Well, one common problem that hounds as today is the fact that many people are getting fat. Yes, obesity or being overweight has risen in the last few years. The sad thing about it is that obesity can lead to heart disease.

We all know that heart disease which leads to heart attack is the number one killer disease right now. It is really important to control our weight so as to lessen the risk of acquiring a heart disease and eventually suffering from a heart attack.

Risk Factors For Heart Disease

Before going into the reasons to becoming fat... take note of the following risk factors for heart disease. Under the controllable category you will notice that being overweight is one of them:

  • hypertension
  • high cholesterol
  • lack of physical activity
  • smoking
  • excessive coffee intake
  • diabetes

As you may have notice, the first few risk factors are somewhat related to obesity. If you take in to much food high in cholesterol you will surely go fat. Along with lack of physical activity, fats will be stored in our body and eventually led to hypertension, heart disease and worst case scenario a heart attack.

Now that you know the reason, I believe its time to do something. All it takes is self control. The time you learn how to control is the time you will succeed. Many people fail in this aspect and this is the reason why they continue to get fat. Though easier said than done but that is what you should do.
