More than two-thirds of adults in the United States are reported to be overweight or obese, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. So, it's no surprise that living a healthier lifestyle is one of the country's most popular New Year's resolutions. San Diego County Library is encouraging all ages to make 2013 their healthiest year yet by offering a variety of health and wellness classes at branches throughout the county.
