Gained a few pounds over the holidays .

It's ok .

Who cares if your figure has changed a little well , hate to break it to you , but excess weight doesn't just alter your pant size .

It does more to your body than you think .

And a lot of this damage can show up within just 90 days .

Take , for instance , one adult sense of taste .

This is one of the first things that happens to your body .

If you start indulging a little too often .

In fact , it can already start within the first month .

It may seem a tad contradictory .

Why would you eat more if you lose your sense of taste ?

Let me explain .

So this means that bite of chocolate you had a month ago may have sent you to sugar heaven for a moment .

But today you feel the need to consume the entire slab to experience that same rich taste .

And so the evil cycle of overeating begins two frequent migraines .

That's right .

Those mind numbing headaches that make everyday tasks almost impossible , can quickly start ruining your day as often as once a week .

Just note that obesity doesn't exactly cause migraines .

It's just one of the risk factors that make it more likely for them to her .

So , being overweight means you'll have a higher risk of suffering from chronic pains than someone with a healthier weight .

If you're prone to headaches , it might be worth swapping out the sugary soda for a glass of water during lunch and see what happens .

You might be surprised three higher bad cholesterol .

The word cholesterol has become almost synonymous with obesity and rapid weight gain , but it's not so black and white .

Your body actually needs cholesterol to build healthy cells .

It's just like most things in life .

Too much of it isn't a good thing .

This means that eating those delicious fatty foods on an all too regular basis leads to a up of fatty deposits in your blood vessels .

Your arteries then become blocked , preventing your heart from receiving enough oxygen .

It also causes a decrease in blood flow to the brain to put that in layman's terms , your risk of having a heart attack or stroke becomes dangerously higher .

I know that burger is tasty but is it really worth it for depression and anxiety ?

People have a 55% greater risk of developing depression and anxiety than those with a healthier BM I , that's your body mass index .

It basically measures how much body fat you have .

And what's really sad is that although men can also be affected , the psychological impact is more significant among women .

Why do you think that is , let me know down in the comments , I'd love to hear your thoughts on that anyway .

Again , we have a vicious cycle in this one too .

You feel down so you comfort eat , then you gain weight and you feel worse because of it and so on .

Five troubles getting pregnant and here's yet another problem women get to deal with because of weight gain .

Oh , and fellas , obesity isn't exactly good for the male reproductive organs .

Either six sore muscles becoming heavier can lead to a deficiency of vitamin D also known as the Sunshine vitamin .

Your body really needs it in order for your bones to absorb calcium and grow strong .

It also helps prevent autoimmune diseases and chronic pain .

Oh , and as a bonus , it fights depression too .

So , yeah , the D stands for , does it all not really .

I just made that up anyway , if your body doesn't have enough vitamin D , you can experience muscle pains all over .

Unfortunately , taking vitamin supplements and spending more time in the sun won't help you with this one .

Extra fatty tissue dilutes the vitamin .

So it's not absorbed by the body as it naturally would be .

So , no easy way out .

You have to lose weight to help your body absorb that much needed magic vitamin seven , poor quality sleep obesity can cause you to literally stop breathing while you sleep and multiple times throughout the night .

Now , that's scary .

This condition is known as sleep apnea and it happens when the upper airways get blocked during sleep , either causing reduced air flow or stopping it completely .

As for what can block it , that would be excess fat pushing on your windpipe .

Luckily , the brain wakes the body up if the airflow is cut off , but that means disrupted sleep throughout the night .

Your poor quality sleep can affect your partner's sleep quality too .

Thanks to your snoring .

Seems a bit unfair , don't you think eight frequent bathroom trips ?

You might want to start paying attention to ever increasing bathroom breaks as it could be a sign of kidney disease .

And yes , research shows that this can be connected to excess weight .
