There are certain risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as family history, that you can do little about.
Nevertheless, there are still many things that you can do to change your risk of developing heart disease, or indeed reduce your risk of further problems if you have already been diagnosed with a heart problem. Making small but positive changes to your diet and lifestyle really can make a big difference to your ‘modifiable risk factors’.
Eating well can help you to:
Eating well does not mean excluding all of your favourite foods, and it certainly doesn’t mean living on salads! Eating well simply means nourishing your body with the correct balance of nutrients it needs for optimal health.
Rebalancing and ‘cleaning up’ your diet to include healthy fats, good carbohydrates, sufficient protein and plenty of vitamins, minerals and hydration will not only help to reduce your risk of heart disease, but will improve your physical and mental wellbeing, making you feel significantly better too!
