Not happy with the number on your scale? There could be an explanation.
Here are some reasons why your scale says you’ve gained weight:
1. You are constipated
If you don’t go daily, excess stored waste can cause the scale to slowly climb. Increase your daily fiber intake to a minimum of 25 grams & include a daily probiotic to beat constipation.

2. You are retaining water
A high-sodium diet or a lack of fluid intake can cause your body to hold onto excess water. Limit sodium to less than 2,300 mg per day & aim for a minimum of 8 glasses of water daily.
3. You are building muscle
If you are losing inches, but the scale won’t budge, this could be a sign you are gaining muscle while losing body fat. Focus on measurements such as waist circumference over body weight to track health improvements.
