"Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do." John Wooden, football coach
Exercise is so important to heart health. Try to stay focused on what you can realistically accomplish. Not everyone can be in a triathlon, and that's okay. To be successful with an exercise program one must zero in on what's right for you.
If the best you can do at first is walk briskly for 15 minutes on a treadmill, make it your greatest 15 minute workout ever. And know that pretty soon you'll be doing your greatest 30 minute workout, your greatest 45 and so on.
Avoid trans fat. Trans fat is even more harmful then saturated fat in causing "bad" LDL-cholesterol to rise and "good" HDL-cholesterol to fall. A recent study found that increasing trans fat in the diet lead to a 29% rise in the risk of heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends that you consume less than 1% of your total calories from trans fat. So if you eat 2000 calories a day, No more than 20 cal should come from trans fat meanieless than 2 g a day
The Food and Drug Administration allows food products with less than 0.5 g of trans fat per serving to claim 0 g of trans fat it's called "rounding down". You must read labels carefully.
These two tips can go along way in helping you lead a life filled with heart healthy choices.
