A healthy diet and active lifestyle can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight.
If you are overweight or obese you may have a higher risk of developing health problems such as:
High blood pressure
Problems affecting your mobility
It is best to lose weight slowly and steadily which you can do by following a healthy diet and becoming more active.
You could aim to do 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week. If you are not very active, start slowly and build up. Exercise can include any activity you enjoy such as:
Fast walking or jogging, try walking instead of using the car or get off the bus one stop earlier
Badminton or tennis
Use stairs instead of lifts
