So, one of the things I did to prevent heart disease was to start eating a healthier diet. I focused on eating more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, and cut out processed foods and sugary drinks. I also made sure to eat three balanced meals a day and snack on healthy options like nuts and fruits.
It wasn’t easy at first, but I found that making small changes over time helped me stick to my new diet. I started by adding more fruits and vegetables to my meals, and then gradually replaced processed foods with whole foods.
Snacking was a challenge for me because I used to reach for sugary or salty snacks. But, I found that keeping healthy snacks like nuts and fruits on hand made it easier to resist unhealthy options.
