Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plan There are many different health conditions a person can suffer from if they do not keep their selves in good health by eating the right foods and consistent exercise. One health condition that I believe that I may suffer from if I do not stay on top of my health is diabetes. The reason why I believe that I have a high chance of developing diabetes is because my grandmother suffers from diabetes now and my great grandmother did also. Most disease is hereditary, or come from poor diets and lack of exercise. One of the best ways to help prevent or control diabetes is regular exercise.
