The number of obese people in the country is on an alarming increase, which hitherto, was unusual a decade ago. This phenomenon is seen more in urban areas, rather than in rural areas.

The most common cause for this is the changing food habits and lifestyle. These days, walking and cycling is a rare activity, compared to a decade ago. Elevators have reduced the exercise of climbing the stairs. Many modern, easy and convenient modes of transport have evolved in urban areas, like scooters, busses and cars, which curb physical activities like walking. The calories resulting in net saving of energy, thus pave the way for weight gain. This does not mean that modern facilities must not be made use of, but care should be taken in balancing the calory intake.

Following these tips would help you to avoid obesity by maintaining a balance between intake and expenditure.

While you are walking, walk briskly.
Use the staircase wherever possible instead of the lift.
If yours is a desk job, don't sit for long hours continuosly. Take a stroll at regular intervals.
Take only one or two bites of sweets, pizzas, burgers and all other fast foods.
Eat more rice, dal, vegetables and fresh fruits.
Always be active, involve in some houseold activity, which gives you physical exercise.
Constantly monitor your weight.
Dont practice diet restrictions yourself to avoid obesity. This could lead to underweight. Consult a dietician.
