What do you need to include in your diet, if you want it to be more heart-healthy? Doctors recommend these three points:
- Eat “good” fats rather than saturated and trans-fat containing foods.
- Eat plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids, which come from fish and nuts
- Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains.
These three strategies, along with physical activity, not smoking and maintaining a healthy body weight, can prevent many of the cardiovascular diseases in our culture today.
