Obesity and health are closely related. In fact, many health problems are caused by obesity. However, being underweight is not healthy either. Keeping a normal body weight is the way to good health.
If you are not sure what your ideal weight range is, use the body mass index calculator. If you find that you are outside the normal ranges, do not feel disappointed. Through perseverance, you can eventually achieve a healthy weight.
Overeating and lack of proper exercise cause the body to store the excess calories as fat. Checking the caloric values of different kinds of foods and comparing them with the energy consumption in various types of physical activities can help you choose the right food and exercises.
