People are obsessed with health and fitness, but more than a third of American adults (78.6 million people), and just about a fifth of children between 2 and 19 years old (12.7 million), are overweight or obese, according to the Journal of American Medicine. Losing extra inches around the waist and thighs takes time, dedication, and consistency. But you have to start somewhere. The sooner you see results, the more motivated you are to continue your healthy journey. The good news is that you can do a lot to feel less puffy by the end of the day.
