Those who did both weight and aerobic training dropped about 4 pounds and 1 waistline inch.  This group also had lower diastolic lower blood pressure as well as a decline in metabolic syndrome score.

  1. Exercise more Exercise has various benefits including preventing weight gain, controlling blood sugar levels, and other conditions. A minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity every day is very beneficial.
  2. Eat healthy A diet rich in whole grain, fruits, and vegetables is very good for the body. Fibrous food will ensure that you feel fuller for a longer period and prevent any cravings. Avoid processed and refined food as much as possible.
  3. Limit your alcohol intake and quit smoking Too much alcohol leads to weight gain and can increase your blood pressure and triglyceride levels. Men should limit drinks to two per day and women to one per day. Smokers are twice as likely to develop diabetes as non-smokers and therefore, it is a good idea to quit this habit.
  4. Understand your risk factors Doing so can help you in taking preventive measures at the earliest and avoid complications.
