Sweat the Small Stuff

Well, the latest numbers are in and Americans are now gaining 2 pounds per year, every year, on average. That’s 20 pounds per decade–yikes!

Consider this: To gain 2 pounds per year you need to overeat by only 19 calories per day (1 saltine cracker.) On the bright side, this also means that you can lose 2 pounds per year by burning 19 calories more than you eat each day–that’s only 2 extra minutes of exercise. Every little nibble or extra minute of physical activity adds up over time, so start sweating the small stuff.
