Health Tip: Overcoming the Obesity Epidemic

Habits That Can Help You Lose Weight Slideshow

(HealthDay News) -- Your chances of becoming obese are only made worse if you're a chronic couch potato.

The American Council on Exercise suggests how businesses, governments and communities can promote physical activity:

  • Employers should create programs that motivate people to stay moving on the job.
  • Physical education programs for grades K-12 should require exercise to be a part of all before-school, after-school and summer programs.
  • Governments and businesses should stress opportunities for physical activity, including for people with disabilities.
  • Governments should concentrate on funding research into the dangers of physical inactivity.
