Gas, cravings, and irritability can all come with weight loss.

Weight loss can do a lot of good for our bodies. Physically, it can help relieve stress on our organs and it can lessen our chances of developing health issues. Mentally and emotionally, it can improve our mood and confidence levels. But there are some things that happen with weight loss that could be viewed in a negative light while you are on your journey. While you may experience these bumps in the road, losing weight is a worthwhile pursuit, especially if it means improving your quality of life and overall health. Make sure you are fully prepared for all the aspects of weight loss by reading this guide from fitness writer and nutritionist SJ McShane and speak to your physician before making any major changes to your diet.
You Might Get Stretch Marks
While it doesn’t happen to everyone, stretch marks can be a common side effect of weight loss if a lot of weight was shed from the body. Additionally, losing weight doesn’t mean the cellulite you once had will go away. The appearance of cellulite on your body may improve if you go down a size or two but it won’t be eliminated from your skin completely. McShane recommends using organic coconut oil to help with stretch marks.
