Is Dieting Good For Health?

One can define dieting as the conscious control of diet with the aim of reducing, preserving or accumulating the body mass.

Mostly the obese or overweight people who have exceeded the recommended weight follow a controlled diet. Dieting helps them lose excess weight. It can produce excellent results when backed by physical exercises.

People who are overly thin follow a diet to add weight and muscle. It is normally recommended to have a balanced Body Mass Index. That means that the height of the person and the weight are corresponding. A doctor who performs the BMI examination recommends the amount weight required to be added on or reduced for optimum body function.
