Anyone trying a heart healthy diet?

You guys are old, so I wondered if anyone else is on a heart healthy diet besides me?

I don't follow a specific diet but I watch what I eat, I lift weights at a fitness center a couple of times a week, ride a bike instead of driving when I can and try to walk a minimum of 5000 steps a day. My weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels are perfect according to my doctor.

With the exception of my smoked ribs time to time it is a way of life for my family. It's paid off so far. Doc says my treadmill results (heart) are that of a 28 year old...I'm 53 now
Guess I'll die of something else...

I've had more then my share of heart issues the last few years, so yes, I watch my diet and try to stay as fit as possible within my restrictions. I have to admit though, I cheat occasionally.

Lot's of it has to do with the roll of the genetic dice. Some are luckier than others. My dad started smoking when he was 13 (and never quit), was a hard hard drinker until he just got too old to do it, and ate bacon & eggs every morning. It finally killed him two weeks shy of his 87th birthday.

Finishing up a 12 week round of meds to fight my Hep C. Decided at the start of treatment it was time to get healthy. Work out every day, low sugar, low fat diet. I've lost 25 lbs and my blood work is normal across the board. Going back to the Dr next week to be taken off my high BP meds. I'm 61 years old and feel better than I have in 20 yrs even with the effects of the meds. You can do it if you try.Kurt

Recent studies conclude that saturated fats don't cause heart disease...unsaturated fats don't prevent heart disease. However..if you listen to Dr. Oz (not me)..Sugar starts the cascade of events..Atkins diet in two words .. No Sugar..
