It’s so wise of you to change your lifestyle step by step. As for the diet, you should pay more attention to the following aspects: 1. Get moderate good fats. You must hear the saturated fats and trans fats before, right? Then avoid them as possible as you can because they will increase your LDL cholesterol. You should eat the good fats like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated and other unsaturated fats. For example, add the olive oil, nuts, avocados, fish, soybean oil, and walnuts in your diet plan. 2. Less and less salt. More salt, more sodium, then high blood pressure, which is followed by heart attack, coronary heart disease and stroke. Less than 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day is recommended by the American Heart Association. 3.Vegetables and Fruits on a daily basis. Everyone knows it. Get more dietary fiber through whole grains, fruits, vegetables and beans. 4.Low-fat protein intake. Low-fat protein sources include lean meat, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy products as well as beans and peas that are high in protein, low in fat and contain no cholesterol.
