  • The sodium consumption is more than that of normal intake-

The diet based water retention won't be solved until the med is cut off.
  • Menstrual cycle-
    The menstrual cycle is one of the important cause of gaining weight. The hormonal change during the menstrual cycle can lead to fluid retention.  2- 8 pound of weight fluctuation occurs this time to the girls.
  • Constipation-
    Irregular lifestyle, lack of fluid intake, lack of fiber in the diet, disturb sleeping pattern can affect the digestive tract and it can lead to constipation. Excess toxic accumulation in the body can lead to severe weight gain. The irregular and bad lifestyle can cause excessive gain in weight at night.
  • Take Home Message:
