So you've burnt the midnight oil in the hope to shed a couple of kilos and get in shape. You've also cut down on your junk-food intake and have been spending extra hours at the gym just to achieve your weight-loss goals. But, if despite all your efforts nothing is able to swing the weighing machine needle to the other side then you need to take a closer look at your house?

In all probability, you have already sat down and tried to figure out where you're going wrong. But we can assure you that this one new-found cause for weight-gain hasn't even struck you, yet. Majorly because no one really thought that it would matter. We are talking about the dust particles in your house.

Believe it or not ladies, but the dust is actually responsible for turning your weight-loss dreams into nightmares.

According to a study conducted by researchers at the American Chemical Society, small amounts of dust that accumulates in your house contains compounds of environmental pollutants and could be playing a role in the growth of fat cells in your body.

These compounds are called endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and can make your fat cells accumulate more fat by replicating your body's hormones.

When accumulated indoors in the form of dust, these EDCs are inhaled, ingested, and absorbed through the skin--adding to your weight-loss woes. In fact, these compounds also affect your metabolic health, making your life even tougher than it already is.

But now that you know the reason behind your inability to lose weight, we hope that you work on it and start by regularly dusting your house and keeping your dishes clean. Did we mention that all that moving around and cleaning will also burn a lot of calories? So, go for the kill, ladies.
