In the interview, Prof. Carl “Chip” J. Lavie gave suggestions on daily exercise, shared impressive cases of cardiovascular disease (CVD) patients, gave professional explanations of weight management and CVD outcomes, etc. His major viewpoints are: (a) psychological stress is a major risk factor for CVDs, (b) a low-level physical activity contributes to a high prevalence of most CVD risk factors, and regular exercise training can improve cardiac function and aerobic performance, and (c) the prognosis and survival among CVD patients with low physical activity are better in the obese than the lean.
