Weight gain or loss is often the first noticeable difference’s discussed at the beginning of a conversation. We never think about how it will affect a person’s life.

Appearance criticism or complementary overload. Both have some drawbacks. Studies show that comments about appearances in the form of compliments can lead to higher resentment, such as external criticism. Giving the body’s horses և its correlation with beauty or appearance can be detrimental. To evaluate the “slimmer” look, we set the standard for beauty. These related remarks begin to affirm the person according to their self-esteem և value, causing weight bias և obesity stigma.

Health conditions that lead to weight loss. There are several health reasons that can be responsible for weight loss. Hyperthyroidism, IBD, COPD, hormonal imbalance, diabetes, surgery, medication are such cases that can be a trigger. It may not be easy for someone to identify their health problems.

Deliberate or unintentional weight loss. Sometimes weight loss can be accidental or unexplained. Stress, depression, muscle weakness, aging, dental problems, diarrhea are the most common causes.

It is often difficult to determine the cause of weight loss associated with it. When there is a significant weight loss in 3-6 months, it is usually called unexplained, which does not happen due to exercise, diet or lifestyle changes.

Eating Disorders or Eating Disorders Anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa are common eating disorders that are more likely to be related to behavior, weight, or appearance; The three main factors are behavior, obsession, and functionality. Eating disorders can lead to eating disorders. Eating disorders can cause serious nutritional deficiencies, electrolyte imbalances, and neurological problems.

Mindset or mindless eating. Following fashionable diets that are not in line with your health preferences, narrowing them down to just certain foods and eliminating others can lead to nutritional deficiencies, anemia, and more muscle loss than fat loss. Approved ideas, without proper knowledge of diet plans, can have long-term health effects. Overeating, without realizing that we have had enough or just cleaned the last piece of the plate or the appearance or taste of the food, can eventually lead to feelings of guilt, leading to a prolonged state of starvation. Reckless eating does not follow the signs of hunger, does not check the quality or quantity of what should be controlled while eating. Notice the Hara Hachi BU point, a Japanese term that says: “Eat until you are 80 percent full.” This approach works well for those with disabilities, as it prevents the discomfort of feeling bloated and the desire to cleanse.

Weight is not an accurate indicator of an individual’s health. Judging someone by their weight does not qualify their quality of life. Having a healthy weight, living an active physical life that is fun, checking your health, eating right when you are hungry, stopping satiety, and being in a happy zone all go a long way to making the most of your life. a lifestyle that is really worth it !!
