Weight gain is a dilemma for most women at some point in their lives. This struggle can be quite challenging, especially when a woman turns to the man in her life for advice. Research has shown that there are vast differences in weight gain between women and men, with women affected by factors that men cannot relate with. Aside from lifestyle habits, factors affecting a woman's body include:

Menopause

Before a woman's menstrual period completely ends, as the body changes, weight gain is common. Due to intense hormonal fluctuations sometimes, menopausal weight gain can be difficult to avoid and challenging to deal with on your own.

Illness or disease

In instances where the body is not operating optimally, affected by an illness or disease, extra weight may settle. Women with ovarian cysts, for instance, may experience significant weight gain in a short timeframe, something that should prompt a call to the gynecologist.

Living with more pounds on your body than what is within an ideal range not only impacts how you feel about yourself, it can also get in the way of your healthiest life. Experts report that even a 10 percent loss in body weight prompts a number of health benefits, including but certainly not limited to:
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Lowered cholesterol
  • Lowered blood sugar
  • Decreased risk of heart disease
  • Decreased risk of diabetes, or the elimination of Type II diabetes related to weight
There are so many options for weight loss assistance available today that it can be downright overwhelming. With a woman's weight impacted by so many complex factors, non-surgical medical assistance is highly beneficial.
