The Human Body

PICTURE CHEF CHESTNUT SAYS, "YOUR BODY NOT MINE

Your body was designed for activity. By exercising regularly and making smart food choices, you’ll look and feel better.

Physical Fitness is about improving muscular strength and endurance, cardiorespiratory strength and endurance, and flexibility through regular physical activity. That includes walking the dog, raking leaves, or playing tag with the kids. Fueling your body with the right foods is also a must.

Staying Active and Eating Well Help Maintain:

A Healthy Heart

Regular physical activity and a healthy diet can lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels and can reduce the risk of illnesses such as type 2 diabetes or heart disease.

Strong Bones

Exercise, combined with fat-free or low-fat dairy products and other foods rich in calcium, is necessary to build strong, healthy bones and can help slow bone loss associated with getting older.

A sense of Well-being

Being in good shape can give you more energy, reduce anxiety and depression, improve self-esteem, and help you better manage stress.

A good social life

Staying active is a great way to have fun, make new friends, and spend quality time with family.

Looking and feeling better
