Four Heart-Healthy Diet Changes

Cut the Fatty Meat – Red meat such as beef is high in unhealthy fats. Try eating fish at least twice a week to improve overall cholesterol and lower blood pressure.

Remove the Saturated Fat –Cut back on butter and use oils packed with heart-healthy compounds like olive oil.

Grab the Grains – Remember this simple rule: always choose brown over white when it comes to grains. Brown rice and bread can provide you with the fiber and vitamins necessary to keep your heart healthy by decreasing cholesterol and blood pressure.

Load Up on Fruit & Veggies –These nutrient-rich foods decrease cholesterol, blood pressure and help maintain a healthy body weight.
