Good nutrition, physical activity, and a healthy body weight are essential parts of a person’s overall health and well-being. Together, these can help decrease a person’s risk of developing serious health conditions, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer.. A healthful diet, regular physical activity, and achieving and maintaining a healthy weight are key to managing health conditions and improving the health of Americans at every age.
