Health Tip: Get Moving Toward a Healthier You
Here's what you can do
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- A healthier you could be within reach if you follow a few guidelines.

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases advises:

  • Measure your waist. Men with a circumference of greater than 40 inches, or women greater than 35 inches, are at heightened risk of health problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
  • Plan an exercise schedule that's tailored to your goals. As you begin meeting goals, increase your activity.
  • Plan for the fitness challenges you are likely to face, and ways to overcome them.
  • Make healthier food choices. Eat more fruit and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. Cut back on salt, sugar and solid fats.
