Studies show that if you’re above a healthy body mass index (BMI), dropping just 5 to 10 percent of your excess weight can help improve your heart health. And if you’re one of the more than 93 million Americans who are obese, losing any amount of weight can often make a huge difference in your overall health.
Here’s how it works.
Find a doctor
If improving your heart health is one of the New Year’s resolutions that you intend to keep, talk to your doctor about how to meet your goals. You can find a Providence cardiologist using our provider directory. Or, you can search for a primary care doctor in your area.
