Be active l.jpg
Be Active!

  • MyPyramid is specific for each person

  • Recommendations:

    • Be physically active for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week

    • Be active at a moderate or vigorous level


Why physical activity l.jpg
Why Physical Activity?

  • Physical activity is “movement of the body that uses energy” (calories)

  • Calories are used up through activity

  • The more time and intensity of the activity, the more calories are burned


Moderate vs vigorous l.jpg
Moderate vs. Vigorous

  • Moderate intensity: gardening, dancing, hiking or light weight training

  • Vigorous intensity: aerobics, swimming freestyle laps, chopping wood or running 5mph or faster

  • Activities of lower intensity that do not raise heart rate are not counted toward daily physical activity
