Are you overweight?

Find out for yourself:

Check what your BMI means

A balance diet simply means consumption of a variety of food in appropriate quantities. Excess of any food can be harmful to your general well-being. Hence, choose a healthy lifestyle and dietary habits by including different kinds of food from each of the food groups every day. Mix and match your food choices and portions through the day to meet the recommended number of servings. It is variety that matter, not the exact quantities!
