Meeting a class of young adults today to present a talk on modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors for heart disease,
Heart attacks and stroke are the top killers for Ky residents these days and majority of the people who die early are smokers, over weight (+10lbs) or BOTH!!
We can’t change our height, age, or genetics (non-modifiable) but we can alter our weight, metabolism, and bone & joint healht. Having a body that’s overweight slows you down, when you slow down you become at greater risk for weakening your heart muscle and becoming susceptible for stroke or heart attacks
The best exercise for a heart lasts only 20mins (weights, walking) and should be done most days of the week. If you’re doing nothing, shame on you, if you eat too much, shame on you again, but if you are conscious of what you eat & drink with a little exercise, you should stave off high blood pressure and Type II diabetes.
Be the difference
When is the last time you lost 5lbs and kept it off?
