Weight loss & cardiovascular health
A study in to the effects of weightloss and cardiovascular health was conducted in the American College of cardiology. The study involved 3,000 men and women who were initially overweight
Research concluded that those who exercised consistently and lost weight had the biggest reduction in heart attack risk over six years of follow-up. Exercising without losing weight and losing weight without exercising offered smaller benefits.
Not surprisingly, those who didn’t exercise and who gained weight were much more likely to have developed high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and metabolic syndrome, a constellation of factors that increase the likelihood of having a heart attack or stroke.
