Leading a Heart-healthy Lifestyle
A heart-healthy diet and preventive care go hand-in-hand, more than you might realize. Although many foods are good for your heart, a suitable place to start is by incorporating enough fruits and vegetables into your daily diet. A heart-healthy diet includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, fish, poultry, and vegetable oils. It also limits red and processed meats and refined carbohydrates.
You'll also benefit from avoiding foods and drinks with added sugar and sodium, plus foods and beverages with trans fat. You can lower your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and other harmful medical conditions by leading a heart-healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and physical activity. Heart-healthy eating habits can also ensure you receive the nutrients your body requires.
Don't Wait Until You're Sick to Get Well
Maintaining good health, protecting your family, and preventing diseases early on when they're most treatable require routine checkups and preventive healthcare. It doesn't always follow that someone is internally healthy just because they appear to be on the outside. You must address the issue before it arises rather than wait until something adverse occurs.
