Weight control is very popular these days. People hope to become thin quickly. Some even take medicine without a doctor's prescription. But reports show that although many of them do lose weight, they soon gain it back or gain even more.

So how can you safely control your weight? Diet and exercise are the answers. Eat only when you are hungry and eat only food that is good for your health. Never just stop eating; doing so can make you feel even hungrier, and you will eat more. Also, it is better to prepare your own food instead of eating out. And think about changing your lifestyle. For example, turn off the TV and the computer and get some exercise every day. But remember: Don't be too strict with yourself. Give yourself some time to find the best way to control your weight.
