In a healthy heart diet you should:

  • avoid foods rich in fat and salt, such as processed and pre-prepared products;
  • exclude fried foods and other preparations that use a lot of fats;
  • eliminate salt from cooking, and aromatic herbs, olive oil, garlic and wine can always be used to season;
  • do not drink alcoholic beverages, but can be used to season lean meats and fish because alcohol evaporates when food is heated.

In addition to diet, it is important for heart health to control pressure, practice physical activity, such as a 30-minute walk every day, and have an appropriate weight for height and age.
