Heart Diseases Defined

Andrew Wilson

Heart disease, also known as cardiac disease, is an extremely serious medical condition. Most people tend to believe heart disease is a condition other people have instead of them having the possible medical condition. The fact is heart disease is the leading killer in the United States. It is also the major cause for people to become disabled. There are many types of heart disease. The most common type is blockage of the arteries, which is the main blood vessel supplying blood to the heart. This type is called coronary heart disease. It is a gradual process of the blockages yet it is the major reason for heart attacks.Tip: Eat boiled eggs without the yolks. As nutrient rich as the yolk is, it also contains cholesterol and fat which will not coincide with your diet.The other types of heart diseases involve the valves in the heart where the heart has restricted pumping action leading to heart failure. Some people are born with this type of heart disease. It is possible to reduce the risks of heart disease by taking steps to control the factors causing the risks. The steps to reduce the risks are controlling the blood pressure, lower the cholesterol levels, do not smoke, get plenty of exercise, avoiding fatty and unhealthy foods and beverages, avoiding stressful situations as much as possible, and maintaining a healthy weight.Tip: A great tip for losing weight is to use a multivitamin. When we diet, we cut out many foods that have essential vitamins.Coronary arteriosclerosis (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease leading the deaths in the United Stated. It happens when the arteries supplying blood to the heart become hardened and narrowed due to the buildup of cholesterol and another material called plaque.

Causes And Complications Of Obesity

Andrew Wilson

There are numerous causes of obesity. It is a very complex and often chronic disease. Obesity is not the same as being overweight and it is most often not caused by overeating. Studies and research have shown that the most common factor in determining risks of obesity is genetics. People that suffer from morbid obesity often have a family history of weight problems and obesity. However, there are other factors that can increase the risk of obesity and make people more prone to it. Environmental factors often go hand in hand with genetic factors. If you are already dealing with genetic factors that are leading you towards a life of obesity, the lifestyle and environmental factors that are most common in America can make it nearly impossible to control your weight. Some environmental factors that impact the ability to control weight include fast food chains, living in a suburban area where you have to have a car to get around, and spending long days sitting at a desk. All of these factors can influence metabolism and the best use of fat storage within the body. People that suffer from morbid obesity cannot have anything less than a total environment change in order to be successful and get to a healthy weight.Tip: A great weight to get the weight off is tracking your caloric intake on a daily basis. If you can eliminate fatty foods, do it.Metabolism is another factor that figures in to obesity. It used to be a common belief that people could lose weight simply by burning calories and consuming less than what you were burning. It has now been proven that this is not the case for some people. Researchers that are studying obesity have started looking at a new theory that is known as the “set point.” This is like a gauge in the brain that prevents people from gaining or losing weight. If you attempt to bypass this gauge and significantly cut the intake of calories, you brain will the… Read more

Electronic Calorie Counter How To Become Fat Free

Andrew Wilson

Generally speaking, there’s nothing new under the sun when it comes to weight loss, but an electric calorie counter is changing all that. When you think about new stuff to help you lose weight, you’re probably thinking about vitamins and supplements, or maybe even new exercise equipment. What you are probably not thinking about is a computer.But that’s just what an electronic calorie counter is, a computer that will help you lose weight. In fact, it’s a computer that is designed to help you lose weight. And what’s more, it’ll actually do it, unlike all those so called weight loss supplements that only make your wallet lighter.Tip: You must make eating breakfast every day a part of your weight loss goal! Starting off your day with a healthy filling breakfast will help your metabolism regulate and will keep you from inappropriate snacking during the day. Having breakfast each day prevents your body from storing away calories excessively.What an electric calorie counter actually is a small computer, roughly the size of a small notebook, although not as thick, that can be easily carried in a pocket or purse and allows you to look up the caloric and nutritional content of thousands of foods. This alone would be helpful enough, but a good electric calorie counter will go beyond that with a diary function.Note that I said diary, not dairy, although a device that counts calories and produces cheese on demand would be nice, too. No, the diary function on electric calorie counter allows you to pick what foods you are eating and in what amount, and the counter will automatically record the food and calculate the amount of calories.Tip: Use your phone time to get in a little workout. Move around when you’re on the phone vs sitting down and talking.This is actually a huge help for most of us. For one thing, it’s general diet advice to keep a food diary. It’s also generally not … Read more

Weight Loss Water Pills Are Not The Answer

Andrew Wilson

If you are desperate to lose weight, you will have seen the weight loss water pills being advertised everywhere. These pills may help you to lose pounds in the short term but in the long term may cause serious health problems.The only way to cure a weight problem is by re-education.
