2) Besides aerobic activity, one should also engage in muscle-strengthening activities (also known as resistance exercises or strength training) that work all major muscle groups (e.g. arms, shoulders, chest, back, hips, legs, abdominals) on 2 or more days a week.
Highly recommended for weight control, muscle-strengthening activities make the muscles stronger by overloading the muscles. Engaging in regular muscle-strengthening activities will increase muscle mass, which helps burn calories.

Swop to Whole-grains 
Be it bread, rice or noodles, natural is best! The less processed your options, the more whole-grains it contains – it also helps you get full fast and for a longer period of time.
When prepared well (i.e. with less fat and sugar), whole-grains, fruits and vegetables are relatively lower in calories. They are also a rich source of antioxidants so you get more goodness in these foods for every mouthful of calories you consume.
Don’t fret about limiting your whole-grains to just bread and rice. Singaporeans can enjoy a wider variety of whole-grain products such as whole-grain enriched noodles, kway teow, mun tou and biscuits.
