Q. How can i prevent my mother reducing the overweight? she is an 52 years of old. She is an house wife

A. Do you mean how to help her lose her overweight?
The best way is diet and exercise. In order for her not to feel like she is the only one on a diet, its best if all the family starts eating a healthy diet. This will help both her and all of you. She should also exercise. You can encourage her by taking walks with her around the neighborhood, or walking to the grocery store instead of driving there, taking the steps instead of an elevator and more.
Here is a website with a lot of information on how to eat healthy:

Q. How can i prevent my mother reducing the overweight? she is an 52 years of old. She is an house wife she had diabetic & BP

A. I think that the key to weight loss is not so much as dieting but taking control over what and how much you eat. I eat at least six times a day, thats four meals and two snacks. The protions that i eat however are not that big. I mostly just eat until I'm full or just satisfied. I really dont excercise either except for walking and I have lost 55 pounds over about a 3 or 4 month period. I LOVE food and the few diets that i did try didnt work, either because I was still hungry or I just didnt stick to them long enough to see results. I don't know if this works for everyone, but it worked for me. I think this worked because eating six meals a day kept my metabolism running almost constantly, so i ended up burning more calories than i took in. This may not take the weight off fast, but it can help you lose weight and keep it off. Hope this helps.
