Obesity In The U.S.: Fighting The Epidemic With Proper Diet & Exercise [Infographic]

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimate that, in 2010, more than one-third (35.7%) of adults in the United States were obese. Obesity is a serious problem that can lead to other complications such as heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. The health problems caused by obesity are some of the leading causes of preventable death.

Fortunately, the effects of obesity are reversible through a proper diet and frequent exercise. Simple modifications to your diet, such as switching to fat-free or 1% milk, eating whole grains, and increasing your consumption of fruits and vegetables, can help lead to a healthier lifestyle. Exercise is an important part of weight loss therapy, and to maintain a healthy weight, you should make sure you accumulate at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day.
