Are you constantly on the move? If so, are you also watching what you eat? Well, hopefully so, because research shows that even small specific changes in how we eat and exercise can have a positive effect on our health and could help stop weight gain. Good health depends upon a healthy lifestyle. Extra pounds can create real health problems for you or your family. A great online resource is americaonthemove.org. They have tons of information on how to stay active and maintain proper weight through smart food choices and portion control. The website has a “Challenge Log” to track your physical activity by steps or minutes, and then view your progress instantly each day. The “Daily Menu Planner” helps you manage your daily food choices. And the best part is you don't have to do it alone. You can give and get motivation and support from others while sharing your progress and encouraging your friends online. And did I mention it’s all free? With the support of sponsors and partners, America On the Move is inspiring more people to make positive changes in their lives, every day. I’m Jill Cordes.
