Reasons for Weight Gain in Women
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS is a condition that only women get as it affects the ovaries and seems to bo on the rise as at least 1 in every 15 women seem to be getting it. PCOS makes women more likely to put on weight, the best way to manage PCOS is to keep to a healthy weight as women who keep to a healthy tend to be symptom free.
PCOS occurs when an egg gets stuck in the ovary so instead of the egg maturing and being released it stays as a cyst and causes period disruption, it can also cause extra facial hair growth or thinning of your hair on your head and acne.
Your weight gain and other symptoms is believed to be caused by a build up of extra insulin being produced in your body which causes fat to be stored especially around your mid section, so the aim is simple – get yourself to a healthy weight. Read More
There are certain times in a womens life where you are more likely to put on weight than others and during pregnancy is one of them.
Why? Well most women during pregnancy lose control over normal eating patterns and tend to have fads and cravings and even want to eat things that they normally woundn’t even like and you tend to slow down more and be less active plus subconsciously you believe you are eating for 2 which seems to get drummed into you over the years, but in reality it is only in the third trimester that extra calories are required and that is only an extra 200 calories a day which would equate to 2 slices of bread with a thin coat of low fat spread.
Healthy eating while pregnant is as important as not over eating, if you are of a normal healthy weight then you should only gain around 25 – 35 lbs if you are over weight then gaining a little less would be better.
If excess weight is gained then it is best to lose it as soon as possible after the 6 week check up, if left longer than a year it gets harder to lose. Read More
Believe it or not but married women tend to be slightly bigger than their unmarried counterparts and married men tend to be slimmer until middle age if they are regular drinkers. One of the reasons for this is that once you have your man and have relaxed into your relationship looking after yourself tends to slow down plus you tend to start eating more with meals out accompanied with wine etc. plus you tend to cook bigger better meals than you probably would just for yourself and you tend to dish out the same size portions instead of keeping yourself on smaller portions as a women needs around 610 calories a day less than her male partner.

Emotional eating is what we do when we feel a bit down, angry or upset and we just eat to make ourselves feel better even though we are not actually hungry. The cause can be complex but we tend to feel better if we eat and it is usually the wrong type of foods that make us feel better like cakes, crisps, chocolate etc.
Here we need to learn a technique called mindful eating which is being used more and more in mainstream healthcare. Read More
Formulated by Dr Nigel Plummer PHD Skinny Sprinklescontains active ingredients in the quantities recommended by EFSA to aid weight reduction, increase alertness and energy. It is designed to boost the effectiveness of a healthy balanced calorie-controlled diet whilst encouraging slimmer’s to stick to a sensible diet and exercise regime.
How Does Skinny Sprinkles Make Me Feel full
Here’s our secret….Two of it’s active ingredients
Glucomannan: helps make you feel full. This clever ingredient absorbs up to 200 times its weight in water. When you drink your Skinny Sprinkles the Glucomannan ingredient reaches your stomach and swells on contact with the water in your tummy, giving you a feeling of fullness. Glucomannan has an extraordinary water holding capacity that forms into a gel like solution (this is why the drink needs to be taken within 5 minutes of mixing).The stomach reacts to this in the same way as food, which delays gastric emptying. Gastric emptying refers to the speed at which food and drink leaves the stomach. When taken, Skinny Sprinkles works by stimulating the hunger sensors in the stomach wall. These sensors send signals to the brain that tells us that our stomach is full.
The diagram below shows that 100% of food is retained in the stomach for 20 minutes after a meal compared to 5 minutes for a drink. After 85 minutes, 50% of the food is still in your stomach compared to less than 5% for a liquid.
This is why a glass of water will not make us feel satisfied in the same way a meal will. It is the delay in gastric emptying that makes you feel full, resulting in a reduced appetite.
Inulin: helps prevent the sugar rush and is a natural fibre that helps to moderate blood sugar levels in the body, and can help to avoid sugar rushes. It may also help reduce sugar cravings, a frequent source of calories.
As Inulin is not absorbed by the digestive tract it improves energy levels without increasing calorie intake. Inulin is a complex storage carbohydrate which means that its can extend energy gained from eating high carbohydrate food such as bread, potatoes and cereal products over a longer period time. This long term energy release delays hunger pangs and cravings and increases endurance for either normal active individuals or athletes.
This winning ingredient is also a natural source of prebiotics. These are non-digestible food components that stimulate the growth and/or activity of beneficial bacteria (probiotics) in the colon. Prebiotics have been shown to increase the absorption of calcium and may also have a favourable effect on the immune system.
