7. Eating fast food more than twice a week

Raises your risk: 100 percent

How: It can lead to weight gain, especially if you don't make healthy choices. People who ate burgers, fries, and soda more than twice a week put on 10 extra pounds and were twice as likely to become resistant to insulin, according to a 15-year University of Minnesota study.

The fix: Satisfy your craving for fast food with smaller portions: Try a small burger with no cheese, small fries, and a diet soda, says Chalmers. Even better, go for a grilled chicken sandwich with just a dab of honey-mustard sauce.

Next:  8. High stress

Hi folks! I am very excited to share with you a wonderful guide that helped me quit smoking for good - I have 9 months of smoke-free now, with the help of Allen Hudson's Quit Smoking Strategy. With Allen's guidance I managed to overcome my dependency, to fight the withdrawal symptoms and any temptations. I am so happy, my family and friends are so proud of me and most importantly, I feel healthy and full of energy! All thanks to Allen and his Quit Smoking Strategy:

Good story. I watch a lot of TV, so I bought a treadmill and an elliptical put them in front of the TV. I exercise everyday for about 1-1/2 hours. To me exercise is very boring, TV makes the time go faster.
