Diet for Healthy Heart

I don’t know why my couple hubs have health topics. But I have good reason for this. As we know health is the important aspect in our life. This is like like long term investment. I thought a lot of money is useless if we got sick, right. So, I never get bored to share health news to all of you.

One key for the healthy heart is good nutrition. Diet for a healthy heart is important for heart health. A healthy lifestyle and diet is the best weapon to fight cardiovascular disease. That’s why many people confuse to choose the best nutrition for healthy heart and make the heart stay to pump the blood. If we talk about heart disease, maybe we only think about how to stay away the “fat”, right. This also happen to my father, because he didn’t want to keep his health very well. After ate the food which contain “fat” he felt something wrong with his heart. That’s a reason why I write this hub. I heard that life experience is the easiest way to write and make us easy to express our feeling based the life experience, right. Actually we need fat substance to balance our daily food. We can found the fat substance in meat, ice cream, candy, Mashed potatoes (if the processing process using the cream and butter), potato chips, processed meat, cashew nuts, chocolate, fast food, cereal and milk.

The sad part is there are many myths outside with unreasonable information about healthy eating for heart health. Therefore, it is not surprising that many people are confused about the different types of fat. I am sure that you have many questions about milk, meat and sodium.

With all the different opinions, it is wise to get the information and educate yourself from credible sources. You make smart choices in your diet and long-term benefits for your health, especially for your heart. It’s like a car, our heart has a function as a machine. We can imagine when the machine was stopped to run or when the heart was stopped to pump the blood. The important things with many choices in front of us, we must good in selection.

Why diet for healthy heart is important

You may eat a lot of foods everyday, but your system may not get all the essential nutrients to become healthy.  Sometimes we can found many foods that are packed with nutrients minerals, vitamins, fiber and other nutrients but lower in calories and fat. To get the maximum result from the food you eat , you must  make smart choices such as grain products, fruits, low-fat dairy products and you can eat more vegetables. I strongly recommend you to add various kinds of nutritious from your daily foods. Here are some tips on what should be included in heart healthy diet:

1. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables are contain with minerals, vitamins and fiber

This is not a secret that fruit and vegetables useful for our health, very good for fat destruction. Good eating pattern also need this substance. I heard that heart disease related with obesity. By consume a variety of vegetables and fruits will help your goals to achieve and maintain a healthy weight and to regulate your blood pressure. If you want to maintain a healthy weight, eating vegetables and fruits is the right choice. Heart also well maintained.

2. Select food which contain pure wheat and packed with fiber

These foods can help lower your blood cholesterol levels, this will help you felt full. It will help you to keep your weight at healthy levels. Oatmeal is one of pure wheat product. Healthy food which are contain of omega-3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium. Superfood which rich of fiber has a function to lowering LDL levels (or bad cholesterol) and it help to maintain healthy arteries.

Add fish in your menu at least twice a week

Recent research has shown that consuming fish that have omega-3 fats will help minimize the risk of death for coronary heart disease.  It has been well documented since the first report in the early 1970s, by Dr. Jorn Dyerberg and colleagues and published in the journal The Lancet and The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Omega-3 that contain DHA and EPA, have extensive links with health benefits including reduced risk of heart disease, improve blood pressure, heart rate and improve blood vessel function.

prasetio!! Well this is an excellent hub written by someone like you that has the BIGGEST heart of all!!!! We must keep your wonderful HEART healthy and ours too!!! ha

VERY informative and well written hub. I think it is important to go back to simple healthy eating......fruits and vegetables and protein with low fat. I always tell people to make a protein shake with lots of fruit in it...this is the easiest way to sneak healthy foods into your diet when you do not have time. You can add supplements, healthy oils and fiber to it too. Also yogurt is good. I can go on and on! I have rated this up my friend!!!

To a healthy future!!!!!!! G

Wonderful hub Prasetio, lots of good information for us to follow. We need to get back to the healthy basics instead of all the processed and packaged imitation food with dishonest labeling. God did not give us preserved, coloured, freeze dried. gas ripened or steroid loaded food. Just good fresh unadulterated foods in the garden.

Peace and Blessings

Great advice and although my mother died of a heart attack it was because of medicines the nursing home gave her not her heart from diet. Her cardiologist said she had the heart of a teenager and she did watch her diet and every morning she ate oatmeal almost always while she was still at home for as many years as I can remember.

It took me until i was thirty to really think about my diet. My wife Linda is a wonderful Chef, cook isn't a suitable enough word. She is very versatile and we have all sorts of food from most countries of the world. I can cook too, but with one daughter still at home who is also a great Chef it's best if i put the garbage out, sort out the laundry and fix the house up. Your hub is a wonderful guide for anyone who realises that their food intake is not as healthy as they would like it to be. Cheers prasetio and keep up the good work
