Overview

This 3-page fact sheet delivers important information on healthy eating habits, physical activity, and preventing obesity and chronic diseases.

Americans can face particular obstacles that can impact their quality of life. For example, 9 percent of the United States (U.S.) population have diabetes. 36.5 percent of adults in the U.S. are obese, with another 32.5 percent being overweight. In all, more than two-thirds of adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese. Despite documented benefits of exercise and physical activity, a little more than half (52 percent) of U.S. adults do not meet physical activity guidelines. When all is said and done, many people are not eating a healthy diet and are not physically active. These behaviors result in unhealthy weights and chronic diseases. This document offers information on getting it 'D.O.N.E.' See what this means.
