Small Changes Make a Big Difference

Anyone trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle or maintain a healthy weight knows change is hard and long-term success is even harder.

"Large, permanent changes in diet and activity are much harder to implement and sustain," says Dr. James Hill, a nationally recognized obesity expert. "By shifting our focus to small changes in diet and physical activity, we can help improve our nation's overall health and wellness."

Here are some simple and small steps you can take toward better health and wellness:

Track your steps and add 1,000 steps to your daily routine. Wear a pedometer to keep track.

Bypass sugary sodas and reach for low fat or fat free milk instead. Milk offers more nutrients per penny than almost any other beverage option in the supermarket providing key vitamins and minerals like calcium and vitamin D. Studies even suggest that milk drinkers tend to have healthier diets and are likely to be leaner than people who drink little or no milk. While companies have tried to duplicate milk's benefits in manufactured beverages, none are as wholesome and naturally nutritious as milk.

Stock the pantry and refrigerator with healthy foods, and keep them in front, so you'll reach for them first.
