First, Why Are you Overweight? What Causes You To Become Overweight?
You can become overweight for a variety of reasons. The most common causes are genetics, lack of activity, eating too much of the wrong foods, or a combination of these factors. It's rare but a medical problem, such as low thyroid, can cause you to become overweight. Your doctor can do an exam and some blood tests, if necessary, to rule out this type of problem.
If your parents are overweight, you run a higher risk becoming overweight. Although weight problems run in families, not all children with a family history of obesity will be overweight. Genetic factors do play a role in weight gain, but so do the learning of bad eating habits and the lack of family exercise of the parents and family as a whole.
What you eat and what you do, play an important role in determining what you weigh. Television, computer and video games contributes to inactivity. Inactivity leads to weight gain, limit TV to 2 hours a day. You gain weight because you eat more calories than your body uses up, the excess is stored as fat.
You can lose weight by yourself, on your own, by watching the foods you eat and walking daily.
It's that simple, so motivate yourself! You can do it!
Read food labels and write down all the calories you eat per day. If you eat about 1500-1800 calories per day and walk at least 30 minutes per day, you can and will lose weight.
You can make up your own menu and keep track of the food you eat. Some foods help you lose weight, while other foods make you gain weight.
