Fitness, Diet & Nutrition Feature Package

1. Shaping Up Your Body and Brain in 2013

SEATTLE, Dec. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- At the time of year many people resolve to shape up their bodies, there's added incentive to follow through: Doing so can also boost mental fitness, potentially delaying the onset of dementia. With the number of new cases of Alzheimer's disease in the U.S. projected to increase by 130% in 2030 compared to 2000, it should be an important motivator to make your good intentions a reality, says Dr. Paul Nussbaum. He is the director of brain health for Emeritus Senior Living and clinical neuropsychologist and adjunct professor of neurological surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

2. Physical Fitness in 2013 Means Being Protected From Hit-and-Run Collisions While Exercising Outdoors

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Adults who resolve to be physically fit this year—such as runners preparing for the Allstate Life Insurance Los Angeles 13.1 Marathon and 5K on January 13—should be sure to carry uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage on their car. Why? Because if a pedestrian or cyclist carries uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) on their personal auto, the cost of recovery from injuries or losses as a result of being hit by this type of driver, even while exercising outdoors, can be covered, subject to policy terms and definitions.
