Lose Weight if you want a healthier heart

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. 
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the 
number of obese Americans continues to rise. In fact, 30 percent 
of adults over age 20- more than 60 million people-are obese, 
which means they are 30 pounds overweight and have a Body fat 
percentage that is considered obese.

Obesity Is On The Rise!

One of the goals of the National Institutes of Health is to reduce 
obesity among adults by more than half by the year 2025. However, 
current data suggests that the situation is getting worse. Due to 
rising rates of childhood obesity, life expectancy for the average 
American could decrease by two to five years over the next few 
decades unless major efforts are made to slow down the rising 
rates of obesity.

What's more, obesity is a risk factor for heart disease and other 
serious health complications:

- Obesity is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure 
  and high cholesterol. Having these disorders at the same time is 
  a condition called metabolic syndrome, which can lead to an 
  increased risk for heart disease and kidney disease. 

- High blood pressure, a risk factor for heart disease, is twice as 
  common in obese adults than in those who are at a healthy weight. 

- Obesity can also lead to arthritis, which is caused by stress on 
  your joints.

A Likely Trigger For Heart Disease

Obesity, high cholesterol and high blood pressure are a common 
grouping of risk factors for people with heart disease. Managing 
all these risk factors will help reduce the risk of heart attack 
and stroke. 

What You Can Do Today

Overweight and obesity together represent the number-two preventable 
cause of death in the U.S. after smoking. There are many things you 
can do to get your weight under control and to help manage your risk 
for heart disease:

- Develop a diet and exercise plan that you feel is realistic and 
  that you can maintain.

  risk factors for heart disease. If you are prescribed medicines, 
  take them exactly as directed and for as long as your doctor 
  recommends.
