Have you been faced with the markers for heart disease? Some you can’t avoid such as age, family history, gender or race. But try to work on risk factors you CAN change such as smoking habits… high cholesterol levels… lack of exercise… added pounds… and unbalanced blood sugar levels. Also look into packing your diet with healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, fiber, lean protein and whole grains. Try to avoid fats, excess meat and alcohol.
