7 Tips for a Healthy Heart

7 Tips for a Healthy Heart

If you are concerned about your heart’s health, it is important for you to make some dietary modifications. Simple changes in your everyday diet may offer benefits, which help in preventing future heart problems. If you suffer from high blood pressure or high cholesterol or have atrial fibrillation.

Here are some tips regarding the best diet for protecting your heart:

  1. Believe in the food hype: Having healthy meals is certainly beneficial and makes a big difference to your heart health. Consuming meals which contain vegetables, grains, low fat dairy and lean meat will allow you to live a longer and healthier life.
  2. Avoid crash diets: A crash diet may be effective, if you want to fit in a dress within one month. However, for improving your heart health, undertaking different fad diets is not useful. Meals in which a certain type of nutrients such as carbohydrates or fats are ruled out are not beneficial as well. You should have a sensible approach towards your diet and focus on food products such as vegetables, whole grains and lean meat.
  3. Do not overeat: Overeating will lead to weight gain and commonly, many people get heart attack after taking a big meal.
  4. Eat less salt: You should consume less amount of salt in your diet and do not eat more than one teaspoon of salt a day. Avoid any food item which contains high amounts of sodium. Salt is responsible for increasing blood pressure.
  5. Limit your intake of alcohol and caffeine: In case you suffer from atrial fibrillation, you should avoid caffeine and any other stimulant as they tend to trigger the symptoms. You must drink moderately as consuming more than one drink a day increases your risks of having heart problems.
  6. Choose meat wisely: You should avoid red meat, which contains large amount of saturated fats as these are not good for the heart. You should choose the leanest cuts of meats and trim all fat from it. You should opt for cuts such as flank, rump roast, tenderloin and sirloin. Pork tenderloin, chicken and turkey breast are other alternatives.
  7. Add fish to your diet: Fish is essential for improving your heart health. Try to avoid having deep fried fish and choose grilled fish or roasted fish, which are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Consume fishes like tuna, salmon, trout and sardines.

You should also add whole grains to your diet. They are effective in controlling blood sugar and lower the chances of diabetes. Hence, the risks of heart diseases are less if you do not have diabetes. Whole grains also help with weight loss, which is beneficial for the heart. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

My father iz 55 years old. He smokes and drinks a lot and is suffering from high cholesterol.
Treatment for high cholesterol is lipid lowering drugs. But it is prudent to rather treat the cause than the effect. Which means if he avoids alcohol eats low fat diet and exercises regularly he might not need to take medicines.

I am srinivas Rao I have coming chest pain you don't know why will come that Paine tell me doctors.
Chest pain can arise from many sources. 1. Muscles/bones/cartilages 2. Nerves supplying chest 3. Lungs and its cocering 4. Heart and its covering 5. Acidity 6. Liver and gall bladder 7. Food pipe and windpipe disrases in all these can lead to chest pain. So chest pain does not always mean heart attack. A doctor can identify the source depending upon nature of pain, other risk factors, analyzing reports and by clinical examination.

1) Regarding your BP, the discrepancy can be due to 2 reasons, one that your machine is not caliberated, so get it checked once or that you have white coat hypertension, which happens due to anxiety of being in a hospital or with a doctor. If your machine is fine and you only have BP on visiting a doctor or hospital, you need not be on any medication. 2) despite being on Atorvastatin, your lipid profile is still deranged, so you need to be on diet, exercise as well as lifestyle precautions for sure. 3) Reduced sugar, carbohydrate and fatty, fried food from diet, change your eating habits. Consult a dietician for details. 4) start exercising or yoga. The target needs to be 30-40 mins of brisk walk daily, to be built up gradually. 5) Quit smoking and drinking if you do. Get yourself evaluated for Diabetes and thyroid. Repeat your lipid profile after 4-6 weeks again.

Hi lybrate-user Set goals– Its important to set a goal to reach the goal, without a specific goal in mind you do not reach anywhere Have a plan -Before beginning your journey towards healthy weight , have a plan ready to follow and try to follow it as much as you can. Chew food well– Half of the digestion happens in your mouth, when food mixes well with your saliva, teeth are there for chewing food well, don’t just gulp your food down the throat, few not well digested can also lead to gaining weight Eat slowly, eat mindfully– Eating slowly and giving attention to what you eat helps you to digest your food well and also helps you enjoy the process of eating Eat vegetables with every meal- It is important to include vegetables in form of salads, soups or sabji with every meal, vegetables are good sources of vitamins and minerals plus are low in calories, it helps give feeling of satiety. Eat protein with every meal– Protein are important part of our diet, they help increase our metabolism and also help to repair wear and tear of body muscles. A diet with required amount of lean proteins aids in weight loss Cook at home– Avoid outside foods, they are high in not so good fats, colours, salt and preservatives. Learn to read labels – It is very important to know what goes into the food you eat, some of the things, like hidden fats and sugars can infact make you overweight Avoid foods with high salt content – They may lead to water retention Start eating healthy not dieting– Choose your foods well, learn what is good for you and your body and what is not Love your body- It has been working to keep you working day and night, it needs good attention from you too. Give it real and nourishing foods Sleep well- Lack of sleep leads to gaining weight Keep stress at bay– Being stress can be one of the reason for weight gain. Do not be discouraged , weight loss takes time and quick fixes are not long lasting Never lose sight of your goal. Avoid drinking calories – Avoid drinks high in sugars and calories. Exercise Regularly Do not binge eat after diet slip ups– We are all humans and are subject to err, its natural to slip up sometimes, but that does not mean we fail, we can get back to eating healthy the next moment. Last but not the least- Get up and follow now what you have read. Wish you good luck.

Hi. Heart related chest pain is very rare in your age group. And as you said, if you are feeling that your heart beats are irregular, you should do a ecg. It will tell us weather it is really related to heart or it is just sensations. Take care.

The exact causes of high blood pressure are not known, but several factors and conditions may play a role in its development, including: smoking. Being overweight or obese. Lack of physical activity. Too much salt in the diet. Too much alcohol consumption (more than 1 to 2 drinks per day) stress. Older age. Genetics. Better is to avoid alcohol and cigarette smoking as both are injurious to health, maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water, go for regular exercise, homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you great results in curbing this problem.
