Food to avoid for heart patients

in HEALTH REPUBLIC23 days ago

Hi friends, I hope you all are well. In this post I am going to tell you about food to avoid for heart patients.
Unhealthy fats
Limiting how much saturated and trans fats you eat is an important step to reduce your blood cholesterol and lower your risk of coronary artery disease.
Processed meats
Processed meats are those preserved using salts, nitrites, or other preservatives. They include hot dogs, bacon, sausage, salami, and other deli meats, including deli ham, turkey, bologna, and chicken.
Highly refined and processed grains and carbohydrates
Refined or processed foods include white bread, white rice, low-fiber breakfast cereals, sweets and sugars, and other refined or processed carbohydrates.
Canned Vegetables
Veggies may be a cornerstone of a blood-pressure-friendly diet, but not the ones that come out of a can. The preservatives and sauces that keep the vitamin-filled veggies company inside the container are packed with sodium.
Soft drinks and other sugary drinks
Most of the increase is from sugary drinks, especially sodas, sweetened fruit drinks, and sports drinks. A 12-ounce can of soda contains the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of table sugar.
Tomato Sauce
To keep your blood pressure from spiking, look for jars of tomato sauce with fewer than 350 milligrams per half-cup serving.
I hope you all enjoy this informative post. Thanks!
