Roughly 1 out of every 4 deaths in the United States is related to heart disease. And every year, over 700,000 Americans experience a heart attack. Medical conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity put people more at risk for heart disease. You can make moves and help prevent heart disease simply by making healthier choices.
To eat for better heart health, your fridge and pantry should be stocked with plenty of heart-healthy, nutritious foods. Fruits, vegetables, and lean protein—like fish and chicken—are great starting points, but from there, the supermarket aisles can get a little more confusing. Doctors recommend limiting high-sodium fare and unhealthy fats, such as processed or fast foods. These can lead to high cholesterol and increase your risk of heart disease or stroke. Pick low-fat sources of protein, such as poultry, salmon, or bison. Load up on vitamin-rich, plant-based foods, like spinach, tomatoes, and bananas. Cut out that white bread and switch to a whole-grain option with no added sugar.
The key takeaway? Think about all the foods you can eat in order to set yourself up for success and maximize your heart health.
