These are the 5 Foods Cardiologists Say You Should Avoid

Updated

on

Working toward a healthy heart is a major part of extending the longevity and quality of one’s life, especially since more than 600,000 people in the United States die from heart disease each year. Here are a few foods you should definitely consider giving up if you want your heart to function properly now and in the future.

Fried and Fast Food

By now, everyone should know fast food is simply unhealthy. While these meals-on-the-go can be tasty, they aren’t worth splurging on when you’re putting your health at risk. Obviously, fried items are the worst for you, but even other non-fried foods at fast food restaurants can be loaded with extra carbs and sugar.

Overly Processed Meats

Hot dogs, deli meats, beef jerky, salami, and other processed meats should all be avoided to keep your heart healthy. This is because processed meats are high in saturated fats, sodium, calories, and other additives. Opt for a veggie burger at your next cookout to keep that heart working well.

Caffeine-Filled Energy Drinks

Energy drinks such as Red Bull, Rockstar, and Monster should all be, at best, a rare treat. Not only are these drinks high in sugar and caffeine, but they can cause other disorders such as high blood pressure and arrhythmia. You should also abstain from using these as a mixer with alcohol since alcohol is a depressant. It isn’t good for your heart to have one substance give you energy while the other slows your body down.

Packaged, Processed Snacks

Little Debbie is not your heart’s friend. Packaged desserts can pack a boatload of carbs and sugars. Other snacks like potato chips and crackers have a lot of salt and carbs as well. Try meal planning some fresh snacks like carrots or fresh berries for work or when you’re on the go instead of reaching for packaged snacks.

Super Sugary Foods

Added sugars are everywhere, and they are definitely in sweets such as ice cream, candy, cake, and more. Try not to eat these foods as much as possible. If you absolutely cannot cut sweets out of your life, minimize the portions of these foods to keep your calorie and sugar intake low.
