nutrient balance in your body and also aids digestion. Also, water quickly fills up the stomach, so there is less chance of overeating at breakfast.
