    Eat Better. Move More.

    Physical activity is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. In combination with healthy eating, it can help prevent a range of chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, and stroke, which are the three leading causes of death.

    Getting physical will help you control weight, build lean muscle, reduce fat, and decreases the risk of obesity.
