Are you obese? Cehck your body mass index. I am a lean person. People (mainly obese) envy up on me and ask how i remain thin. I am thin by nature. Even if I eat heavily, I tend not to becoem obese. Obese people need to make life change. What do you do?

I know that it is hard to loose weight and eat healthy, but there is so much information out there that obese people should think about their health. I've seen many shows where obese people loose the weight when they are taught how to change their eating and exercise habits. I am not thin by any means, but when I check my bmi i am in the normal range and I feel that I could stand to loose 10 pounds. I am always thinking about the weight of my daughter and she is only 6. I am trying to get her into the habit of eating heathy and exercising. If we start education our children about health, hopefully the next generation won't have as many unhealthy people.

Don't eat bread, potatoes or refined sugars. It's really that simple.

I'm a little slim . And I think people should pay attention to their diet carefully. No matter what you are fat or not , I think health is the most important.

I it's hasn't been to easy for me in the past 2 years since I had my daughter. I thinks it's because I'm older and a stay at home Mom. I'm not as active as I use to be and I spend to much tme on the computer. I think people just need to make healthy choices but when they do reach a certain age in life they need to put a little more effort to keeping the weight off.

I used to be like that. Eat anything i want to and not gain weight. Its abut how fast your metabolisim. Once i had children it changed. Now even though im far more active and eat much better. I keep weight on alot easier. This is typical of a woman after she has kids.

Luckily I'm not and I'm hoping that I won't be..try to have a lot of sleep, don't be depressed or stress out coz those are just some things that will lead you to it.. Actually if you move more and have enough energy plus you have a high metabolism, I don't think you could become obese..

We try to eat very healthy and work out on a regular basis. I count a few hours of housework or yardwork as a work out too. Drink lots of water and keep your sugar intake in check.
