One of the most obvious areas of health to notice is weight issues. Weight changes, whether gaining weight, losing weight, or problems maintaining your ideal weight, are a sign that one or more systems in your body are not functioning optimally.
Often, people will think it is simply because they are eating too much, as well as eating the wrong types of foods. Some people assume that aging is causing a slowing of the metabolic process in the body, causing them to gain unwanted pounds. Lack of exercise is also considered a common reason as to why weight gain is occurring. Although some of these mechanisms may be related to the cause, they are often not the entire picture.
