What is the main reason for gaining and losing weight.. some people gain weight unnecessarily and some people lose weight unnecessarily. There are some people for whom nothing happens even if the person eats as much as he can. What is the reason for all this. can anyone explain the reason for this..

Metabolism. My metabolism used to suck, and I weighed almost 300. Now I'm just over 200 and I gain nothing no matter how badly I eat, although I do gain muscleweight when I try to. It all has to do with keeping active and working out.

the solution for that is to correct your eating habit particularly the food you eat. Feeding your body with right nutrition will correct your metabolism problem. i have learn this one and its very helpful. Knowing our body works: In your small intestine, There are fingerlike protrusions called VILLI. when the villi are damaged, your small intestine does not absorb nutrients. Your appetite increases. You crave fats & sugars because they are the easiest substance for your body to absorb. You become fatigued because your body is not getting the proper nutrition. Your body starts to think its starving. when your body thinks its starving its starts storing fat instead burning fat! HEAL YOUR VILLI.

Step 1 Once you reach target, add 250 calories a day to your existing daily calorie intake. This means if you’ve been having 1,250 calories each day, you should now have 1,500 calories a day. Step 2 After a week, weigh yourself on your usual scales. You’ll probably have lost a little more weight. If so, add another 250 calories to last week’s daily allowance. So, if you were having 1,500 calories a day, now have 1,750 calories daily. Step 3 After a week, weigh yourself again. If you’ve lost more weight, add an extra 250 calories to your daily intake, for example from 1,750 calories to 2,000 calories each day. Step 4 After a week, if your weight has stabilised that’s the amount of calories you need each day to keep your new slim shape. If you’ve gained a tiny amount, drop your daily calorie intake by 100 calories, for example, from 2,000 calories to 1,900 calories daily. After a week, weigh yourself again. If your weight has stayed the same, that’s the amount of calories you need each day for weight maintenance. If your weight has gone up or down, juggle your daily calorie intake by 50 calories a day until your weight eventually stabilises. Step 5 Weigh yourself once a week on your usual scales until you are confident that you’re maintaining your healthy weight.

I think the main reason is wrong intake of food and unhealthy lifestyle
