Healthy eating to boost your health + heart

October 21st, 2009

The facts about fats:
You’ve probably heard that it’s best to avoid foods that are high in fat. But when you eat the right amount of certain fats, they may contribute to a healthy diet and lower your risk of disease. The key is to substitute “good” fats for “bad” fats.

The good fats:
Studies have shown that these fats, if used in place of saturated fat, can help you lower your total cholesterol level. Omega-3 fatty acids are especially beneficial — studies have shown that they can also decrease your risk of heart disease and lower your blood pressure. Omega-3 fatty acids are usually found in seafood, such as salmon, herring and mackerel. They can also be found in flaxseeds or flaxseed oil, as well as walnuts.
