Eating and drinking should and will remain one of life’s great pleasures, which also involves getting to know new fodder and beverages on a regular basis. You are not confined to salad leaves and mineral water, and nothing is banned – provided the things that promote weight gain are kept
reasonably under control. The same is true of exercise/s, where a similarly exploratory attitude is highly recommended.
No prizes for guessing that I am not a fan of the ‘size zero cult’ which would have people walking around with spindly limbs on a body frame of skeletal proportions! This is as unhealthy as obesity – just the opposite extreme.
The best way to define your goal in weight terms is by using a metric ratio called the BODY MASS INDEX (B.M.I.) which relates our weight in kilograms (kg) to our height in metres (m). By performing this calculation every 3 months or so, you will be able to see whether your weight fits into the normal, healthy range.
