Scientifically it has been proved over and over again in the last bit of century that metabolism rate of a human being decreases post twenty three. So there is no running away now. It is true. You get fatter faster.
But going crazy over it is another story altogether.
I am going to chronicle my own side. I started to put on weight exactly when I turned twenty three (what can I say my body is punctual) and in no time I gained ten kgs. Yes you got it right. I went from 38 to 48 in a span of six months.
After that there was no going back, though many feel (or want me to feel) that I look better and more healthy post this sudden gain. But I stopped feeling fitter on the whole.
There is no gyaan on this. Yes when you go past the age of twenty your body needs exercise. Not to make you look better or flash that million dollar ramp style but for over all health.
Simple tips we can all follow:
- Stop drinking cold drinks. Canned juice is a part of this
- Light exercise everyday can help maintain weight. Also assist in overall sense of being healthy
- Drink lots and lots of water
- Always remember one whole fruit is equivalent to one meal. So an apple for lunch keeps the doctor and a complete food plate away
- Overeating is the cause of most fat generation. Food that is not thrown but taken in extra is also wasted
- Regularly keep a tab of your weight and ensure to centre around a target
Writer of this post has suddenly started hearing words like hypochrite, hypocrite and has decided to close this rather sensitive issue here. You get the gist right? Weight and watch 😀
What do you think about mid-twenty being the age of gaining weight? Did it happen to you? Or is it happening to you?

Hey! Richa! As we pass certain age, weight gets on us which is fine. Like the tips to shed extra calories and loove the sweet post. Let them cry hoarse and barking dogs never shake mountains. How do I forget Yoga? The best way to get rid of fat.
I am fighting the temptation of food…I am trying! I putting on..And u were 38 only? :O…48 at 23 is hell good!
I started gaining weight in my mid twenties, after I started my sedentary life in IT. SInce then it’s been a contant battle with horizontal increment!! 🙂
For me no physical activity leads to sudden weight gain…After marriage I had taken 6 months break and put on like anything… Now only after 2 years with regular dancing I am finally happy with my fitness! 😀
My weight didn’t hit until I was in my mid-thirties which was the same time I quit smoking. Still struggling with it. Working at home and on the computer most of the day has made it a challenge to get it off. My doctor did uncover that my thyroid was off which was not an issue before.
I am not into fad diets. You have to make a lifestyle change in order to lose the weight and maintain it. Daily walks on the treadmill and taking the dog for walks helps not only my activity level but makes me more effective at my job.
I didn’t start gaining weight (not counting baby weight gain) until my 40s. However, I have a lot of friends who started putting on weight in their late 20s-early 30s.
Weigh, wait , watch and then eat. Weight issues are difficult to battle and more difficult to win and lose kilos.Piling up kilos makes one lethargic and tired. Hope an anti-weight pill is found.
Weight issues started at 18 for me 😉 So you’re doing fine.
Aah! The Weighty issue!! I think I never thought about it even in my 30s! It is only since the last one year, that I am seriously concerned about it! I second Kalpana for an anti-weight pill. I need it!! 😐
You were just 38?!! I think 48 is okay then…:)
Weight issues..huh! It’s a mission I guess. Anti weight pill, yes right but I think we should get vaccinated against it..:D
Very helpful points! I liked what you said about overeating. Thanks for sharing 🙂
