When you want to manage your weight and health, eating a healthy diet and being more active can help. Changing how you think and finding support also can help. You may want to work with your doctor to make a plan that's right for you.
Start by making small changes in your eating and exercise habits. Improve your eating habits by making one change at a time. And try for at least 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity on most days of the week.
Your thoughts have a lot to do with how you feel and what you do. When you're trying to manage your weight and health, changing how you think about certain things may help.

Follow-up care is a key part of your treatment and safety. Be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call your doctor or nurse advice line (811 in most provinces and territories) if you are having problems. It's also a good idea to know your test results and keep a list of the medicines you take.
