Today we will be looking at another interesting one that tells much about your health. This activity takes just a minute or less. Our tutorial today is on “how to tell how healthy your weight/height is”
Weight loss today has become the order of the day. Everyone wants flat tummy with 10 pack this the reason behind influx of some weight loss products, but no one is asking the necessary question if the current weight is healthy or not before embarking on that weight loss programme. The negligence comes with a devastating effect on individuals that enroll in weight loss programmes without knowing if their current weight is healthy for them.
