You’re the backbone of commerce. Every day, millions of people you’ll never meet rely on you to transport and deliver goods that keep their lives, homes and jobs running smoothly. So, It is very important for our drivers to be healthy.

8 Tips to Lose Weight and Prevent Obesity

Develop healthy habits by making small changes to your routine. Consider the following tips to prevent obesity and improve your health.

#8 See Your Doctor Regularly

In a study of American truck drivers, many viewed their required DOT physicals as adequate to meet their non-urgent medical needs. Unfortunately, this is not a good substitute for routine medical care. Too often DOT physicals are performed at different locations where the doctor likely has never seen you before and may never see you again. Schedule an annual physical with a doctor in your hometown who can provide ongoing monitoring of your health status.

Here’s to Your Health

The truth is America needs you. We need you to stay healthy for yourselves, your families and your job. If you’re just starting on your journey to an active lifestyle, choose one or two small changes to begin and make them a habit. Even simple lifestyle changes can make a lasting, positive impact on your overall health.
