To reduce your chance of having heart disease in your life, we recommend starting a Mediterranean diet.
The Mediterranean diet can reduce your chances of experiencing heart attacks, strokes, and heart disease by 30 percent.
A Mediterranean diet consists of the following food products that lower risk factors for high cholesterol. hypertension, and obesity:
-Nuts (walnuts, almonds, and hazelnuts)
The Mediterranean diet is not about sticking to low-fat diets. Most people find sticking to low fat diets challenging. The Mediterranean diet is about maintaining good health.
At least an ounce of nuts should be consumed a day. You should have three servings of fruit every day and two servings of vegetables.
Consume fish at least 3 times a week with beans, peas and lentils. If you are not a fish lover, go for white meat rather than read meat.
As for beverages, we recommend seven glasses of wine a week and two glasses of lemon water a day.
