If your weight is in the OK range, then you're eating the correct amount of food to keep your weight in the desirable range for health.

Health experts worldwide agree that adults who are overweight and have weight related medical problems or a family history of such problems can benefit from weight loss. Even a small weight loss of 10 to 20 pounds (9.07 kg) can improve your overall general health by lowering your blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Are You Underweight?

If you're underweight you may need to gain some weight, this should always be done as part of a balanced and nutritious diet. Those who are very thin tend to have weaker immune systems, often making them more prone to infections, surgical complications, and slower recovery times for illness. They tend to have low muscle mass, and less than ideal hair, teeth, and skin composition. They may also have disruptions in their ability to regulate hormones and protect bone health.

Are You Overweight?

If you are overweight for your height, try to cut down on the amount you're eating, especially food and drinks high in fat or sugar, and try to do more physical activity, exercises, workouts, etc. Being overweight can increase your risk of heart disease, type II diabetes, high blood pressure, and osteoarthritis.
