Obesity is a significant health problem in the United States, affecting
close to one-third of all adults. Although genetics can play a role in the
likelihood that a person will become obese, the condition occurs when the
amount of calories consumed exceeds the amount of calories expended over a
long period of time. Excess calories are stored as fat in the body, and
with long-term caloric excess, an individual eventually becomes obese.
Exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet are ways in which to combat
obesity.

Benefits of Regular Exercise

.

Regular exercise (and proper nutrition) can help reduce body fat as well
as protect against chronic diseases associated with obesity. If you are
looking for a reason to start an exercise program, listed below are five
of the many benefits of regular physical activity.

.

Exercise lowers risk for chronic diseases Concerned about heart disease?
Regular exercise is a proven way to decrease risk for these and other
chronic diseases. It will help to prevent or manage high blood pressure.
It also raises high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, known as the
good cholesterol, and lowers low density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad
cholesterol. This combination will decrease the amount of harmful plaques
that can buildup on your artery walls and keep blood flowing smoothly.
Regular exercise can also help prevent type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and
certain cancers.
