Processed meats like bacon, sausage, and hot dogs are high in saturated fat and sodium, which can increase your risk of heart disease.
Fried foods like fried chicken and French fries are also high in saturated and trans fats, which can raise your cholesterol levels and increase your risk of heart disease.
Instead of processed meats, choose lean proteins like chicken, fish, and beans, which are lower in saturated fat and sodium.
Instead of fried foods, choose baked, grilled, or roasted options, which are lower in unhealthy fats and calories.
Eating a heart-healthy diet can help lower your risk of heart disease and improve your overall health.
Other heart-healthy foods to include in your diet are fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.
Consult with a registered dietitian or your healthcare provider to create a personalized heart-healthy eating plan.
