So you’ve gained some weight, and obviously you don’t really like it, unless you were really skinny. Well, it’s not your visual appearance that’s most affected by gain weight. Additional weight affects your whole body in different ways.
Some of them you might’ve already noticed, some are hidden somewhere deep within your body, but let us introduce you to some weird things associated with weight gain.
1. Food Tastes Bland
Yes, people often associate weight gain with loving food a little too much. What if we told you that weight gain could make food taste blander by up to 25 percent? According to a study, this sometimes occurs because weight gain leads to inflammation, which is responsible for the reduction of taste receptors.
2. Man Boobs
Man boobs, also sometimes referred to as “moobs,” may occur as a side effect of obesity in men. This is medically called gynecomastia and is actually caused by certain hormonal changes inside a man’s body. Gynecomastia is triggered by raised levels of estrogen, otherwise known as the “female hormone.”
Among other weird things associated with weight gain, you might experience migraines. Once again, the inflammatory conditions within your body triggered by added weight seriously affect the probability of migraines.
4. Erectile Dysfunction
Have you had difficulties when it comes to your sex life? Have you started reading Viagra ads? This could be directly connected to your recent weight gain. Losing just a few pounds might get you back on track.
In most cases, snoring occurs due to a medical condition called sleep apnea. It can be triggered by weight gain and make you snore like a freight train during the night, driving everyone around you crazy.
