How does weight gain take place?
Weight gain is the result of an imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure. When we consume food, they are transformed by our body into energy, in order to use them to perform the primary functions (breathing, heartbeat, temperature regulation ...) and to move. When the energy intake exceeds the energy expenditure, the body begins to transform this excess into fat and to store it in different places.
It is therefore important to ensure regular physical activity to burn these calories and ensure adequate energy intake by controlling the intake of calories and especially sugar.
Indeed, the latter, when added to food, increases their caloric content and promotes the storage of fat causing unnecessary kilos. In addition, by consuming large quantities, several diseases are likely to occur, such as metabolic disorders, headaches, depression, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and breast cancer.
