I eat less but I still put on Weight. Is it Possible?
It is not possible unless you suffer from some medical conditions such as hypothyroidism or you are on medicines such as steroids.
The food we eat gives us energy in calories, and energy used to do any work is counted in calories. Once you understand this, consider the following to be true in almost all conditions:
- Calories consumed = Calories used = No weight gain
- Calories consumed > Calories used = Weight gain
- Calories consumed < Calories used = Weight loss
You might feel you are eating less, but if you consume high calorie food, then you are likely gain weight. Most times, snacking in between food itself gives enough calories for the day.
