    Good nutrition is an important thing for everyone for our survival, growth, mental development, health etc. In the case of a small baby, milk from the mother is the only nutrition that they can take and live. As their digestion system and all other parts of the body are not completely developed when they come out of the mother’s womb they can only digest the milk from the mother but most of the modern mothers hesitate to breast feeding of their child. This situation is most prevalent in the western countries.  There are so many different reasons for this situation but this affects the child health very much. One of the major reasons is due to unawareness among the people and thinks their breasts may become distorted when they give the milk.

    By Health Blog on July 23, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    A simple way to know if the weight is within normal levels is to find the BMI for short or BMI. To find the VMI divide our body weight (in kilograms) by height us (in meters) squared. For example:

    if the weight of an adult male is 75 kg and height 1.80 meters, the BMI is 75 / 1802 = 23.14.

    The burden on our index BMI assessed as follows:

    BMI Assessment

    Weight less than 20 less than normal
    20 to 25 Normal
    25 to 30 overweight
    30 to 40 obese
    Over 40 Overly obese

    To have meaningful indications of the scale should be weighed every five days and preferably at the same time of day. As mentioned above the daily weighing may lead to wrong conclusions.

    How to stabilize our body weight ?

    The best way to maintain stable body weight is to us a balance between action hiring with food and energy consumed by the various physical activities. When you spend periods of intense physical activity is logical that we need more calories, and when we follow a sedentary life should be reduced accordingly and the action taken by the food.

    An important factor other than the correct calorie intake is to be a proper balance in nutrients. The foods we consume should contain all three types of nutrients ie carbohydrates, lipids and proteins, while it should be rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements. We should mention here that the vitamins minerals and trace elements do not contain energy, but it is essential to the body, and without them can not be carried out many vital functions of the body.

    The winter slowly – slowly away, leaving some not so pleasant unnecessary pounds. So along with the spring starts and the stress of dieting and weight loss. Whether it is changes in the healthy body weight and how we can keep our weight stable? These questions will try to answer in this article.

    Small variations are normal weight

    When the changes in weight of about 1-2 kg are considered perfectly normal, even when within a week or even one day, as our weight is directly influenced by what we eat or drink before being weighed. For example if you drink two glasses of water and weighed immediately after the balance will show ½ kilo heavier.

    Changes in weight were observed through the years, but at different stages of life a person is perfectly normal but were enough to move certainly reasonable.

    When there is a problem

    The continuous and large fluctuations in weight, have usually resulted in the individual leads to increased body weight but also very high percentage of body fat percentage and reduced muscle mass. This has the effect to occur then even greater increase in body weight as a result of loss of muscle tissue, the basic metabolism of the individual, ie the energy consumed by the body for basic functions, is reduced. It’s much better a slightly overweight person is overweight must constantly fluctuates in weight.

    Apart from the final increase in body weight, constant changes have serious psychological consequences as the person enters into a vicious cycle of continued loss and recovery of weight, thus occupied by feelings of frustration and futility. The sense of constant deprivation, with the balance but ultimately shows more pounds is typical. It is the time to understand that doing something wrong and should radically change the way we treat our food.
