    Tips to reduce your weight to reach your BMI

    If you are overweight, losing weight will give you more energy and help you reduce your risk for critical diseases including obesity, heart disease, and Type 2 diabetes. There are several ways to lose weight. You can start by making small changes to your diet and consulting an expert.


    1. Try to get active for at least 150 minutes a week.
    2. Focus and decide to lose at least 1-2 lbs or 0.5 to 1 kg, per week.
    3. Read food labels before buying any food product. For instance, products with a green colour code are healthier than red or amber coloured.
    4. Swap sugary drinks for water. If the water is too bland for you, you can add slices of lemon for flavour.
    5. Cut down on foods with high sugar and fat content. Instead, swap it with whole grains.
    6. Create a weight loss plan with an expert.
    7. Move more and exercise. You can also start strength training to lose weight and build muscles.


    1. Do not lose weight abruptly with crash diets.
    2. Do not binge on junk. If you feel hungry, switch to healthier alternatives.
    3. Do not skip your meals as you will end up snacking more due to hunger.
    4. Do not finish your plate if you are full. You can eat the leftover food the next day.
