Healthy Eating Workshop June 9 In Fargo

More than two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese, putting them at risk for heart disease, stroke and many other chronic illnesses and conditions.

Making healthy changes in the workplace — where many adults spend much of their day — is an important way to help people be healthier.

A 2010 study showed that improving the types of foods and beverages sold in the workplace positively affected the eating behaviors of employees and resulted in a net weight loss.

Here are some exercises you can do at your desk to get moving while at work.
