Heart attacks occur when you least expect them, and it’s when the arteries in the body supplying blood become clogged. And do you know how the arteries can get clogged? That’s right, by unhealthy lifestyle habits such as junk food, smoking and lack of exercise increase.
So for your sake, and your heart’s sake, please stop eating the following foods:
- Restaurant Appetizers
Most restaurant appetizers are just really, really bad for the heart. Consider all of the salt—which is bad for your blood pressure—on a single order of fries. With just one serving of those delicious fries you’re craving so much, you might be meeting your entire daily requirement for sodium. Not only does sodium increase your chances of a heart attack, but also your arteries absolutely hate it. The worst thing about sodium is that salty food is actually addictive.
- “Healthy” Choices at a Restaurant
There are the other ones among you who are looking to eat healthily and whenever they go out, they go for a salad.
The problem is that salads are often loaded with hidden fats, especially through the fried of grilled meat. A grilled steak Caesar salad at the popular food chain Applebee’s contains 2,200 mg of sodium!
It’s a fact that most consumers are not aware of the high levels of fat, calories, saturated fat, and sodium found in many menu items.”
- Chinese Food
Chinese food is typically high in sodium. I mean, just take soy sauce for example.
A lot of people are allergic to some of the ingredients that Chinese food has, but they just don’t know it. Before they understood the source in the ingredients, the symptoms of this allergy were simply called “The Chinese Restaurant Syndrome.”
- KFC Original Recipe Chicken
As much as you love KFC, just think about all the salt that’s on those crispi chicken wings and all the fat from the oil they’re fried in. And they don’t even change the oil that often, so it’s just really disgusting when you think about it.
Another problem with KFC is that you don’t know where the chicken you’re eating came from, how it was prepared, or what went into it.
- Frozen Meals
Frozen meals might only be slightly better than fast food, but at the end of the day, they’re really, really bad too.
You face the same problems that you see with restaurant foods—it’s hard to tell what is in the food and how it was prepared, and besides, the nutritional quality of most frozen meals is appalling.
- Fast Food in General
Fast food is a heart killer, just generally – most fast food chains don’t care about the food they’re serving – they care about the money the food they’re serving is making them.
- Kid’s Meals
Kids are gonna love them, but it’s up to you to take care of the health of your little ones. Don’t give them food that not even you are supposed to eat. Yes, the toys are fun, but how about you get them some real toys if they finish their organic salad?
You’re bringing up the future generations and crafting the way they’ll think.
