Eat Habits/ Dieting
I don’t want to become another part of the statistic. There are so many different ways and tactics to beat obesity and live a long healthy life.
I wanted to learn ways to make eating right and exercising on a regular basis fun and not a chore that that one has to complete.
We are the fattest country and basic nutrition habits start out at a young age. People don’t want to become another statistic.
People need to learn now the issues that they could face, how important exercise it and that it is beneficial to maintain a healthy diet and weight.
Obesity is a growing epidemic that continues to affect our country in many ways. Obesity is 100% preventable and people need to learn how to maintain a healthy life style.
