Health Tip: Why Am I Gaining Weight?

(HealthDay News) -- Whether you gain weight depends on more than just the foods you eat, and how often.

The Weight-loss Information Network says other factors that can influence weight gain include:

  • Having family members who are obese.
  • Whether you drive more than you walk.
  • Whether you dine out more than you cook at home.
  • Getting insufficient sleep.
  • Taking certain medications that can increase hunger or affect how well you burn calories.
