As we know, diet is of great importance to our well-being and health. And a diet that promotes heart health reduces the risk of developing an arterial disease, coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cerebrovascular disease. A healthy diet also lowers blood pressure and blood cholesterol, and best of all supports weight management. A healthy diet also helps the rehabilitation of an already ill person.
What kind of diet promotes heart well-being?
Above all, a heart-friendly diet is varied and rich in nutrients. A fully healthy diet is high in fiber and contains the right proportions of fruits and vegetables and enough complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats. The amount of salt and sugar should be kept moderate.
A heart-friendly diet has overall positive effects - when the body receives the right amount of energy, protective nutrients, and the proper consumption and intake of energy, weight management is also easy. A healthy diet also affects cholesterol and blood pressure and reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes.
We should not forget to exercise to increase our overall well-being. It's never too late to start an active lifestyle. Exercising for at least 30 minutes a day has a positive effect on our health. Heart-friendly exercise is an endurance exercise that burdens large muscle groups. In addition, it is essential to exercise your muscle strength.
If changing your diet feels difficult at first, try a meal plan at the beginning. Custom meal plans are a great and easy way to know what and how much to eat. I can warmly recommend our 7-day healthy heart custom meal plan diet or Mediterranean custom meal plan diet. They are both heart-friendly diets, and we tailor them to your needs. Don't struggle alone!
Optimizing your diet and increasing your activity, you not only promote your heart health but ensure lifestyle change becoming lasting!
