7) The Importance Of Weight Loss And Weight Management

Walking should be a must do exercise for all people of all ages. The benefits can prevent anything from cancer to diabetes to depression, just to name a few. A walk after dinner may reduce your diabetes risk. Weight loss can also beat depression, and yes there is a link according to Dr. Michael Craig Miller, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He suggests to start small by walking 15 minutes a day.

You should invest in a pedometer and your goal should be 10000 steps a day which equals 5 miles. It's a small price to pay for your health, and can save you a gym membership. Future entries will tell you how to avoid the gym altogether.

The best nutrient for both weight loss and management is fiber. So here are some fiber rich foods. Here are either already mentioned or new high fiber foods. Knowledge is power and the more you know the better you can develop a plan that works for you.

Beer bellies are a myth since the calories come from the alcohol. Make no mistake, alcohol may contribute to the belly, but it's the caloric intake as a whole that gives the belly.

Get to know your BMI(Body Mass Index). Learn what your weight means and where you are. Obesity creates as many health problems as smoking.
