According to research, overweight and obesity are associated with four of the ten leading causes of death (heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes). We must eat well and exercise to increase our chances of living a longer, healthier life.
Proper nutrition is critical to good health; however, identifying which foods you need for a healthy diet can be challenging. Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight isn’t just about a “diet” or “program”. It is part of an ongoing lifestyle. MyFit can help you achieve and maintain a healthy diet by providing knowledge to change how you eat.

The Perfect Fit
A balanced exercise program and good nutrition is essential for good health and well being. Benefits include weight loss, stronger bones and muscles, a lower blood pressure and cholesterol level, a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, a lower risk of diabetes, a reduced risk of metabolic disorders and obesity, a reduced risk of some cancers, and a boost to your mood and energy levels. We rarely lose weight and keep it off without daily exercise. Together, proper strength training, cardio training, and nutrition are the only way to achieve lifelong weight control and a healthy lifestyle.
