Eat Well, Exercise Regularly

“Eating well and exercising are linked in even more important ways. Probably the most important is health and fitness. It is possible to improve your health by eating well, but, unfortunately, it is possible to be healthy but not physically fit. There are many people of ideal body weight and good overall health who are not physically fit. Likewise, we can improve our fitness level with just exercise. Fitness is really the relationship between how much work can be done in a certain amount of time. Whether it is running, weightlifting, shoveling snow or cutting wood, moving large loads quickly is a pretty good indicator of fitness. Together, being healthy and physically fit can greatly reduce the risk of premature death, not to mention being essential for long lasting weight control.”
