HOW TO CONTROL YOUR CHOLESTEROL!

23/06/2022

DID YOU KNOW?

23/06/2022

If you were to walk into a room of women and ask if they considered themselves overweight, chances are a majority would be unsatisfied with their size. But when it comes to heart disease, we’re not talking about trying to fit into your skinny jeans.

When we say overweight or obese, it’s not about aesthetics. It’s about carrying excess weight to the point of straining your heart and raising your blood pressure, LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and lowering your HDL (good) cholesterol, increasing your risk for diabetes.

Our bodies are made up of water, fat, protein, carbohydrates and vitamins and minerals. And if we have too much fat — especially if we’re carrying it primarily in the waist — the risk for heart disease issues goes up. That’s why it’s important to know your Body Mass Index (BMI), a numerical value of your weight in relation to your height.

Your BMI is a good indicator of whether you’re at a healthy or unhealthy weight. Here’s how it breaks down:

Underweight: Less than 18.5
Healthy weight: Less than 25
Overweight: Between 25 and 29.9
Obese: 30 or higher is considered obese.
To calculate your exact BMI value, multiply your weight in pounds by 703, divide by your height in inches, then divide again by the same number (height in inches).

The good news is, losing as few as 10 pounds can lower your heart disease risk.

The dreaded weight loss journey
It’s easy to start a diet. Sticking to it? Not so much. And even though we’ve all done it in the past, it’s never wise to follow a fad diet that drastically limits your food choices. You didn’t gain weight overnight, and you shouldn’t try to lose it all in the blink of an eye either. It simply isn’t healthy, or sustainable.

Here are few tips to help you get started:

Decide how to handle temptation. When you’re offered calorie-rich foods, turn them down nicely, but firmly. And try to dine at places where there are healthy options.
Be mindful of serving sizes. Eat slowly, take smaller portions and avoid seconds.
Cook foods in ways that help remove fat. Try baking, boiling, broiling, grilling, roasting or stewing. Don’t fry foods in oil.
Learn to decode nutrition labels. Avoid foods that are high in sugar, saturated fat, trans fat and calories.
Drink lots of water. And try to limit alcohol and other high-calorie drinks.
Keeping extra weight off can be as challenging as losing it. Many things will tempt you to go back to your old habits. And it takes commitment to stick to your new, healthy lifestyle. Just remember that when you do, you will have greater self-control, feel stronger, have better eating habits and fewer mood swings, and be in better shape.

And remember: Eating smart doesn’t mean dieting. It means eating certain foods in smaller amounts and eating high-calorie and high-fat foods less often. Your heart will thank you.

If you smoke, you’re likely aware that you’re not doing your body any favors. But you do it because you like to, and it gives you a rush. And even if you want to, it’s hard to give up. Even doctors who profess the evils of smoking are smokers themselves. That’s how addictive it is.

Despite all of the reasons why you enjoy smoking, the fact remains that you’re hurting your body. In fact, a pack of ci******es includes a warning label that says: Warning: I can increase irritability, impatience, hostility, anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, restlessness, decreased heart rate, appetite or weight gain. And that’s just the beginning.

Ni****ne alters the balance of chemicals in your brain so that each time you inhale it, it makes you feel relaxed, less stressed and wanting more. So what happens when you try to cut back? It makes you feel bad, hitting you hard with headaches, lethargy, lightheadedness and a downright lousy mood. Is it any wonder that so many people become addicted?

It’s time to listen to your heart

What does smoking actually do to your body that puts you at risk for heart disease? It may surprise you to learn that smoking increases the risk of heart disease and stroke by 2 to 4 times. Also, women who smoke have a 25 percent higher risk of developing heart disease as compared to men who smoke. And continuing to smoke throughout your life shaves 13-14 years off of it. So, despite beliefs to the contrary, smoking doesn’t just cause a risk for lung cancer.

Here’s a look at how smoking damages your heart:

Ni****ne makes your heart rate and blood pressure skyrocket.

Carbon monoxide and to***co rob your heart, brain and arteries of oxygen.

It damages your blood vessels and makes your blood sticky – a recipe for blood clots.

It lowers your tolerance for physical activity and decreases HDL (good) cholesterol.

If you take oral contraceptives it increases your blood pressure and risk for stroke and heart attack.
According to Dr. Clyde Yancy, professor and chief of the division of cardiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, smoking damages every tissue and organ in your body. These include your heart, lungs, mouth, throat, kidneys, cervix and pancreas. And nonsmokers who have high blood pressure or high cholesterol have an even greater risk of developing heart disease when they’re exposed to secondhand smoke.

If that’s not enough, puff on this: there are 4,000 chemical components found in ci******es and at least 250 of them are harmful to human health. We’re talking about chemicals used to manufacture rubber, preserve wood, make batteries, pave driveways and roads and make nuclear reactors. That’s what’s going into your body every time you inhale. Still surprised it causes heart disease?

The good news is that when you stop smoking, your risk for heart disease and stroke can be cut in half just one year later and continues to decline until it’s as low as a nonsmoker’s risk. It’s time to take action and fight for your health, and the health of the women you love.

As we close off the HYPERTENSION MONTH, we are taking your HEART ❤️ to a JUMP ROPE 🏆challenge!! 🤸🏻‍♂️🤸🏻‍♂️🤸🏿‍♀️

Challenge:
How many skips can you do in 1 minute?! 🤩

“Jumping rope will cause an increase in heart rate and breathing similar to if you went jogging. If you were to do ten minutes of jump rope everyday, you would create adaptations to your body that are BENEFICIAL to cardiovascular health, such as LOWERING BLOOD PRESSURE and reducing resting heart rate. “❤️
