EXERCISING FOR A HEALTHY HEART LOOKING GOOD ISN’T THE ONLY REASON
Though many of us work out to look sculpted and tone, an even better motivator is what regular exercise and healthy eating does for your heart. Our heart is a very important muscle that is central to us living a healthy life. Heart health should be a high priority for us all, but unfortunately, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The good news is that one-third of deaths from heart disease and strokes are preventable. Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself: Exercise. Physical activity of moderate intensity for at least two hours and 30 minutes a week can help you maintain a healthy weight, a lower cholesterol and lower blood pressure. Eat healthy. Choosing healthy meals and snack options can help you avoid heart disease. Be sure to eat plenty of whole, fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid processed and fried foods, and limit sodium. Avoid smoking. Smoking cigarettes signiﬁcantly increases your risk of heart disease. If you smoke, work on weaning yourself off. Your heart will appreciate you! By exercising and eating healthy, you will position yourself to maintain a healthy weight, which can also lower your risk of heart disease. The beautiful thing is that exercising regularly and eating healthy help you get a better body! So the next time you are at the gym, get in a great workout and think about all the wonderful things your workout is doing for your heart.
