Ready To Lose Your Spare Tire and Help Your Heart!?
Engaging in good ole diet and exercise to lose the spare tire around your waste will do more than increase your confidence, it will also greatly reduce your heart risk.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and someone dies from a complication related to heart disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With statistics like these, it’s painfully obvious that Americans are not doing enough to implement a healthy lifestyle and reduce their risks of developing the more than 50 types of this disease.
Most commonly people develop pulmonary heart disease, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, and congestive heart failure. The saddest thing about all of this is that most heart diseases can be prevented, reduced, or prevented. And you don’t have to buy an expensive cure or undergo extensive surgery, all you need to do is keep your weight within a healthy range.
Why is this so important?
Because when you carry around an excess amount of weight your heart works overtime to keep blood pumping throughout the body.
It also raises blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. It has been proven that people who are significantly overweight or obese are at a much higher risk of developing heart disease than those who don’t.
Another thing that increases your risk? Location, location, location. It turns out that the area in which you tend to carry the most excess fat can make a big difference, with those who tend to carry their weight around the midsections being at the most risk.
This is because there are two different types of fat, subcutaneous and visceral. Subcutaneous fat is the type that is found on the upper arms, buttocks, and thighs, and it is located underneath the layers of the skin.
Visceral fat is found within the abdominal cavity where it dangerously lies around the organs. But most concerning it the fact that it functions differently than subcutaneous fat, as it produces more chemicals and hormones as well as is more biologically and metabolically active. Because of this, fat cells tend to release signals to the body that causes inflammation and can negatively affect organs.
The good news is that, even though it may not always be easy, both of these types of fat can be reduced through a healthy diet and regular exercise. And even losing that first initial 10 pounds, can significantly begin to reduce one’s risk of developing heart disease.
So try to eat plenty of natural foods, fruits and vegetables, and less processed foods that are high in sugar. And while you’re at it, try to work out for a minimum of 30 minutes on most days of the week, upping your intensity to burn off greater amounts of visceral fat.
