A fat risk for metabolic syndrome

The sad fact is that over 69% of Americans over 20 are either overweight or obese and a full 34% of US adults now suffer from metabolic syndrome. Metabolic Syndrome is a state of chronic low grade inflammation that results from surplus energy intake, sedentary lifestyles and our ever-increasing obesity rates. Even if you are just barely in the risk categories for metabolic syndrome, you are at a high risk for heart disease, diabetes, stroke, kidney problems, blood clots, reduced insulin production, and dementia disorders. Metabolic Syndrome confers a 5-fold increase in risk for type 2 diabetes; a 2-fold the risk for developing cardiovascular disease; up to a quadruple increased risk of stroke; another quadruple risk for heart attack; a 56% increased risk of cancer mortality and a whopping double-your-risk of dying from any health-related cause. Bottom line, metabolic syndrome is mostly about diet and lifestyle and can easily be reversed. Losing excess weight is one of the biggies for saving your life from metabolic consternation and ruin. Weight loss IMO is 80% diet and 20% exercise. Diet is more about what you eat and less about how much you eat.
