Are you sure you are overweight?
Being overweight is generally defined as exceeding the recommended weight for one's height and build. Excessive body weight though, is not as much of a problem as excessive body fat. Excessive body fat is a health problem, because it can lead to a number of serious disorders, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, and certain kinds of cancer.
Overeating, lack of exercise, heredity, glandular malfunctions, diabetes, hypoglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, emotional tension, and boredom can all contribute to excess weight.
Weight loss and weight management is the most easily understood principle of health. To sound practical, all that is necessary is to make sure the calories consumed are fewer than the calories spent on exercise and daily activities. Weight management and safe weight loss for a lifetime is far more complicated. Regaining lost weight does not simply reflect a lack of willpower, it is a common problem for many people, and many feel discouraged and develop a low self esteem as a result.
