Health Tip of the Day

Are You Overweight?

If you're not sure whether you are overweight, don't go solely by what the scale says. An adult is considered overweight when he or she has a body mass index (BMI) between 25 and 29.9, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. An adult with a BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. BMI is a standard that takes into account your height as well as your weight.

Add color to your plate with fresh fruit and vegetables, choose whole grains and low-fat dairy, and keep an eye on your portion size. Aim for balance, variety, flexibility and moderation.
