To avoid the scourge of obesity, implement the following steps to maintain a healthy weight:

Exercise regularly:

Most health experts recommend 30 minutes of exercise every day. Simple but effective activities are swimming, brisk walking and jogging.

Eat healthy foods:

Make sure you eat nutritious and low-calorie foods like whole grains, vegetables and fruits. Avoid foods with saturated fat, and consume alcohol, and sugary foods and drinks in moderation. You can consume your favorite foods once in a while but in moderate amounts.

Keep track of your weight:

Check your weight every week to see if your strategies are working and to detect weight gain. This will help you maintain an ideal weight over the long term.

Stay consistent:

You should stick to your weight-loss regimen during weekdays, weekends, holidays and vacations. This consistent approach will increase your chances of success.
