Waist measurement is a good indicator of abdominal fat which is one predictor for developing heart disease.
Coronary heart disease can be reduced by 6 percent with just a small reduction in resting diastolic blood pressure. Walking programs, as demonstrated in various research studies, have reduced blood pressure resting levels, systolic (upper number) and diastolic (lower number). Did you know 20 minutes of brisk walking burns 100 calories and 30 minutes burns 150 calories?
