Recent research on worldwide obesity was published in The Lancet. The study found that the proportion of men who were overweight or obese rose from 28.8% in 1980 to 36.9% in 2013, while the proportion of women who are obese or overweight increased from 29.8% to 38%! That translates to 2.1 billion obese or overweight people around the globe in 2013!

new research shows that even strenuous workouts are okay for women who were in good shape before getting pregnant. However, expectant women need to take extra precautions and hot summer days add extra concerns, but don't let those concerns get in the way of your healthy pregnancy.
