Regular physical activity may help you reach and maintain a healthy weight.
Being physically active may also make you more energetic, improve your mood, and
reduce the risk of developing some chronic diseases.
Physical activity is important for
physical health, emotional well-being, and achieving a healthy weight. Physical
activity may help you control your weight by using excess calories that would
otherwise be stored as fat. Most foods and many beverages you eat and drink
contain calories, and everything you do uses calories. This includes sleeping,
breathing, digesting food, and of course, moving around. Balancing the calories
you eat with the calories you use through physical activity may help you
maintain your current weight.
