In addition to the food that would be best to eat, there are also foods to avoid. It is best to stay away from food rich in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, and sodium.
- Saturated fats mostly come from meat and dairy products like fatty beef, lamb, pork, poultry with skin, cheese, and dairy products, may it be whole or reduced-fat milk.
- Trans fats are responsible for giving some food really good taste and texture and is used by most restaurants due to its affordable price. However, an excess amount of it can cause an increased risk of developing heart disease and stroke as well. Fried and baked foods are very rich in trans fats, and these are a few things to look out for.
