7 Common Heart Disease Myths You Should STOP Believing
Improving your diet
Regardless if you’ve already been diagnosed with a form of cardiovascular disease or not, adopting the right diet can prevent complications in the long run.
But with so many foods and misleading advertisements, how can you know for sure which foods are truly beneficial for your heart?
When it comes to whole foods, here are the ones specialists all over the world swear by:
- Fatty fish (salmon, tuna)
- Dark chocolate (yay!)
- Leafy greens (spinach, collard greens, kale)
- Whole grains
I want to pause for a second here and talk about whole grains because too many people get fooled. Many packaged products like bread or cereal have labels such as ‘Made with whole grains’ which can be a huge trap. How?
Unfortunately, many advertisers add a very small portion of whole grains into a product and then make you think it’s very healthy. You can read more about this topic in my in-depth post about bread right here.
