Arkansas is in the top three for obesity

The CDC recently conducted a study that shows Arkansas ranks in the top three states for highest rates of obesity. The other two states alongside Arkansas are Mississippi and West Virginia. A nutritionist at St. Bernards Health and Wellness stated that many things factor into obesity, including income and poverty levels. There are many ways to battle obesity, many of which are super simple. Just walking 60 minutes a day can help get you in shape. Also, we need to eat more fruit and vegetables and less fast food. Eating healthy can be expensive, but it is also worth it. Small steps can make a big difference.
