In a unique effort by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, September has been declared as the National Nutrition Month for the country.
Here are a few lifestyle changes which one must follow to reduce the risk of heart diseases:
Get your numbers checked: 60% of people fail to recognize the symptoms of diabetes and remain untreated, leading to increased risk of heart disease. So be aware and get your blood-sugar levels checked. Research shows that almonds, which are a source of protein and high in dietary fibre, can help in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes and help lower the blood sugar impact of carbohydrate foods, which affect fasting insulin levels.
Run to keep fit: With your doctor/physical trainer’s approval, try and include exercise as a part of your daily routine and keep an active lifestyle. Madhuri Ruia, Founder – Integym said, “Moderate exercise of 30 minutes in a day for five days in a week, breaking a slight sweat is good for a healthy heart.”
