By Cynthia Thaik, M.D.

Let’s not beat around the bush, the simple act of owning a fitness tracker is not going to automatically improve your heart health and weight loss goals. However, research shows that if you have some of the basic 16 desires for heart health and weight loss, you may be closer to achieving your goals.

16 Desires for Heart Health and Weight Loss

  • Acceptance
  • Curiosity
  • Eating
  • Family
  • Status
  • Honor
  • Idealism
  • Independence
  • Order
  • Physical Activity
  • Power
  • Romance
  • Saving
  • Social Contact
  • Tranquility
  • Vengeance

Of course, the key to achieving your heart health and weight loss goals starts with changing your behaviors and actions. You need to set realistic expectations and understand that getting fit and feeling good are achieved in incremental steps. There are no quick fixes.
