Secret Reasons You Gained Weight

You went to the gym

There are very few exceptions as to why you'd want to gain weight, but muscle is one of them. So, if you went to the gym and saw the scale tip a little, pat yourself on the back.

You didn't drink enough water

Adequate water intake is essential for all your body's functions, and the more you drink, the better your chances of staying thin.

You ate too many salty foods

French fries, potato chips, soy sauce—snacking on these foods makes your body hold on to excess water, which is why you feel a little bloated afterward.

You opted for a later bedtime

Something about your routine changed

Maybe you moved and have less stairs to climb in your house. Maybe it was your birthday and you had cake every day. Maybe you went on vacation. 

You overate

Whether you cooked at home or went out to eat, portion control can determine what happens with your waistline.

You scarfed down the sugar
