According to the Centers for Disease Control, almost two of every three American adults are overweight. This number has grown from about one in two about twenty years ago and continues to increase. It is obvious that the American lifestyle has become more sedentary and the rates of diabetes and heart disease have increased proportionally. Our generation needs to be the ones to change this trend or we may become the first generation to have a lower life-expectancy than the one before it.
However, like many people I had no idea where to start to get healthy.
The benefits go beyond reducing health risks. I feel better about myself and I love being able to get up and exercise.
