Bill Clinton Skips Fast Food After Having A High Blood Pressure Scare by Scott Davis

by: Scott Davis

No one would argue that being president of the United States is a stressful job. Furthermore, one would imagine that the president is always on the go and always busy. No one would argue either that often the first thing to go with this lifestyle is good eating habits, healthy living routines, and exercise.

Fast Food Delivery

At the age of 58, Bill Clinton was seemingly in good health. He had no known history of heart disease or heart problems. And yet, in 2001, a medical report indicated that his cholesterol was above a normal level and his blood pressure was bordering on high. This did not come as a huge surprise to those who knew his eating habits during his presidency. Clinton was known for his consumption of fast food, and he became all too aware of how that had caught up with him.

He said that 'Some of this is genetic, and I may have done some damage in those years when I was too careless about what I ate, so for whatever reason, I've got a problem, and I've got a chance to deal with it."

In 2004, he did undergo a bye pass operation. As he want to prolong with it. Clinton chose to do exercise regularly, having good balanced diet and he changed his way of living to lead a healthy life.

How Exercise Can Reduce Cholesterol?

It will also affect the heart making more damage as it can be broken off due to the formation of cholesterol into the valves. If the cholesterol level in our blood pathway is found to be more, it will cause some problem. As larger quantity of cholesterol cannot be absorbed in the bloodstream, it forms block in the bloodstream all over the body.

Exercise helps for three reasons.

Cholesterol can be controlled by doing exercise regularly as they will reduce over weight and maintaining the weight. It is necessary to lead a healthy life.
