Create habits for healthy eating

The medical community has long recognized the link between trans fats and heart-related illnesses, such as coronary heart disease.

If a person eliminates trans fats from their diet, this will reduce their level of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. This type of cholesterol causes plaque to collect within the arteries, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Reducing blood pressure can also be essential for heart health, and limiting salt intake to 1,500 milligrams a day can help. Salt is added to many processed and fast foods, and a person hoping to lower their blood pressure should avoid these.

To make the first step toward adopting the habit of healthy eating, complete our daily healthy lifestyle task.

Daily Task

Put unhealthy items (e.g., potato chips) in hard-to-reach places and healthy items (e.g., carrot sticks) in easier-to-reach places. You can even stop buying unhealthy items.
