When you put on excess weight, especially around your waistline, this fat ends up producing toxic chemicals that cause inflammation within your body.

Researchers are increasingly finding that it is this chronic, low-level inflammation that triggers heart disease.

Obesity also contributes to other dangerous conditions that hike heart disease risk, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. For these reasons, being overweight is the worst thing you can do for your heart.

Few people realize that simply by eating the right kind of diet, you will not only lose weight, but also reduce your cholesterol, enabling you to reverse heart disease.

If you have very high cholesterol, been diagnosed with heart disease, or had a heart attack in the past, you need to lose weight fast. You have no time to lose, because the next heart attack may kill you.
