Often, when we think about controlling weight, we think about needing to shed pounds. Some people, however, struggle to keep weight on. People in the former scenario may be dealing with thyroid issues while people in the latter may be struggling with something like Crohn’s disease. In either case, exercise can help level the playing field, but a doctor should be consulted before pursuing any specific weight control regimen.

Along with exercise, diet is a key component in controlling your weight. Different people thrive on different kinds of diets. Weight loss usually centers on trying to reduce the carbs and bad fats while people who have a hard time keeping their weight at a normal rate may need to eat more dairy and fatty foods. Talk to your doctor and/or a nutritionist to find the weight control solution that will work best for your body’s particular needs.
