Weight Loss on the Heart

With the beginning of a new year, many have resolved to loose weight. This is a worthy resolution! Because study reviewed in the Making Healthy Choices Newsletter, Issue 70 reports that for every four point increase in ones BMI (body mass index) the incidence of ischemic heart disease (heart attack) was increased by 26%.

For example an obese person with a BMI of 32 had a 52% increase risk of ischemic heart disease compared with someone with a normal BMI of 24. If you don’t know your BMI you can go to www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/obesity/BMI/bmicalc.htm. If it is 25 or higher you should make health choices to loose weight; for better health!
