Another method is keeping an eye on the waist circumference. Normally, for a woman it should not be greater than 88cm and for a man it should be 102cm.
  2. Always carrying too much weight can expose you to increased risk for heart diseases, certain cancers and diabetes. It is always considerable to make a few sacrifices and a continuous strive to keep our weight at an acceptable level.

If you want to lose weight .5 kg per week you need to reduce your intake by 2100 k j and just by increasing energy expenditure by 2100 k j each day. Although it is not wise always counting the kilojoules rather it does help to know the consumption and expenditure in normal life. Adopting certain good and positive habits would help to improve health conditions and we will know the real factors directly concerned with our weight gain and loss.

If you are not going to gym keep yourself active in other ways like jogging, dance classes and walking around your park. By adopting certain habits on your job or at home you can better adjust your weight level and keep your fitness up to the mark in routine life.
  5. Plan your meals ahead of time, proven it will help to manage weight problems and if you are taking junk food you should be more careful.
