Hydrate yourself:

Water plays an important role on your health. Drink enough water to keep yourself hydrated. It helps in maintaining your overall health as well. Doctors say that the average amount of water required for adult male is 3.2 liters and for adult female it is 2.7 liters.

Dehydration may lead to several health problems.

Approximately only 5% of adults are doing exercises more than 30 minutes. Doctors usually recommend everyone to do normal or stretching exercises for at least 30 minutes. You may choose any of the following exercises such as well:

  • Walking
  • Joking
  • Running
  • Cycling

  • Aerobics
  • Yoga

Choose the one which you enjoy the most. If you are not doing any exercises now, plan & set your goal today and do it regularly. By doing these exercises, you can burn unwanted or excess fat in your body which then makes you fit & healthy.

Required calories:

Average amount of calories required for healthy adult male to maintain his weight is 2,500 Kcal per day to maintain his weight. For adult women, it is around 2,000 Kcal per day. First calculate your body metabolic rate (BMR) to know the amount of calories required, and accordingly, plan your meal. If you eat excess calories than required, it may more often result in weight gain.

 Avoid unhealthy food and always eat more vegetables and fruits.
