Maintaining a Healthy Body Weight

With so many food loaded with carbohydrates and bad fats , ready-to-cook meals, processed snack food and sugary goodies available in every corner, no wonder you can see a lot of obese people in the U.S. I am getting there. In my almost three years here, my healthy appetite for unhealthy food has made me overweight by 30 pounds.

Being overweight makes one at a higher risk for developing heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and other more serious diseases. According to a research published at Vibrant Health, about two-thirds of Americans are overweight by BMI measurements (body mass index).

To have a healthier body, we need to have a diet rich in vegetables, whole grains and fruits, exercise, enough sleep, and a clean lifestyle (no to booze and smoking). For those with weight problems, a weight loss dietary supplement may be of help, too.

Hello MsRay, I know how you feel,I too am overweight.But since I changed my diet, I have lost some weight. I now eat mostly vegetables and some meat. I have cut carbohydrates out of my diet by 75% and it seems to be working. If you follow your post I'm sure you too, can lose weight.
Good luck and God bless.
