We all feel a little overweight sometimes

Weight is a sensitive topic for many people and it’s surrounded by uncertainty and many doubts. Are we the right weight? What is the right weight? Does it mean having the right BMI score or feeling happy and comfortable in your own skin? Some define being ‘overweight’ as being more than 5 kilos above your ideal body weight. A BMI score of over 30 indicates that you are obese. In both cases, you may want to do something about it.

Being overweight can lead to health problems. These problems can affect everyone in a different way. Whether you have serious health issues, you would like to be a little slimmer, or you’re struggling to shed those last few pounds, maintaining a healthy weight is something most of us strive for.

Achieving your ideal weight is within your reach if you take the right steps. Getting started and the last weeks are always the hardest. You too can do it. Read more here...
