It's fall, and you know what that means: Time to dive back into all your favorite TV shows! Or, for many of use, mainlining what we missed this summer. Almost 70% of U.S. TV watchers are binge viewers. But all that couch time could be seriously harming our health. A new study from Diabetologica found that for every extra hour of TV we watch a day, we risk of diabetes goes up by 3.4%. Still want to get in your fill of Grey's Anatomy? At right, how to avoid the worst body bummers.

Your metabolism slows.  Hit the gym before you hit the couch. It will ramp up your body's fat burning and keep you going during a TV marathon.

You mindlessly snack. As you already know, Dr. Vaughan's main rules is to eliminate snacking. But, if you do stock up on healthy alternatives liked steamed edamame or almonds.

You skimp on sleep. Give yourself a strict bedtime. Make sure you factor in at least an hour away from the alluring glow of the TV or computer to properly wind down before bed- the little blue light from the screens interferes with the production of melatonin, the hormone that helps you snooze.

 
Derived from Women's Health magazine, this chart demonstrates just how much we have to do when consuming those fatty goods.


Your Weight Matters – For Your Health


 

In order to promote a healthier public and improve the quality of life for millions of Americans affected by excess weight or obesity, the Obesity Action Coalition has launched a national weight and health awareness campaign, titled the Your Weight Matters Campaign. The Campaign is issuing a Challenge to all Americans to measure their weight and talk to their healthcare provider about it.

Anyone interested in taking the Your Weight Matters Campaign Challenge can do so online at www.YourWeightMatters.org. Campaign participants are provided with a FREE resource toolkit to help them prepare for the conversation of weight with their healthcare provider. The Your Weight Matters Campaign Toolkit also includes resources on topics such as nutrition, exercise and weight-loss options. In addition, Campaign participants can opt-in to receive Your Weight Matters Weekly, a weekly e-newsletter providing nutrition and fitness tips along with news about the Campaign and much more!

The OAC is dedicated to giving a voice to those affected by excess weight and obesity. To find out more about the OAC, visit www.ObesityAction.org. If you have any questions about the Your Weight Matters Campaign, please contact the OAC at 800-717-3117 or info@yourweightmatters.org.
