Staying active will help you to maintain a healthy BMI as well as regulate your blood pressure, appetite and overall health. To maintain a healthy weight and overall health you should have a good diet and well balanced exercise program consisting of strength training and cardio.
Being food insecure takes a toll on physical fitness. Especially when majority of the foods that are purchased are cheaper, of higher calories and less nutritious. According to “A Place at the Table” documentary, for $3.00 one could purchase 2 liter bottles of soda, a large bag of chips and a handful of tasty Ramen noodle packages for 3,767 calories. When for $3.00 you could only get a glass of orange juice, a couple pieces of broccoli and a bag of grapes consisting of only 312 calories.
It’s important to maintain healthy exercise habits, depending on what is being purchased for each household.
