Losing Weight CAUSES Heart Disease?
Many doctors will tell you that one of the best ways to avoid heart disease is to maintain a healthy weight.
So, if you’re overweight, you might be looking for a quick way to shed the pounds to protect your heart.
But be careful.
Not all diets are beneficial.
And if you follow one in particular you could be shooting yourself in the foot.
Because instead of protecting your heart… it could be increasing your risk of heart disease.
Losing weight isn’t the problem.
The problem is that most people don’t keep the weight off.
In fact, up to 80 percent of people start to put weight on in less than a year, and often gain back at least half of what they’ve lost within two years.
And then the pattern begins: losing and regaining… losing and regaining.
In other words: yo-yo dieting. It’s really hard on your heart.
A new mouse study revealed that in addition to decreasing heart function, it increased the likelihood of developing heart disease.
This confirms studies in humans showing that yo-yo dieting hurts your metabolism, disrupts your hormones, and negatively impacts organ function.
For example, weight fluctuations increase the stress hormone cortisol, surging your inflammation and heart disease risk.
Most fad diets—or diets that promise fast weight loss—fail in the end.
So rather than worrying about dieting, I have a better idea.
Forget dieting altogether.
Instead, make small, manageable changes to your eating.
Stop eating after dinner.
Then cut out sugary drinks.
Then switch out chips for something healthy, like walnuts, pumpkin seeds, or baby carrots.
Do one baby step at a time until it becomes your new normal. And continue adding in new steps.
The results won’t be quick… but they’re more likely to be lasting.
And those are the best results for your weight… and your heart.
P.S. There is a popular health food trend that could help reduce your heart disease risk. It didn’t start with doctors or the medical community… but with millennials. Click here to find out what it is.
