Most people opt for processed foods as they are readily available and also satiate hunger pangs. This leads to a poor diet which can harm you in a long run.
“As poor diet is a major modifiable risk factor for heart disease, it represents a critical target in prevention efforts,” Juul, a faculty fellow at the New York University School of Public Health, said in the press release.
Try to modify your diet by slowly cutting out processed foods from it. Keep track of the type of processed foods you eat on a daily basis be it bread, cookies, soft drinks etc. Replace these food items with healthy and organic food items. With this change in your diet, you will not only be able to reduce the risk of heart diseases but will also be able to lose extra weight.
“Ultimately, the goal should be to make ‘the unhealthy choice the hard choice’ and ‘the healthy choice the easy choice’,” Robert J. Ostfeld, MD, MSc, and Kathleen E. Allen, MS, RD, wrote in an editorial accompanying the study.
