There are several strategies to lose weight, ranging from making little modifications to what you eat and drink to seeking further help.

If you are overweight, decreasing weight will provide you with more energy and assist to lower your risk of obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.

Lose weight by doing the following:
You don’t have to do everything at once; try one item at a time to see what works best for you.

DO’S

  • Get 150 minutes of physical activity every week – this can be divided into shorter sessions.
  • Aim for your 5 A Day – 80g of fresh, canned, or frozen fruit or vegetables equals 1 serving.
  • Aim to lose 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kilogramme) every week.
  • Replace sugary drinks with water; if you don’t like the flavour, add lemon or lime slices for flavour.
  • Reduce your intake of foods heavy in sugar and fat – start small.

DONT’S

  • Diets should not be used to reduce weight quickly.
  • Do not have unhealthy foods on hand; popcorn, fruit, and rice cakes are healthier options.
  • If you skip meals, you may find yourself munching more because you are hungry.
  • If you’re full, don’t finish your dish; you may keep leftovers for the next day.
