Unlike The Doctor, you only have one heart and because it carries you through life and has to work hard, you really should look after it.
Did you know it beats more than 10,000 times a day?
And did you also know that heart disease kills more young women than breast cancer?
Now you’re more interested in ways to strengthen your heart – right?
1. Avoid Eating Too Much Saturated Fat
Too much saturated fat intake can lead to high cholesterol.
You can reduce your intake by making small changes to your diet: swap full-fat milk and yogurt for skimmed and reduced fat varieties;
steam and grill food instead of frying everything;
choose lean poultry meats and fish over red meat.
Use olive oil and other unsaturated fats whenever possible.
