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.
Your Feet May Shrink
While it may be obvious that some or all of your clothes may be too big once you start losing weight, what most people aren’t prepared for is losing weight in other parts of their bodies – like their feet! Your feet can actually go down a shoe size when you experience a significantly large amount of weight loss. McShane says that this is because when losing weight your fat is being shed all over your body – and that includes surprising areas like your hands and feet.
