Your genes, age, gender, lifestyle, family customs, culture, amount of sleep you get each night, and even where you live and work can all impact your weight. Nevertheless, maintaining a good diet and regular exercise can help keep your body as young as possible as you age.
You are not alone if you are having trouble losing extra weight or keeping it off. A healthy lifestyle is essential to improve your daily life, but with so many fad diets and workout regimens to attempt, it can be challenging to know how to become healthier.
If it feels like maintaining a healthy weight is the hardest part of weight change, that’s because it is: Most people cannot maintain a healthy weight for even one year after reaching it.
That is mostly because of how individual biology, behavior, and environment interact to make sticking to healthy living habits hard. Plus, resistance to flexible weight management tactics — like augmenting diet with natural supplements and forgiving yourself for slipping up — keeps people from using the best tools at their disposal.
Even though losing weight is never simple, it is always worthwhile. Your body will work better if you keep a healthy weight, reducing your risk of developing disease and pain in the future. Despite the eye-catching headlines on magazine covers and online advertisements, most quick weight-loss plans fail because they don’t enable you to keep the weight off.
Although there is no magic formula for weight loss, you can do a few things to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The Weight Of Healthy Living
It should be no surprise that long-term weight maintenance is part of a healthy lifestyle; healthy living can stave off unhealthy weight changes and their health consequences.
What is surprising is how interconnected health and healthy weight maintenance really are. Inasmuch as unhealthy weight causes poor health, health conditions that develop before unhealthy weight changes (like injuries, metabolic disorders, mental health conditions, and stress) also cause unhealthy weight.
Healthful habits disrupt this feedback circuit between poor health and unhealthy weight. That is why cultivating healthful habits, especially to leverage nutrition and stress management to control body composition, may be the most effective way to maintain a healthy weight.
Tips to Maintain a Healthy Body Weight
Relapsing to an unhealthy weight is common and recoverable. It happens both because life drives people toward unhelpful behaviors, and because our bodies’ natural responses to weight control heighten the desire for unhealthful choices and decrease the satisfaction gained from healthy ones.
Certain healthy living attitudes and acts can help you navigate these issues with greater long-term success.
1. Keep a Check on Your Portion Sizes
You may avoid overeating by eating smaller quantities, which will make it possible for you to consume more of the foods you enjoy regularly.
2. Drink Lots of Water
You may maintain a healthy weight by drinking water, eating well, and working out daily. The Obesity Society claims that regularly consuming water can also reduce your waistline and alter your body fat percentage over time.
3. Exercise a Little Regularly
The quantity of energy you consume and use has an impact on your body weight. You must spend the same amount of energy as you take in to maintain your present body weight; however, to lose weight, you must expend more energy than you take in.
Find a workout plan that combines cardio and weight training. Exercise has several advantages beyond just controlling your weight; it strengthens your heart, builds muscle, and promotes optimal bodily function.
4. Get in More Hours of Sleep
Every night, getting sufficient sleep aids in resetting your body and getting it ready for the following day. The National Institutes of Health claim that people who don’t get enough sleep frequently eat more than they require to stay awake. Schedule time each day to obtain enough rest.
You’ll be able to perform better throughout the day and avoid overeating if you do this. Find techniques to calm your body, such as yoga, reading, or stretching, if you have difficulties falling asleep.
5. Set a Goal and Stick to It
You must be aware of your existing situation to achieve any goal. Determine your Body Mass Index (BMI) and create a strategy to remain in the healthy range. You can get assistance from your family physician or another healthcare professional if you need it.
Clinically, a person has a healthy weight when:
– Their body fat percentage* is within a healthy range for their biological sex, age, and activity level (10%-35% for women, 2%-24% for men)
– They have a small-to-moderate amount of visceral fat in their abdomen, which is usually indicated by a waist circumference less than 35” for women, 40” for men.
Generally, people with both have a low risk of developing, losing body function because of, or dying from weight-related illnesses — especially diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Nevertheless, healthy living aims to make healthful behaviors sustainable enough to reasonably and safely continue for a long time — even a lifetime. That often requires replacing unhealthy coping mechanisms with healthful alternatives that still feel good. For example, natural herbs can soothe symptoms of illness (even when weight-related) and the stress that contributes to increases in visceral abdominal fat.
It is better to begin with modest, short-term objectives that you are confident you can achieve. You will be able to accomplish your long-term goals by doing this.
It can be difficult to maintain your weight or lose weight if necessary. You can get assistance from healthcare professionals, including your doctor, a qualified dietitian, and others. You can also get assistance from your partner, family, and friends. They may even decide to join you.
Simple, tiny, and straightforward life improvements can make a big difference whether you’re at home, at work, or on the go.

“Ideal” weights based on BMI/body fat percentage are not always accurate. Weight-based body fat percentage thresholds for being clinically underweight or overweight come with significant unreliability — especially for racial/ethnic minority groups, athletes, and older people.
