Did you know:  The rising obesity epidemic in the United States has two major contributors: lack of physical activity and sitting too much.  Recent research has found that for those who sit all day at work and still meet minimum daily exercise guidelines may not be able to off-set the detrimental effects of “sitting disease.”  “This leads to soaring levels of triglycerides, elevated risk of cardiovascular disease and lower levels of good cholesterol,” said Len Kravitz, Ph.D.  Global studies show, on average, we sit 7.7 hours a day, and some results estimate people sit up to 15 hours a day.  Learn how to incorporate movement and exercise into your day with the following offerings.

Did you know:  Each food group packs a different nutritional punch.  When you choose a variety of foods, you are more likely to meet all your nutrient needs.  Produce, like fruits and vegetables, are naturally low in calories and high in nutrients and fiber.  Aim to make half your plate plant-based.  Switch to a smaller plate and model your meal after the USDA healthy plate.  This takes the guesswork out of healthy meal planning.  Check out our “Labels and Plates” class to learn more. 

The following is NOT an eligible Next Step activity, but please don’t let that stop you from taking advantage of this excellent program.
