Cardiovascular Disease and Omega 3s
About 2,150 Americans die every day from heart disease.
That’s one person every 39 seconds.
According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women.
Now I’m sure you know by now that a poor diet causes weight gain, an increase in blood pressure, and an increase in bad cholesterol…
…All these factors can lead to heart disease, eventually causing a life-threatening heart attack.
And if you think that adding salmon and nuts to your nutrition plan a few times per week will help you prevent heart disease, while you continue to chow down on all the wrong foods…
…You’re taking a very big risk.
Cardiovascular Disease and Omega 3s
In order to avoid damaging your heart, or worse yet, suffering from a heart attack – the following foods should be eliminated from your diet ASAP.
1: Processed Meats
Hot dogs, cold cuts, sausages etc. are loaded with preservatives,
sodium, and nitrites. This is not just bad for your heart but it is
also linked to diabetes and pancreatic cancer.
2: Trans fats
When oils are heated up to make them more stable they become
“trans fats.” It’s cheap, so it allows processed food marketers to
keep products on the shelves longer.
Trans fats lower your good cholesterol and raise your bad
cholesterol. And just because it says ZERO trans fats on the
labels… means absolutely nothing because the government
still allows 0.5 grams to be labeled “trans fat-free.”
Even the FDA says, “There is NO safe amount of this
So make sure to remove trans fats from your diet by avoiding
foods that say “Partially hydrogenated oil.” It’s one of the
Did you know that drinking one soda per day increases a
man’s risk of a heart attack by 20%??? The sugar content
in soda is astronomical.
Just ONE can of soda contains 6 to 10 teaspoons of pure,
4: Diet Sodas
Diet sodas (especially ones with aspartame or other artificial
sweeteners) are linked to type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure
And now studies are indicating that drinking diet sodas
increases the likelihood of dying from a cardio vascular
disease (Journal of General Internal Medicine).
5: Fast Food
A 2012 study reported that after just eating one fast food
meal, the body’s ability to dilate blood vessels dropped by
24%, which is a precursor to hardening of the arteries…
And that’s just one meal! Stick to mom’s home cookin’
and avoid this nightmare.
6: Sugar (especially fructose)
Everybody knows sugar can potentially kill you if you abuse
it long enough. Try to limit your sugar intake to no more than
100 calories per day (or about 6 tsp.)…and always, always,
always avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup like the plague.
7: Processed Salt
Yes, your body needs salt (especially if you exercise).
But the daily recommended amount is 1500 mg — and the
average American takes in about 2300 mg. And that’s not even
the real culprit. It’s how it is processed. Make sure you replace
processed table salt with the REAL salt and this will
be a non-issue.
Now this is really just the beginning.
There are many other “common” everyday foods, such as cooking oils, condiments, and even certain types of fish, which can DAMAGE the precious tissues of your heart.
It’s a serious problem that you shouldn’t take lightly.
One of my newest and trusted advisors (a board certified M.D.), Dr. Phil Spiess, just put together a Brand New 34 page *FREE* Report to address these issues, and you can have it in your hands in just a few seconds by visiting the link below.
This report will inform you of the worst foods you MUST steer clear of if you care about your health and longevity.
Unfortunately, most people eating a modern “western diet” eat these forbidden foods every day…WITHOUT even realizing they’re destroying their health.
Have an awesome day!
