Campaign to Visit Erie to Rally Residents to Eat Right, Move More and Milk

Their Diets

ERIE, Pa., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The last decade can be defined by the ups and downs of different fad diets -- which seem to go in and out of fashion like shoulder pads and hemlines. Yet, long-term success has been slim. Two out of three Americans remain overweight or obese.

The Campaign will make its stop in Erie on Saturday, September 13, to urge local residents to change their "diet" mindset and elect a new attitude.

Weighing in on the American Diet

People who are watching their weight, however, are making less than optimal beverage choices. Coffee, soft drinks, teas and juices are most likely filling their glasses and cups, with milk being the fifth most frequently consumed beverage -- only 14 percent of all beverage occasions. The report found that adult dieters who made drinking lowfat or fat free milk a daily habit were more likely to have a healthier body mass index (BMI), a better quality diet and were less likely to feel nutrient-deprived, compa
