When you step on a scale, what you'd like to see most is the pointer on a number - any number - lower than you look in those short and staples outfit, right? Not exactly being light weight doesn't necessarily spell good health. In fact, being underweight can bring just as much trouble as being overweight. As you age, your metabolisms slow down. You're not as active as before, so what ever you eat, you don't bum as fast anymore. Therefore, the increase in weight, if you go to a burger joint and eat a cheese burger with salted fries that will easily be a thousand calories. If you exercise for 30 min at moderate intensity, you have born only 350 to 400 calories. The excess unfortunately stays in your body in the form of fats. In these simple examples, the equation is already lopsided! How do you balance the equation? The key is to determine your ideal weight, then make the necessary changes in your diet, exercise habit and life style to achieve it. These factors work hand in hand as you work towards having the body you want and keeping it that ways.....
