Contrary to what you might believe, living near a variety of restaurants, convenience stores, supermarkets, and even fast food outlets actually lowers your risk for obesity, according to a new study. Surprisingly, people who live more than a half mile away from any food outlets are the ones who tend to be fatter. "Having access to a range of food options in your neighborhood affects both your energy input and output," says Cathleen Zick, coauthor of the study and professor of family and consumer studies at the University of Utah. "A healthy grocery option may influence the food you choose to buy, while having multiple food destinations within walking distance might encourage you to walk, rather than drive, to your next meal."
