On this Day — March 4 | World Obesity Day

Every year on March 4th, World Obesity Day is commemorated to raise awareness about the problem of obesity and how it may be addressed. The day also raises awareness of the stigma associated with obesity and attempts to foster an atmosphere in which obesity is prioritised as a public health concern. The World Obesity Federation commemorates the day. The Federation’s goal is to create an environment where obesity may be discussed without stigma and where the adverse consequences on one’s health are given more attention.

Obesity is defined by the World Health Organization as “abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that poses a health concern.” The disorder can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and a variety of other illnesses. So, we have mentioned below the top five tips following which you can maintain a balanced diet and avoid/cure obesity.

Top 5 tips to maintain a balanced weight

1) Track everything you eat

It’s hard to lose weight if you don’t know what’s working for you and what isn’t. Tracking your food intake—how much you eat, how much you exercise, etc.—is one of the most valuable tools in your weight-loss arsenal. Plus, it gives you a sense of control and accountability that can inspire lasting change. It might seem like a lot of work at first, but there are tons of great tools out there that make it easy to track everything.

2) Do the same with your exercise routine

One of the easiest ways to lose weight is to exercise, but we often make it more complicated than it needs to be. Simply walk for a few minutes every day, and work your way up from there. You can add jogging or running into your routine, followed by weight training and light cardio. Mix up your exercise routine with some swimming in a pool, on an elliptical machine or doing water aerobics. If you’re not much of an athlete and would rather relax as you get in shape, then try yoga and pilates; they will also provide additional benefits to your body and mind by enhancing flexibility and balance while burning calories.

3) Get enough sleep

According to a 2015 study from The Lancet, poor sleep may contribute to obesity in some people. Researchers say that there is a significant association between short sleep duration and weight gain. And it’s not just that people with insomnia or other sleep disorders are more likely to be overweight; researchers have also found that those who typically get less than six hours of nightly shut-eye tend to weigh more than they would otherwise. Practice good sleep hygiene by keeping your bedroom cool, dark and quiet—and set your alarm early enough so you have time for a quick morning walk before work.

4) Maintain a positive outlook

Nothing will help you maintain a healthy weight more than having a positive attitude. If you approach your efforts with confidence and positivity, it will help to support your work at losing weight and staying fit. Making it your top priority to maintain a healthy attitude is one of the best things you can do for yourself on your journey toward physical fitness. Maintaining a positive attitude will also make it easier for you to seek support from others.  whether that means turning to friends or professionals for advice or searching online for inspiration and motivation. Set realistic goals: While many people hope to lose as much weight as possible in as little time as possible, it’s important not to set unrealistic goals.

5) Keep track of your progress

One of your greatest assets in maintaining a healthy weight is self-awareness. If you don’t know what you’re eating, how much you’re exercising, and whether or not you’re taking on too much stress, it can be hard to control your weight.
