“I have been overweight as long as I can remember. But now I am worried about my health. What can I do?”
There are several stages of being overweight and each stage means different levels of actions should be taken. This would be dependant on your BMI – Body Mass Index. If you BMI is slight above average, the first and most basic steps would be to eat healthily and try to include some exercise.
If you feel you need to lose more than a couple of kilos, you might want to consult your doctor who might be able to recommend more drastic treatment such as medication, gastric banding or liposuction!
