Cardiac Risks of obesity

I am 335lbs,a high risk cardiac, on simvastatin, low salt, low fat diet. How much and what kind of exercises are best for me. U am high energy, and want to be around awhile 

The best way forward is to calculate your risk for heart disease. Next, get a stress ECHO. This test looks at your heart function while exercising. From there, get involved with any kind of aerobic activity, knowing what your abilities are.
Unlike what is often said (including in the following article), exercise for obesity requires at least 1 hour/day, 3-5 times weekly for any meaningful results.
Good luck
Dr T
