Hey. I am a victim of heart disease. I am 30 years old almost 31. Its been a few months and I AM on a good recovery, but truly, I feel like I still don't eat as healthy as I "should" be. Maybe I'm just paranoid ... But just incase, I was wondering if anyone could help me with an answer for my question !?
Possibly theres stories/situations where a person had his artery clogged within months while having an average size artery ?
Or possibly theres a estimated rate at which the average sized artery clogs while consuming a certain amount of cholesterol ?
Please help me as I feel like I may not be able to treat myself like I do, but I do appreciate the garbage food.
My last checkup was a month and a half ago. The doctor said he is VERY surprised at how fast and well my recovery is going ... He said I couldn't have bounced back any better then what I have.
Maintaining a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats, low cholesterol foods, and whole grains are all important. Also, making sure you don't eat too many calories is very important. Exercise is key. You are young so a solid 60 minutes of exercise daily for at least 5 days a week would benefit you greatly. Stay in close contact with your physician. Good luck!
