  1. 1. 10 Tips for a Healthy Heart You just have one life, live it to the fullest !
  2. 2. 10 Tips for a Healthy Heart There are many steps people can take to try to prevent heart disease. You can start by concentrating on key lifestyle areas such as eating, exercise, smoking and drinking Here are 10 top tips for a healthy heart www.nutriconsult.in
  3. 3. 1 Stop Smoking Giving up smoking is the single most important thing a person can do to live longer. If you are a smoker, you are twice as likely to have a heart attack than a non- smoker. With public smoking bans recently introduced, there has never been a better time to give up smoking www.nutriconsult.in
  4. 4. 2 Cut Down on Salts Too much salt can cause high blood pressure, which increases the risk of developing coronary heart disease. Avoid foods like crisps, salted nuts, canned and packet soups and sauces, pizzas. www.nutriconsult.in
  5. 5. 3 Watch your Diet A healthy diet can help to reduce the risk of developing heart disease, and can also help increase the chances of survival after a heart attack. You should try to have a balanced diet, containing plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, starchy foods such as wholegrain bread, pasta and rice. Avoid foods like biscuits, cakes, pastries and dairy products that are high in saturated fats and sugar www.nutriconsult.in
  6. 6. 4 Monitor your Alcohol Too much alcohol can damage the heart muscle, increase blood pressure and also lead to weight gain. Binge drinking will increase your risk of having a heart attack, so you should aim to limit your intake. www.nutriconsult.in
  7. 7. 5 Get Active The heart is amuscle and it needs exercise to keep fit so that it can pump blood efficiently round your body with each 30 minutes of heart beat. You should aim for moderate intensity exercise a day. If this seems too daunting, start off gently and build up gradually. Keeping fit not only benefits your physical health - it improves your mental health and wellbeing too www.nutriconsult.in
  8. 8. 6 Manage your Weight The number of people who are overweight is rising fast - already more than half of the adult population is overweight or obese. Carrying a lot of extra weight can greatly affect your health and increases the risk of life-threatening conditions such as coronary heart disease and diabetes. If you are overweight or obese, start by making small, but healthy changes to what you eat, and try to become more active www.nutriconsult.in
  9. 9. 7 Check your Blood and Cholesterol levels The higher your blood pressure , the shorter your life expectancy. People with high blood pressure run a higher risk of having a stroke or a heart attack. High levels of cholesterol in the blood - produced by the liver from saturated fats - can lead to fatty deposits in your coronary arteries that increase your risk of coronary heart disease. You can help lower your cholesterol level by exercising and eating high-fibre foods such as porridge, beans, pulses, lentils, nuts, fruits and vegetables www.nutriconsult.in
  10. 10. 8 Manage your Stress Levels Stress is one of the prime factors for coronary heart disease. It is not visible, but can cause more damage than several of the other factors put together. Take it easy, you have only one life.. Make the most of it www.nutriconsult.in
  11. 11. 9 Check your Family History close relative If a has developed coronary heart disease, blood pressure, diabetes in the past, then you could be at risk too www.nutriconsult.in
  12. 12. 10 Recognize early signs of coronary heart disease Tightness or discomfort in the chest, neck, arm or stomach which comes on when you exert yourself but goes away with rest may be the first sign of angina, which can lead to a heart attack if left untreated. Do not ignore messages that your body is giving you www.nutriconsult.in
