Weight is an important attribute of a person as it is a direct measure of fitness.Weight control means maintaining weight according to one’s height and age. Every age group and height has a particular weight limit that is considered healthy. Above this limit is considered overweight and below this limit is considered malnourished or underweight. Overweight is linked with heart diseases, cancer, diabetes etc.
Weight can be controlled by doing simple modifications in the diet and following a routine of the workout. Weight gain happens when the calorie intake exceeds calorie consumption. Cutting carbohydrates, fats, junk,sugars and replacing them with high protein, fibre rich diet is the key to weight control. It is recommended to have at least one serving of fresh and colourful fruits, vegetables per day. Moreover, doing 30 minutes of daily cardio activity like skipping, jogging, brisk walking and cycling aids in calorie burnout. Thus, get out of your comfort zone and take a step towards losing weight!
