Being a healthy weight with a sedentary lifestyle is putting a person at the same risk of cardiovascular disease as an overweight person.

” Our study demonstrates that a sedentary lifestyle counters the benefit of being at a normal weight when it comes to heart disease risk”

Said Arch Mainous from the University of Florida.

 

“Achieving a body mass index in the normal range should not give people a false sense of confidence that they are in good health. If you are not exercising, you are not doing enough”    Mainous said.

The study published in the American journal of cardiology found that 30% of U.S Adults at a normal weight are at increased risk of heart attack or stroke.
