Posts Tagged ‘cardio’

You hear it mentioned all the time, everywhere you go. You think, everybody has it, right? Well, except for horse jockeys, ballerinas, workout gurus, and the like. So none of us has the perfect body. Big deal. What could a little belly fat do to us, huh, kill us?

The answer is — Yes, it can.

We’ve no doubt all heard of the dreaded Heart Disease and

Type 2 Diabetes. That’s what having a bigger waistline can cost us.

 Also estrogen levels can skyrocket, and the added risk of Breast Cancer is more

prevalent. There is the risk of Colorectal Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease as well.

Bells and whistles should be sounding loudly in our heads.

Sounds loud enough that if we chose to ignore them–other caring individuals will hear and succeed in getting us to do something about it by taking  action.

The belly fat itself runs deep within the abdomen and surrounds our internal organs. This is called visceral fat, and it is  high on the list for contributing to the risk of  Strokes. Are we scared yet? It should scare us. I mean, if this doesn’t, what will?  Something has to be done to combat belly fat. Ladies, if our waistlines measure 35 inches or more,we are at risk for any of the afore-mentioned diseases or conditions. Men, for you it’s 40 inches and above.

Well, I think we all know what it’s going to take, don’t we? Healthy diet, a good excercise regimen, reduce stress, reduce calories, and proper amount of sleep. I know, this sounds like a lot of work. But I’ve found that if you start with a good workout session, the other things will usually be easier to follow.

Ready for the great news? When we lose weight, our belly fat gets burned first. Yeah, that’s right! And if we add some cardio to our day, we combat stress and get better quality of sleep. That knocks out two on the list right there. How about it? Let’s get started on living a better way, and living another day!

 Thanks for viewing.
