Health Tip: Prevent Weight Gain

(HealthDay News) -- As people age, the amount of muscle decreases and the amount of body fat increases, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

This slows a person's metabolism and makes it easier to gain weight, which heightens a person's risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis and certain forms of cancer.

The CDC suggests how to maintain a healthy weight:

  • Develop an eating plan that focuses on the number of calories that you need to maintain a healthy weight.

  • Exercise daily.

  • Closely monitor your weight and activity. If you do gain weight, adjust diet and exercise accordingly.
