Health and Nutrition to maintain ideal weight

Posted on Updated on

Are you practising a healthy life style? “We are what we eat”.

This is a logical phrase that we often hear people describe. Many of us  neglect our health and do not consider  proper nutrition. I am not a Nutritionist  nor a Dietician but I am always concern about my diet especially after looking at  the statistics of world obesity which has increased three-fold according to World Health Organization (WHO).

I am writing this post not to be advisor on health and nutrition but to share some health info and tips which has become an important part of my life. Do you know how much you should weigh? Well, take a look at  the Body Mass Index calculator (BMI) and check  the data best described as your BMI. The ideal weight for a person should not be more than 30 kg/m2  (  total weight over  height in meters squared) . If you get more than 30 falls under obesity.

Are we taking the appropriate amount of calorie every day? If you are a women you require 2000 calories a day. A man should take 2500 amount of calories per day. In order to manage your weight you should subtract 500 calories from your diet and increase your activities to lose weight. Always remember if you want to be successful you must plan for  success. What little things are you able to do now that you weren’t before  when you become obese?

In my next post I will share some health tips to maintain the ideal weight . Meanwhile let’s take a bite on my Pineapple Resipe a nutritious fruit salad.
