For years, we’ve been hearing about the unhealthy lifestyle that many Americans are living. Now, we have an idea of just how many people that describes, and it’s not good.
Less than 3 percent of Americans are living they way they should, according to the medical journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings.
In order to be considered healthy, the study said participants need to exercise 2.5 hours per week, eat a healthy diet, have a body fat percentage under 20 percent for men and 30 percent for women and avoid smoking.
