Being physically active is one of the best things you can do for your health. Physical activity plays a major role in weight loss and weight maintenance. It can also help prevent chronic diseases and helps with blood glucose, cholesterol, and blood pressure control.
The calories you take in come from everything that you eat and drink. On the contrary, you burn calories when you do physical activity. The more physical activity you do, the more calories you burn, which helps with weight loss.
You should set goals and make a plan to become more physically active just like you did with healthier eating. Start setting your physical activity goals and make a plan and get on your way to a healthier weight today!
Learn about how to increase the amount of physical activity you do and how you can easily fit it into your daily schedule by visiting the following sections on diabetes.org.
