A Healthy Weight For You
Healthy Eating coupled with being more active is a key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
Become more active every day. Begin slowly and gradually work up to a brisker walk, a more strenuous bike ride, a longer swim, more flights of stairs. Work more physical activity into your daily routines...climb the stairs, walk at lunch, walk to the store.
Find time for being more active by combining physical activity with family time...picnic and hike; bike with the kids; walk the dog; skate, ski, toboggan together.
Participate in activities you enjoy so that being more active is not stressful.
