It’s still not too late to start working towards fitting into that swimsuit you bought this summer. Take advantage of sunny days and summer activities; get out there and get moving. The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least five days per week to help keep your heart healthy and reach a healthier weight. Don’t have 30 minutes? Break it up and do three 10 minute sessions during your day.
Eating healthier along with regular exercise can help you reach a healthy weight. Following the Dietary Guidelines for Americans or using the MyPlate method is a good place to start. The MyPlate method recommends making half of your plate fruits and vegetables and with all of the fresh produce in season right now it’s a great time of year to try it.
