General First Aid Information



Obesity and Weight Gain


Tips for preventing weight gain:

Avoid foods that are high in fat and sugar.
Reduce how much alcohol you drink.
Avoid stress, frustration, and boredom.
If you are depressed, seek medical treatment.

Avoid a sedentary lifestyle by increasing your activity level:

Perform aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 3 times a week .
Increase physical activity by walking rather than driving.
Climb stairs rather than using an elevator or escalator.
Always talk to your health care provider before starting an exercise program.

For additional help in losing weight:

Join a support group. Many people find it easier to follow a diet and exercise program if they join a group of people with similar problems.
Be sure to set realistic goals for weight loss. A loss of 1 to 2.5 pounds a week may seem slow, but losing weight too fast often does not work. Weight lost quickly usually comes back quickly.
