Heart-Healthy Diet Tips
What causes heart disease? Making these changes all at once might not be possible. I found out too late. Cardiomyopathy is a disease that causes the muscles of the heart to grow larger and turn rigid, thick, or weak. Higher numbers indicate that the heart is working too hard to pump blood. Living with CHD may cause fear, anxiety, depression, and stress. Tilapia, sardines from Canada, chicken breasts, avacado, almond butter, almond milk, onions sweet potato, also do intermittent fasting and I do interval training for 35 minutes three times a week.

The Diet-Heart Myth: Statins Don’t Save Lives in People Without Heart Disease

Tests show the low-carbohydrate diet actually produces a better glucose balance in the brain than a high-carbohydrate diet. The body can make any needed glucose from either protein or fat. Insulin a body hormone pushes excessive glucose into the cells to be used as fuel.

The body does not need glucose for fuel because it can also use protein and fatty acids. After a few years the cells become resistant to this excess glucose and we become "insulin resistant. Actually, orange juice becomes fat in our arteries and turns into saturated fat on our tummy.

The result is high levels of undesirable triglycerides, bad LDL cholesterol, and heart disease. After a period of accumulating fat, the body becomes resistant to depositing more fat. It then refuses to turn the glucose into fat and BOOM we become diabetic. It is a scientific fact that fructose sugar in fruit causes insulin resistance that increases the risk of Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes.

See the following truthful study that proves fructose as found in abundance in fruit and fruit juice is one of the root causes for metabolic syndrome, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and Alzheimer's disease.

The liver produces cholesterol which is necessary in the transport and storage of body fat. Eating a low-cholesterol diet does not reduce blood cholesterol, since the liver just produces more.

Eating carbohydrates produces bad LDL cholesterol that causes heart disease. Saturated fats are very healthy, and the omega-3 and some omega-6 fats are essential to good health. The best source for omega-3 fat is from fish oils which have been proven to prevent heart disease.

Yes, fats prevent heart disease. Fish 'lowers dementia risk'. Alpha-linolenic fatty acid is one of two fatty acids traditionally classified as "essential. As a result, we must be sure our diet contains sufficient amounts of both alpha-linolenic acid and linoleic acid. These vegetable oils are chemically modified in the food factories under high temperature and pressure to force hydrogen atoms to attach to the oil molecules. Unnatural trans fats are created when one of the two hydrogen atoms at the double carbon bond cis moves to the opposite trans side.

The result is a more solid fatty acid used in many foods as a substitute for the more expensive natural fats. Hydrogenated oils are not natural foods. They are factory-produced fatty acid chemicals.

The resultant trans fatty acids enter the body and attach to cells where healthy fats are intended to be.

Many doctors and researchers believe trans fats are one of the major factors causing adverse effects in immunity, reproduction, and lactation, as well as heart disease, diabetes , cancer , and obesity. The following page has a table listing dozens of common grocery store foods that contain the unhealthy trans fats. The bottom line in the prevention of heart disease, diabetes , and cancer is a diet low in carbohydrates and low in hydrogenated vegetable oils.

The research carried out at Stockholm University in cooperation with experts at Sweden's National Food Administration, a government food safety agency, showed that heating carbohydrate-rich foods such as potatoes, rice, or cereals formed acrylamide, a much-studied substance classified as a probable human carcinogen.

The healthy diet is high in protein and high in fats. Natural meat from any source is best, including beef, lamb, pork, wild game, poultry, fish, seafood, etc. Other good sources for protein and fats are eggs, cheeses, and real butter. Peanuts are a legume which contain a toxic oil and should be avoided.

The diet must include essential omega-3 and arachidonic omega-6 fatty acids as found in animal products, but all other omega-6 fatty acids from vegetable sources such as vegetable oils, grains, nuts, and seeds, should be avoided. Vegetables are an important part of this diet because they contain vitamin C, antioxidants, and many vita-nutrients.

All vegetables are acceptable except the starchy ones such as potatoes, turnips, beets, and yams. About the only acceptable fruit are the berries such as strawberries, blueberries, boysenberries, etc. Soy products such as beans, oil, and protein are not to be included in this diet. Soy is not a healthy food. Virtually all products on supermarket shelves that contain any soy or soy protein have all been contaminated.

Just because a soy product is labeled "organic" does not mean it is GMO free. Vegetarians gorge themselves on soy products such as soy milk and soy burgers. Vegetarian foods such as breads, bagels, cereals, crackers, pastas, and energy drinks have all been fortified with soy protein made from GMO-contaminated soybeans. Vegetarians spread lies about beef. An example is the common claim that protein causes gout. Many people are brainwashed into believing these lies. Gout is actually caused by carbohydrates in the diet.

S oy Online Service Home Page. This web site will prove the most healthy diet for humans is: Proof Saturated Fats Are Healthy. Ron Rosedale - pdf. What if bad fat isn't so bad? No one has ever proved that saturated fat clogs arteries, causes heart disease.

Nathan Pritikin developed a low-fat, low-protein, and high-complex carbohydrate vegetarian diet in the s due to his obesity and clogged arteries. His program required a very low-calorie diet and was strictly against the use of any vitamins, minerals, or other supplements. He claimed he reversed both of these conditions but died of suicide at the age of 60 years after battling leukemia cancer of the bone marrow. Studies have now shown that his low-fat, low-protein diet causes cancer.

