CDC Launches Wellness Web Site

The CDC has launched a new, all inclusive, attractive, informative web site, "Healthy Weight," whose tag line is "It's not a diet. It's a lifestyle." The web site is easy to navigate and well organized. The main focus is about achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. The site is a great source of inspiration for all Americans to adapt an on-going lifestyle that they can stick with for years to come. The tool is divided into the following categories:

  • Assessing Your Weight
  • Balancing Calories
  • Preventing Weight Gain
  • Losing Weight
  • Healthy Eating for Healthy Weight
  • Physical Activity for Healthy Weight
  • Tips for Parents - to Help Prevent Childhood Overweight
  • The Health Effects of Overweight and Obesity
  • Resources

The web site has links to many more informative CDC programs that include a wide selection of related topics. Check it out at Encourage your employees to visit the web site or use the information available as pdf's to copy and post in a variety of high traffic areas. Help pass the message that all Americans need to take responsibility for their health!
