At some time in your life, you may be faced with a serious diagnosis that can be managed but that won't go away, like Steven. Steven has been diagnosed with heart disease and high cholesterol. In fact, he has undergone angioplasty at an early age. He was careful to change his eating plan to a low-fat diet, he took his medications regularly and had check-ups exactly as planned. He discussed some side-effects of the medications with his doctor, and together they found new treatments that work better for him. But he never exercised…didn't like it, wouldn't do it.
Recently, he began riding the bike with his wife. They now go on 25-mile outings, and he's added weight training to his weekly plan to increase his strength and stamina. He's losing fat and feeling better. His weight is dropping to a better, more manageable level.
“I feel like I'm living younger, I have more energy, and I look forward to healthy meals instead of focusing on what I'm missing. Exercise and seeing improvements that were measurable made all the difference in my outlook, my commitment, and my intentions,” says Steven.
