Healthy Heart Diet Advice

1. Eat Better Fat

If your diet is usually high in fat, reduce your fat calories to about 30 percent of total calories. Also, reduce your intake of saturated fat from foods like red meat, meat products like sausage, salami, hot dogs, hamburgers, smoked meats and full-fat dairy products. In exchange, substitute healthy fats from heart-friendly foods like oily fish.

2. Eat Less Sodium

High sodium foods cause raised blood pressure (hypertension) which contributes to heart disease. So reduce your dietary intake of foods like, processed frozen entrees and processed cold cuts, foods canned in salted water, salted nuts, ketchups, package sauce mixes, processed cheese, margarine, butter and salted snacks like nuts. Use a range of fresh herbs for flavor in place of salt.

3. Choose Unrefined Low Glycemic Index Carbohydrates

Refined or high glycemic index carbs may contribute to heart disease. So reduce your consumption of foods like, cakes, cookies, pastries, muffins, donuts, Danish, ice-cream and candy. Many refined carb foods (even if low-glycemic index) are also high in fat and sugar, and should be avoided.

4. Eat Less High-Cholesterol Foods

Dietary cholesterol may also contribute to heart disease. So eat fewer egg yolks and less shrimp, liver and other organ meats.

Advice on Diets

Special diets or diet plans with special diet foods are sometimes needed for particular health conditions. Ask your doctor, dietitian or nutritionist about your personal dietary needs. Otherwise, a balanced diet program containing foods from all the nutritional food groups is best.
