Preventing unhealthy weight gain: Regular exercise
Like I had indicated before that even with a moderate-intensive activity on a weekly basis will be very helpful not just in controlling the weight gain but also in preventing it from occurring. For a start you can do between 150 and 300 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week to prevent weight gain. Just to help you in selecting the activity you can do, swimming and taking a walk on the park are some of the moderate intense physical activities you can do.
Eat healthy meals and snacks – Focus on low-calorie, nutrient-dense foods, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Avoid saturated fat and limit sweets and alcohol. Remember that you can still enjoy small amounts of high-fat, high-calorie foods as an infrequent treat. All you need to do is to be sure to choose foods that promote a healthy weight and good health most of the time.
Understand and avoid the food snares that cause you to eat – Identify situations that may trigger out heavy and big appetite necessitating influence into overeating. You can achieve this by keeping a journal where you write down what you eat, how much you eat, when you eat, how you are feeling and how hungry you are. With time when you study the behaviors you will be able to see certain patterns emerging. With the emerging trends, you can plan ahead and develop strategies for handling these types of situations and stay in control of your eating behaviors.

People who weigh themselves at least once a week are more successful in keeping off excess pounds.

By being consistent and sticking to your healthy-weight plans during the week, on the weekends, and amidst vacation and holidays as much as possible also increases your chances of long-term success.
