Losing Weight and Maintianing Your Ideal Weight

Better eating habits, and increased physical activity and creating the right mindset will help you reach your weight loss goals and maintain your ideal weight. Your goal of losing a few pounds is realistic. If you apply yourself to slowly changing your mindset, then your exercise and your eating habits, and other less than healthy lifestyle habits, you can transform how you live each day and sustain healthier habits.

Keep in mind that body mass index or body fat percentage are better indicators of your health than weight. For optimum health, your BMI should be between 18.5 and 25. Your body fat percentage should be between 18% abd 23%.

Scientific data now shows that a sedentary lifestyle increases your risk of many medical conditions and shortens life MORE than being overweight (BMI > 25 or body fat > 23%).
