Tips for managing body weight

Maintaining optimum body weight is ideal but for those who are obese, losing even a relatively small amount of weight results in significant benefits. These health benefits persist if such modest weight loss is maintained.

Losing weight is easy. Keeping it off is the challenge. An effective weight management plan should consist of a healthy diet, physical activity and lifestyle changes.

Here are some simple tips that you could follow:

  • Remain physically active.
  • Discipline yourself on a well-balanced diet.
  • Eat small portions.

Monitor your weight by weighing yourself once a week and don’t be discouraged if you fail; the only way to succeed is to keep trying.

You could also seek support from friends, family and your health care provider. Your life, your future, YOUR HEALTH FIRST.
