4 Ways to Prevent Heart Disease and Stroke

It’s always a good idea to think about your health and the preventative measures that you can take in order to live a healthy, happy and fulfilling life.

Two of the most common health problems are heart disease and strokes. Heart disease is fatal for over 600,000 per year in the United States, and almost 800,000 will suffer a stroke.

Therefore, it’s important to consider the changes that you could make in order to prevent heart disease and strokes.

1. Eating a healthy balanced diet

People have different ideas about what healthy means, with some people almost starving themselves in order to eat in a manner they believe is ‘healthy’.

Rather than focusing on eating less, focus on eating the right foods. Fruits and vegetables, whole grains and nuts are all great foods to add into your diet.

2. Cut down on red meat

If your diet consists of a large amount of meat or you eat meat at least once a day, you should consider cutting down on this.

It is recommended that you eat meat 3-4 times per week, but if you are more at risk of heart disease, it’s a good idea to cut down significantly on red meat, or cut it out of your diet completely and replace with oily fish or lean meats.

3. Exercise regularly

Moving your body regularly will help to combat a wide range of health problems, including heart disease and strokes. You don’t need to exercise rigorously every day in order for it to have a benefit.

You can start your day by doing some gentle stretches or yoga, or before dinner in the evening, take a stroll around your neighborhood.

If you have a weak heart or suffer from other health issues already, be careful when exercising and speak to your doctor beforehand. Exercising too strenuously could mean that you end up bringing on more health problems.

4. Watching what you drink

While many people concentrate on eating the right foods and cutting out the bad ones, it’s easy to underestimate the power of the beverages we select.

Sugary drinks contain just as much, if not more, sugar and unhealthy ingredients that can poison your body over time and go against all the other preventative measures you are taking for your health.

Cut out sugary drinks, including fruit juices with added sugars and sweeteners, and limit how much caffeine you drink in the form of coffee and other common beverages.
