We all know the importance of maintaining a healthy weight, so we try to lose weight. But sometimes achieving this goal is not so easy. Even if you eliminate unhealthy foods from your diet and start exercising, those extra pounds may not go away. One of the main reasons can be the digestive system.
Digestive problems and weight gain
Digestive problems such as slow bowel movements, indigestion, and constipation are among the main causes of weight gain because they allow fat and toxins to accumulate in the body.
Bowel movements should occur an hour or two after eating, or even once or twice a day. Slow bowel movements can be caused by certain medications, dehydration, lack of fiber, or lack of good gut flora.
In addition, constipation makes it difficult to empty the bowels, which leads to thick stools. This disorder can be the result of a lack of fiber, certain medications, irritable bowel syndrome, overuse of laxatives, delayed bowel movements, dehydration, or colon disorders.
Finally, indigestion, also known as dyspepsia, is a disorder characterized by pain and discomfort in the stomach due to difficulty in digesting food. It can be caused by side effects of certain medications, acid reflux disease, peptic ulcers, abnormalities of the pancreas or bile ducts, and more.
