Doctor :   were you obese in your child hood?
User :   not really, my weight started increasing about 10 yrs back
Doctor :   By decreasing daily calorie intake by 500 calories or expending an extra 500 calories during exercise each day, you will lose about half kg per week.
Doctor :   Any good diet plan will include exercise.
Doctor :   You should exercise for at least 30 minutes, 5 times a week. Regular exercise also helps your heart and lungs and lowers triglyceride levels that can cause heart disease.
Doctor :   It also increases the HDL ("good cholesterol") levels
Doctor :   Even simple measures such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator and short walks eventually add up to a lot of calories burned.
