I just viewed the most profound video on Facebook which spurred this post The video portrays the evolution of heart disease and the causative effects of bad eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle from early childhood until adulthood. A shocking video, so watch at your own risk. The video spurred some emotion in me as my company, RXFitnesspros has a plethora of young to middle age clients with heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and orthopedic issues. Many of them have undergone Coronary Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery,have had strokes (CVA) and or on copious amounts of medicines to try to stabilize there particular health issue. Unfortunately taking prescription meds often come with a big price. Lots of side effects leading to lethargy, depression, low libido and weight gain. Is this the life you signed up for?
Unfortunately, early heart disease is a grim reality which todays youth are now facing. Consuming processed foods laden with high sugar, fat, sodium and cholesterol is a huge problem. The youth of today are making almost no effort to eat clean and healthy. They claim to be too busy. Is this the sign of progress or regression in America?
According to the American Heart Association 787,000 Americans died from Heart disease or stroke in 2011, That’s equivalent to 1 out of every 3 deaths in America. About 2,150 Americans die every day from heart disease or about 1 person every 40 seconds.. Sad but true, cardiovascular disease claims more lives than all types of cancers combined..
The causative life factors are 1. Smoking 2. Inactivity 3. Unhealthy eating habits,
So what can be done to reverse the negative ramifications of unhealthy behaviors?
1. Make a decision to change or die.
2. Seek help from a professionals who excels at changing unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. A nutritionist, personal fitness trainer, a medical exercise specialist, and perhaps a physician to monitor your internal medical health progress periodically.
