Top 10 Most Overlooked Reasons for Gaining Weight


3. You pay too much attention to calories and not enough to nutrients

You certainly do need to cut down on your calorie intake to lose weight. It’s important, though, to do so while exclusively eating nutritious food. Processed foods that are artificially brought under a calorie level won’t help you lose weight as much as natural foods that may be slightly more calorie rich. For instance, low-calorie crackers are usually around 120 calories each. A handful of unsalted walnuts, on the other hand, come with around 200 calories. Yet, they also offer natural, healthy fats and omega-3 fatty acids to help keep hunger away, in a way that crackers never manage.
