Campaign to Visit Pennsylvania to Rally Residents to Eat Right, Move More

and Milk Their Diets

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 12 /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 -- including 57 percent of Pennsylvania residents -- remain overweight or obese.

And, people who maintain a healthy weight are less likely to be at risk for weight-related health conditions, such as heart disease. The Campaign will make its stop in Philadelphia on November 15th, 2008, to urge local residents to change their "diet" mindset and elect a new attitude.

Health management is starting to become a bigger part of weight management. The key is to make small, sustainable changes that can last a lifetime. Drinking lowfat or fat free milk as a part of a healthy daily eating plan and walking more every day are two easy adjustments that can go a long way in supporting a healthy weight.
