Educate yourself. Become an expert on yourself. The recommendations of the USDA, the AHA and the ADA are basics for avoiding disease generally gotten from statistics. There are numerous resources for learning to gain optimal health. Research and don't take any one source as the last word.
Patient advocacy groups on specific illnesses are a good place to start, as is the medline database or the Life Extension Agency.

HOCKEY - Learn to Play as an Adult and Burn TONS of Calories!!!!
Have fun and burn amazing amounts of calories by learning a new sport - Hockey! I usually burn between 700-1100 calories during a 60-75 minute session. I don't even realize it because I'm having so much fun! Check your local ice rink for an adult learn-to-play session.
Some rinks/organizations will loan you the equipment you need or check with a used sports equipment store to save money on the equipment.
I have always had a tendency to fidget. I used to work really hard at not fidgeting. When I learned that fidgeting burns calories... I fidget all the time, and when people ask me to stop, I explain that fidgeting burns calories and ask if they wouldn't like to join me? Sometimes I get the strangest looks and sometimes people start fidgeting with me
