Your vital organs (heart, liver, brain, kidneys) need a bit of the right fats to keep them going but excess fat will damage the same said organs.
The right amount of calories and foods rich in good cholesterol have to be consumed failure to which you will have several health problems including reduced muscles mass. When your caloric intake is too low, your body will search for sources of energy to just keep vital organs functioning and it will turn to your muscle mass for those energy foods. When this happens, your metabolic rate will drop dramatically if you eat too little calories and after three days of low calorie intake this will compound your muscle mass loss. When you don’t eat enough calories you become sluggish, develop nutritional deficiencies, and you become very irritable.
It’s not only the fatties that are at risk of heart disease, skinny people who eat a lot of the wrong foods are also at a high risk of heart disease.
An obese person’s heart looks like the picture above and a heart like that will surely guarantee you a heart attack or other chronic heart related diseases.
Cardiologists the world over agree that these are the worst foods for your heart:
Sausages, hotdogs and other processed meats
Red meats including pork
Chips (both potato and corn)
Butter/mayo/sour cream laden foods
All Fried foods and Fast food.
The best foods for your heart obviously include fresh fruits and vegetables combined with an active life or an hour of exercise a day and plenty of water.
