150 Cholesterol Friendly Recipes For A Healthy Heart

TRENDING VIDEO

Heart Disease, or Cardiovascular Disease, is a collection of conditions where your blood vessels which lead to your heart have narrowed or become blocked by plaque. There are different kinds of heart disease like blood vessel diseases, heart rhythm problems, and congenital defects, but generally when we say heart disease in this context we’re really referring to Cardiovascular Disease (CVD).

When fat, cholesterol, and other things build up in your arteries, this is Plaque buildup. As plaque builds up, your heart has a harder and harder time doing its job. Unfortunately, CVD is a problem for roughly 6.5 million Americans over the age of 20, and it’s a leading cause of death in developed countries.

Fortunately, there are 4 key ways to prevent heart disease. What’s more? These can also help to reverse damage done by heart disease when followed with enough conviction.

  • Get a handle on your blood pressure
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Limit unhealthy habits
  • Get enough…

If you have a history of high blood pressure or if you’ve recently developed high blood pressure, it’s time to get those numbers down. Ideally, your blood pressure should be 120 over 60. That top number is your systolic pressure, and the bottom is your diastolic pressure. Without getting into what these mean individually, the point is, 120/60 is your target.

Your heart is the your most important muscle, and straining it isn’t healthy. What’s more, high blood pressure is one of the leading factors in developing Metabolic Syndrome, or Syndrome X. While we’re at it, let’s go ahead and take steps to lower all of the risk factors of developing Metabolic Syndrome by:

  • Working to shrink our waistlines to less than 35” for women and 40” for men
  • Raising our good cholesterol and lowering our bad cholesterol levels
  • Lowering our Triglyceride levels
  • Lowering our blood sugar
  • Increasing our activity by getting in more movement time during the day.

Your diet is the number one factor for heart disease (Plant-based diets that protect your heart, 2017), but for some reason, we play this down to dangerously low levels. What you eat fuels you. Your body literally moves from what you consume, but for some reason, we live in a fast food society where people want to think that it’s okay to abuse their hearts because heart disease is “curable.” In fact, nothing could be further from the truth.

Bypass surgeries build in and add in bypassing arteries. They don’t clear out existing damage. Furthermore, mortality rates among heart patients who’ve had a bypass of some level raises to between 60% and 80% after only 8 to 10 years (Many good years after heart bypass surger, but something happens after ten years, 2017).

RELATED: Why Choose A Vegetarian Diet To Lower Cholesterol and Heart Health

Getting back to the point at hand: Your Diet. We don’t mean whatever weight loss, restricting, fad diet you’re currently subscribing to. We mean your general and collective lifelong eating patterns. Your diet doesn’t exist in a vaccum. It’s a culmination of your eating choices throughout your life. Studies have shown that a plant based or even vegetarian diet is markedly healthier for your heart than a diet which consists mostly of animal proteins (Glynn, 2013).

Unhealthy habits like smoking greatly diminish your body’s ability to perform at heart healthy levels. Furthermore, your overall physical condition will affect your heart. This is why trainers, gym rats, and health experts tell you to get enough cardio exercise, and why those treadmills are in your local or community gym. Leg day may be hard, but cardio is essential.

Nobody has ever said that getting enough couch time will improve heart health, and if they did, chances are they were being ironic. Sitting around on your couch, watching TV, sitting at your desk at work, and generally not moving is an unhealthy habit that needs to be broken as badly as smoking.

Generally speaking, alcohol consumption has been traditionally added in with unhealthy habits you should eliminate, but the most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans points out that alcohol is okay in moderation. This doesn’t mean a delusional moderation. This means actual moderation.

Finally, it’s important to get enough. Get enough

  • Sleep
  • Cardio healthy exercise
  • Water
  • Laughter
  • Time with your dog

Okay, so laughter and “time with your dog” may not be the official lines here, but happiness is as important to heart health as is sleep and exercise.

