The American Dietetic Association released their 2008 survey results and the trends were promising, indicating that an increasing number of Americans are more concerned about eating healthy and exercising.Â The survey is done every year and asks a series of questions that will put you in one of three categories.Â These categories represent people's overall attitudes toward maintaining a healthy diet and getting regular exercise.Â The three categories are:
