According to Julia Valentour, program coordinator for the American Council on Exercise, there are many chronic diseases associated with obesity, including cardiovascular disease; several types of cancer, including colon, endometrial, breast and prostate; high blood pressure; muscular-skeletal problems; diabetes; stroke; and metabolic syndrome. Physical inactivity also can contribute to osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, liver and gall bladder diseases, sleep apnea, gynecological problems, as well as anxiety and depression.
Not a cheery forecast.
But on the flip side, exercise offers so many incredible benefits, according to Valentour, “including a reduced risk of many chronic diseases, improved cardiovascular health, lower blood pressure, better cholesterol profiles, decreased depression and anxiety, and overall wellness and better cognitive function.â€
She added studies consistently have shown that people who work out live an average of two to four years longer than those who don’t.
Valentour added the first step is to make sure you’re healthy enough to exercise. “Check with your doctor first if you have cardiovascular, pulmonary or metabolic diseases or risk factors for these diseases,†she said. “You may need to be on a medically supervised exercise program.â€
“The main thing is that you have to expend more calories than you take in,†said Valentour, “and that will create a negative caloric balance that will result in weight loss.†She recommended visiting to get the lowdown on what a healthy diet should include or work with a registered dietitian to overhaul your diet.
And make sure you don’t bite off more than you burn calorically. A slip of the lip does lead to a generously padded hip. Valentour recalls a former student who was perplexed by her inability to lose weight. Valentour asked her what her daily diet look liked, and the student said she started each day with a large vanilla latte. The student was blissfully unaware that daily latte cost her 300-plus calories. Morale to this story: Be conscious of not only what you eat, but also what you drink. Alcoholic beverages and sodas, too, can thwart you in your quest to create that negative caloric balance.
Although we inevitably want the pounds to melt off like a winter thaw, remember that slowly losing weight is the healthiest way. Patience is a virtue in this arena, and Valentour suggests losing no more than one to two pounds a week.
Valentour is no-nonsense in her advice: “Don’t make excuses to skip exercise.