He was warned by others that his diet had less vitamin E than minimum standards. It was also deficient in essential amino acids and essential fatty acids. Patients at his Centre for Longevity who followed the diet and didn't cheat also suffered a multitude of other medical problems.

Nathan Pritikin's diet program did result in low cholesterol, but new studies have shown that a person with low cholesterol has an increased risk of committing suicide. Perhaps his low cholesterol as well as his leukemia contributed to his death by suicide. Fixx wrote two books on the health benefits of exercise and running, but he died in from a heart attack at the young age of 52 in his running shoes, while on a daily run. Many try to cover the facts by blaming it on his heredity or smoking which he quit nine years earlier, but Fixx developed severe coronary artery disease during his running years.

He had developed atherosclerosis. There was also evidence of a recent heart attack. In addition, his heart was somewhat enlarged, a condition doctors call hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. This condition occurs when the heart muscle become thick, making it more difficult for the heart to work.

Exercise and low weight certainly helped him, but that could not overcome the disastrous effects of his diet. Fixx bought into the myth that fat in the diet is unhealthy, when in fact it is essential to life. He also became a vegetarian and refrained from eating meat. Fixx bought into the new philosophy that runners needed high levels of carbohydrates in their diets.

He ate a very low-calorie diet to keep from gaining weight due to his excessive carbohydrate intake. He failed to take any vitamins, minerals or other supplements on the false premise that his vegetarian diet could provide them. He undoubtedly suffered from an amino acid deficiency compounded by an essential fatty acid deficiency and further compounded by a refusal to supplement with vitamins and minerals.

Amino acids from protein are the building blocks of life, and it is difficult to obtain all of the amino acids required by one's diet without eating meat, fish, and fowl.

The effects of these deficiencies take many years to manifest themselves, and the resultant disease can be just about anything in the book. This makes it extremely difficult to pinpoint the cause and effect of a low-fat, low-protein diet on one's health.

People fail to understand that the minimum requirement for carbohydrates in the diet is zero - none. Learn the truth about the terribly unhealthy vegetarian diet at: The Myths of Vegetarianism.

Vegan vs High-Protein Diet Debate. Vegetarians develop high cholesterol and can't correct it. Brian Maxwell was a marathon runner, but he died of a heart attack at a very young age. His exercise, diet and energy bar did not provide the awesome health as commonly expected, but more than likely caused his early death. A former world-class marathon runner, Maxwell reportedly collapsed in a post office, and emergency personnel were unable to resuscitate him.

The PowerBar company has become a multimillion-dollar empire since Maxwell and his wife, a nutritionist, founded it in Maxwell thought of the idea to make PowerBars while running a He had to stop the race after 21 miles, the point at which experts say the body stops burning carbohydrates and starts to burn muscle tissue. He represented Canada in many international competitions as a long-distance runner.

Maxwell has proven once again that exercise does not prevent heart disease. He has also confirmed that the high-carbohydrate diet causes heart disease. His wife was a professional nutritionist and co-developer of the PowerBar, yet they created a "health product" that is pure garbage nutritionally.

They both were strong promoters of conventional high-carbohydrate nutrition. She is rich, but he is dead. Here is the list of ingredients for PowerBars that are laden with deadly carbohydrates and simple sugars: As a society, we are clearly in a state of nutritional crisis and in need of radical remedies.

I have been on the Atkins' low-carbohydrate diet since June, , and lost 35 pounds in the first four months. I am currently down 50 pounds to the "ideal" weight range. The Atkins' diet is better described as a high-protein, high-fat diet because Dr. Atkins encourages the consumption of fats, even saturated fats. I have eaten lots of red meat with high fat content during the past three years.

Salmon is especially good because it contains a high level of essential omega-3 fatty acid. My favorite cooking method is on the gas grill with low heat. The low heat does not melt all the fat, and prevents damage to the fat caused by high heat and oxidation.

Vegetables are not essential in the diet because most vegetables do not contain fats or protein, but they do make one feel psychologically normal when eaten in a group setting. Avoid high-carbohydrate, starchy vegetables like potatoes, yams, winter squash, and turnips. Coconut oil is the most preferred for frying and stir-fry. Real butter is the second best choice.

Eat and cook with refined or virgin coconut oil, and eat unsweetened, shredded coconut. Try both together at the same time for a taste treat.

The following quote and table are from Adipos Until such studies is published, we must compare results reported by Ornish and Atkins themselves.

However, the starting age, weight, and body mass index of Atkins' sample resembles those of Ornish's experimental group much more closely than Ornish's own control group, lending credence to the comparison. In some men with normal-sized LDL cholesterol particles, a very low-fat diet can cause changes in the cholesterol profile that indicate an increased heart disease risk.

In one study, 36 out of 87 men with normal-sized LDL particles switched to the small-particle abnormalities when their dietary fat was lowered from 46 percent of calories from fat to 24 percent. One sign of the switch was a rise in their ratio of total cholesterol to "good" HDL cholesterol, which implies a higher heart disease risk. Scientific studies as reported in the European Heart Journal 18, show the low-fat, low-cholesterol diet is ineffective in reducing coronary heart disease, and one study showed an increase in deaths.

The diet also results in an increase in deaths from other causes as in the case of Mr. Increasing triglycerides and decreasing HDL creates a higher heart disease risk.

Therefore, the low-fat, low-cholesterol diet proposed by Dr. Dean Ornish causes the cholesterol risk ratios to move in the wrong direction toward increasing heart disease risk.
