Celebrate National Wear Red Day
In addition to observing the day of awareness, it's crucial that both women and men take measures to lower their risk of heart disease. Quit smoking. Cut back on alcohol consumption. Exercise 30 minutes a day. Reduce your cholesterol. Limit unhealthy fats just as butter, margarine and shortening. Consume low-fat protein sources such as chicken, fish and lean meat. Legumes such as beans, peas and lentils are also good sources of proteins and less fat. Get your fill of vegetables and fruits. Also, indulge in whole grains, which are packed with vitamins and minerals.
