More than a billion people are overweight and that number is expected to increase substantially over the next decade. According to the experts at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ways to avoid being part of such statistics include:
• Eat more fruits and vegetables and fewer foods high in fat and sugar.
• Drink water instead of sugary drinks.
• Limit TV watching in kids to less than two hours a day.
• Try going for a 10-minute brisk walk, three times a day, five days a week.
