Risks to your Health
Impacts on Your Sleep
Some recommendations from Health Canada
To help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight, Health Canada makes the following recommendations:
- Reduce the size and frequency of servings by avoiding restaurants that serve large plates or all-you-can-eat meals.
- Limit the consumption of alcoholic or sweetened beverages, which are high in calories.
- Set aside time every day to be active: physical activity helps burn a lot of calories!
- Avoid “miracle” diets that allow you to lose weight quickly and often forbid certain foods. You will quickly regain the weight you lost as soon as you return to a normal diet.
If you are concerned about your weight, consult your health care professional to get a complete assessment and discuss the risks to your health.
