So what goals are you working toward? Ideally, you’ll find a balance between incorporating physical activity into your life while also achieving a healthy diet. But if you need to, focus on one goal at a time.
And while it’s true that specific exercise and diet recommendations may fluctuate over time, the bottom line remains that to stay healthy and maintain a healthy weight, you need to get moving and make smart food choices.
Find some activities you enjoy and that fit in with your lifestyle. By accumulating at least 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week — and including healthy food choices into your daily routine — you can achieve and maintain a healthy weight and reduce your risk of many chronic diseases.
