 Allergies - Symptoms include bloating, water retention, sneezing, breathing difficulties, rashes, aching joints and headaches.
 Hormone Imbalance - Symptoms include mood swings, tenderness in the breast, periods off schedule, heavy bleeding during menstruation, fluid retention, migraines.
 Pregnancy - Weight gain is a perfectly natural and normal response to pregnancy.
 Bloating - When the body consumes too much salt (i.e. sodium) bloating may occur due to water retention which will show up as a temporary weight gain.
 Digestive Issues - When the digestive system is out of whack, the digestive process in turn, slow.  Symptoms include belching, bloating, tummy noises, acid reflux.
 Diabetes - Look for these symptoms of Diabetes Type II: excessive thirst, excessive urination (particularly at night), fatigue - at times extreme, intense hunger, vision problems (when eyes are effected), weight gain, weight loss, sores that fail to heal properly OR are slow in healing.
