At any age, you should be most afraid of convenience foods, sugary drinks, and fatty meat.
People most often die from heart disease. To protect yourself from heart disease as much as possible, it is important not only to lead a healthy lifestyle but also to adjust your diet at any age.
According to cardiologist Elena Aleshkovich, first of all, you should reduce the consumption of foods high in fat.
In particular, the cardiologist strongly advises replacing fatty meat with chicken, turkey, rabbit, or fish, as they do not contain much cholesterol. And also rely on cereals, vegetables and fruits, and vegetable oil.
It is also necessary to reduce the amount of sugar and salt in the diet.
“Studies have shown that the risk of myocardial infarction decreases in proportion to a decrease in salt intake,” Aleshkovich said.
She reminded me that “hidden sugar” and “hidden salt” are often present in ready-made products.
“You don’t see them and have no idea how much they are in the food,” the doctor said.
