Can’t eat meat if you have a heart attack? Doctor: You have to eat meat, but you have to know how to eat meat!

Can't eat meat if you have heart disease?

 

Many patients with heart disease will ask: Can I not eat meat anymore? Can only be vegetarian?

Meat can definitely be eaten, but you must be able to eat it; even if you do not eat meat, eating other unhealthy foods will increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

In fact, heart disease is just a general term, including many diseases. Diet-related diseases are mainly coronary heart disease, because an unhealthy diet will aggravate atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease; a healthy diet will reduce the occurrence of atherosclerosis and delay the control of coronary heart disease.

Eating too much meat will definitely increase the risk of coronary heart disease, but there is still a difference between meat and meat, not to mention not only meat that increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, but also other foods.

Eating too much meat will definitely aggravate atherosclerosis and increase the risk of coronary heart disease. In particular, eating too much fat, arterial organs, animal oil, etc. is more risky. These are saturated fatty acids and will increase low-density lipoprotein. Will aggravate atherosclerosis.

 

In addition to meat, some foods that are not meat, such as excessive trans-unsaturated fatty acids, will also increase the bad blood lipids of low-density lipoprotein; such as shortbread, fried dough sticks, fried fast food, etc.; so not only eating too much meat will cause Atherosclerosis worsens, eating these unhealthy foods will cause atherosclerosis.
Studies have shown that large intakes of saturated fat and trans fats can cause an increase in the level of “bad cholesterol” in the blood, thereby increasing vascular waste. These foods can indeed bring us delicious taste, but at the same time, these garbage will gradually accumulate in the blood vessels, gradually forming vascular garbage.

The so-called junk food principle is high-fat, high-oil, high-salt and high-sugar. Eating too much of these foods will produce more vascular waste and increase cardiovascular risk.

Of course meat can be eaten, but to control the amount, some meat can also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and is good for the heart.

Meat must be eaten to a certain extent. A healthy diet does not mean that you must not eat anything, just pay attention to controlling the total amount. The total amount of fat meat and animal offal is strictly controlled; lean meat should be eaten less, and lean meat should not be regarded as a healthy food for the family. Lean meat also contains a lot of fat. We should eat poultry such as chicken as the main meat. In particular, we can eat more fish, because fish can help blood lipid metabolism to a certain extent. Fish, especially deep-sea fish, can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

 

Therefore, heart disease can eat meat, but fat, animal offal, strictly control the amount; lean meat such as pigs, cattle and sheep will also increase cardiovascular risk, which can be appropriately controlled; poultry can be the mainstay, and fish are encouraged to eat more.
