How to beat heart disease with diet and lifestyle
You can prevent heart disease — eating a healthy diet, such as a plant-based diet, and making healthy lifestyle changes are just some of the steps you can make. Cholesterol is the greatest risk factor for coronary heart disease. It increases in levels because of poor diets. Most people who were raised on a conventional Western diet, a plaque rich in cholesterol builds up inside the blood vessels that provide the heart with oxygen-rich blood. This, in turn, can result in chest pain and pressure known as angina. In addition, a blood clot can form within the artery and cause a heart attack if the plaque breaks. Cholesterol levels are increased by adhering to a diet rich with particular types of fats such as trans fat, saturated fat, and dietary cholesterol. Trans fat can be found in processed foods and meat and dairy products, while saturated fat can be found mainly in animal products and junk foods. Lastly, dietary cholesterol can only be obtained from animal-derived foods such as eggs.
However, unhealthy, fatty meals cause internal damage years into the future as well as triggering problems after hours of eating. Fortunately, the damaging process brought by fatty meals can be reversed. Past studies of patients with advanced heart disease tried plant-based diets as a way to stop the progression of the disease. After following a vegan diet, the heart disease of the patients began to reverse as they were getting better.
