Losing even modest amounts of weight (5-10% of body weight) offers advantages in regard to health. 

It serves to:

  • Lower the risk of cancer

  • Choose healthy foods like grams, beans, fish, low fat dairy products and lean meats
  • Eat a variety of healthy foods to avoid diet boredom
  • 45-65 % of total daily calories should come from high fiber food sources like whole grains, bran, rice, oats etc..
  • Cut back on sweets, table sugar and other sweeteners
  • Limit intake of fruit juices( whole fruit is more nutritious)
  •  Reduce fat
  • Watch portion sizes: especially when eating out as many restaurants serve oversized portions
  • Cut down on sugary aerated drinks that are filled with large amount of worthless calories
  • Role Of Physical Activity
  • Engage in at least 30 mins of moderate intensity physical activity (like brisk walking) on most, preferably all days of the week
  • Take a walk instead of watching TV
  • Eat meals and snacks at a table & not in front of the TV or computer
  • Take simple measures like: use stairs instead of lift. Park car further away from the workplace and walk remainder distance
