You're all in this together - so why not make healthy living a family affair? According to the CDC, an estimated 68 percent of Americans are either obese or overweight. Even more frightening is the fact that 17 percent of children ages 2 through 19 are obese and 32 percent are overweight. It's not hard to figure out that heavy children grow up to be heavy adults. As the head of household, there are plenty of ways to combat the fat by making healthy and exercise a priority for your family. We're talking about activities that won't cost you a thing but may save a life. Set aside some time every evening to get physical. Those dishes aren't going anywhere. After dinner, go outside and get moving. Take your kids or spouse on a walk after dinner. Round up the neighborhood kids for a spontaneous game of kickball.
