Is your heart older than you are?
According to newly released results of a CDC study, three out of 4 adults in the U.S. have a predicted heart age OLDER than their actual age.
The heart age is predicted using a risk factor profile. This could mean a higher risk for heart attacks and stroke. The average heart age for men is 8 years older. For women, the average heart age for women is 5 years older.
Cut down on red meat, fried foods, saturated fats, processed foods, increase intake of fruit and vegetables, limit dairy products, limit carbohydrates to about 25% of your meals — and exercise 30 minutes per day on average!
Make sure your heart is the same age — if not younger than you are.
That’s the Lowdown!
