Food pyramid showing proper nutrition

If you have a heart disease you must eliminate or drastically reduce yourr consumption of harmful fats such as saturated fats, trans-fatty acids or hydrogenated fats.

The common sources of saturated fats or cholestrol include meat, poultry, diary products, butter, eggs, palm oil and coconut oil.

Don’t forget that many foods are made with these ingredients. You must avoid sweet baked goods and also avoid eating simple sugars as they cause elevated levels of cholestrol, triglycerides, insulin and other markers that contribute to cardio vascular damage, and reduce consumption of sodium.
