Don’t just sit there!!!

Have you ever thought about adding nutrition to your body through moving and walking more?

sitting more than 4 hours/day results in a 50% increased risk of death from any cause.

Research has shown us that people aren’t either active or sedentary—they can be both!! Even the active people can be actively sedentary! WHAT???? You can go to the gym – workout for one, two or more hours, and if you sit for 4 or more hours a day, you are still considered sedentary
