Learn How One Heart Disease Patient Changed His Diet

Last updated 4 years ago

Heart disease is a largely avoidable condition. As this video demonstrates, healthy eating habits can be both easy to maintain and effective for heart disease prevention.

Because heart disease often results from the consumption of high-calorie, high-sodium, and high-fat foods, making nutritious meals is integral to protecting your heart and vascular system from hypertension and high cholesterol. Fruits and vegetables are great food options, so take steps to include them in every meal. For instance, have a bowl of berries for breakfast or a salad for lunch. Lean proteins can also contribute toward a heart-healthy diet. Fish and chicken in particular can prove filling, delicious, and nutritious.
