Heart Attack: 5 Foods To Avoid Eating In Excess

An article on WebMD says that the heart is very important because it sends blood to all the other parts of the body. The food you eat is important because it can either be good for or bad for your heart. This article will talk about 5 foods that you shouldn't eat too much of if you want to avoid having a heart attack. These are some of them:

1. Foods with too much sugar, salt, or fat in them.

Foods with too much fat, sugar, and salt can be bad for your heart, which can lead to a heart attack. Avoid eating too much pizza, sausage, sugary drinks, salty fish, cheese, bacon, and other unhealthy foods.

2. Dark meat

Red meat has a lot of saturated fat, which can make your body make more cholesterol. This can also lead to heart disease, which can put you at risk for a heart attack.

3. Bread and white rice

White rice and bread may not have the vitamins and fiber you need to stay healthy. You should know that refined grains can be turned into sugar, which your body stores as fat. Foods with too many refined grains can make you gain weight around your middle, which can lead to heart disease.

4. Alcohol

People with high blood pressure or high levels of triglycerides should not drink alcohol because it can cause a heart attack.

5. Butter

It is important to know that butter has too much saturated fat, which can raise your bad cholesterol and make you more likely to have a heart attack.
