Fact: Most people still do not practice healthy behaviors that can prevent obesity
The primary behaviors causing the obesity epidemic are well known and preventable: physical inactivity and unhealthy diet. Despite this knowledge:
• Only about 25% of U.S. adults eat the recommended five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
• Less than 25% of adolescents eat the recommended five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
• More than 50% of American adults do not get the recommended amount of physical activity to provide health benefits.
• More than a third of young people in grades 9–12 do not regularly engage in vigorous physical activity. #Epidemic #ForceChange #StepUp #Decide #MakeADifference #BeProactive #Awareness #TakeControl (at www.kylejenkins.bodybyvi.com)
