Started by the American Diabetic Association, the month of march is “National Nutrition Month,” which focuses on overall health, physical fitness, and eating right. Good nutrition has an effect on your whole body. Taking control of your health contributes to your overall well being. Losing weight or maintaining your ideal weight, reduces the risk of chronic illness such as diabetes and heart disease. Eating healthy foods and regularly exercising not only helps you to reach your weight goals, it also keeps your entire body healthier and more energized. When you feel good, you want to continue doing those things, which helps you see the results you want.