Now that we have learned about heart health briefly, it’s time to check out the recipes we curated which can help you lower your cholesterol and improve your heart health.

Celebrity Health Specialist discovers 5 second breakfast tweak to activate the “Skinny Brain Switch”

Here’s how one mom of four used this simple tweak to reach her goal body weight (without starving herself or spending hours at the gym)

Fitness gurus and health-supplement companies are livid at a new discovery out of Harvard and Stanford… It turns out that by making just one simple adjustment at breakfast time, you can lose 10, 20, 30, 40, or even 50 pounds of the most stubborn fat!

→ Click here to see this incredible weight-loss breakthrough now.

Jenny Miller didn’t recognize herself after giving birth 4 times.

She ballooned way past her healthy size and her energy was suffering heavily.

It wasn’t always like this though.

Jenny’s husband says she was stunning when they fell in love…and he would never openly admit that he’d noticed her tremendous weight gain...

But Jenny knew that she did, and it made her feel hopeless.

The weight struggles all started when Jenny’s first daughter was born...

She noticed her body was changing, but at first she ignored these changes since they weren’t so bad.

After her second, third, and fourth daughters were born though...

Jenny really started to feel like she had no control over her body weight.

In fact, her daughters saw it too...

And on one happy family night...

One daughter said 6 little words that dug deep into Jenny and broke her heart.

Yet it’s thanks to her daughter’s awful comment that Jenny decided to make a change.

At first though, Jenny struggled mightily to regain her healthy physique.

She always seemed to end up in the same disappointing place...

After trying different diets like Keto, Atkins, Fasting, and Paleo...

After pushing herself to do HIIT, Pilates, Yoga, cardio, and home workouts...

And even after she paid a hypnotist to help her...

Jenny was still stuck.

She would lose a couple pounds, be excited, and have hope that things were going to be different this time...

But then her weight would come back, and sometimes ballooned even more.

After each disappointment, Jenny always thought...

“Why am I putting myself through this”

Jenny thought about giving up entirely...

And she might of...

But she couldn’t get the six brutal words her daughter had said out of her head. So she kept pushing and looking for anything that could aid her in the journey to achieving a healthy body weight.

And after a year of trial and error, Jenny finally caught a break.

Her husband met a Celebrity Health Specialist who discovered the 5 second breakfast tweak that flips on the “Skinny Brain Switch”

Right away Jenny and her husband knew this was something quite different. But they were also skeptical and nervous.

In fact, Jenny reports that her husband told her several times that it was okay if she didn’t want to try this tweak. It wasn’t because he didn’t want her to lose weight that he said this. He just didn’t want her to go through another disappointment.

Jenny was determined though, so she gave it a shot for the next 30 days.

At first, nothing seemed to be happening...

So her husband told her again - “It’s okay if you don’t want to continue”

But Jenny kept going, and soon she noticed that her weight was starting to drop.

Before long, Jenny was back to the healthy size that she enjoyed prior to giving birth for the first time.

She feels great and her husband has noticed a big difference too.

They both can’t stop talking about the simple tweak that made all of this possible.

And how it’s not just Jenny’s weight that improved:

Her mood was better...

Her energy increased...

And she was sleeping like a baby each day.

But now Jenny had a new problem:

Her clothes were too big to wear...

So she regularly went to a place where they donate clothes...

And each time the employees saw Jenny...

They were surprised that Jenny looked skinnier, healthier, and younger.

Today, readers of this article can try the same 5 second breakfast tweak that Jenny used to reclaim her youthful physique, energy and happiness.

This breakthrough has nothing to do with:

  • Switching to the latest diets...
  • Following hard exercise routines...
  • And counting calories everyday...

Yet it can help to stop cravings, and even end the cycle of failed dieting.

Tap the video below to discover:

  • The 6 traumatic words that turned Jenny’s life into a positive direction
  • How the 5 second breakfast tweak actives the “Skinny Brain Switch”
  • And why men and women are rushing to use this same simple tweak to return to burn fat and reach their body weight goals.
