Where Are the ‘Fattest Cities’ in the U.S.? New Study – Digital Journal

Read article - Quotes Diane Gilbert-Diamond, associate professor of epidemiology and of community and family medicine, about a new study that found that geographic variations in weight are not evenly distributed and some cities have populations heavier than others. "Some people set really high goals for healthy eating and exercise and then feel discouraged when they can't meet or sustain those goals. People should feel encouraged that even small increases in exercise and healthy eating can improve health," says Gilbert-Diamond. "Individuals can also be tempted by fad diets that promise fast results. Most people cannot successfully lose weight and keep it off with these diets. Seek sound nutrition advice from your doctor or sources like Harvard's nutrition source for a sustainable healthy diet."
