Heart health begins with nutrition
A heart healthy nutrition plan is based on eating a balanced and limited daily calorie program with a combination of macro and micronutrients in all your foods.
Nutrition = macronutrients + micronutrients (secret heart healthy formula)
Macronutrients consist of 5 major categories:
- Water – naturally high PH water is recommended (>7.0) for best absorption into your cells to optimize health and hydration
with low tds (total dissolved solids)
> Safe Drinking Water Foundation
> Healthline: Alkaline Water – Benefits and Risks
> Web MD: What Is Alkaline Water?
> NDTV Food: Benefits Of Alkaline Water
- Fat – no oils are permitted (not a drop) because they contain saturated fat that ends up as plaque that clog your arteries causing heart disease, disability, and death. The healthy fats are unsaturated ones that are plentiful in hemp and chia seeds. Replace all oils with these seeds absolutely no exceptions.
- Fiber – no instant or quick-cooking oats just go for the wholesome steel cut or rolled oats!
- Protein – replace your dairy, meat, chicken, and fish (all have saturated fat causing heart disease, disability, and death) with heart healthy, legumes and vegan protein drinks (zero saturated fat and extremely heart healthy). My favourite is the Vega One brand.
- Carbohydrates – the secret is to include WHOLE GRAINS in your meal plan. (Quinoa, sweet potatoes etc)
