There are several habits that everyone should follow for better heart health, and one of the most important is a diet for a healthy heart. A heart-healthy diet means sticking to foods low in unhealthy fats, specifically saturated and trans fats. "Limit the saturated fat you eat," recommends Watson, and "reduce the salt in your food." Just as important, it also means eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats — think fatty fish, nuts, and avocados, which can help promote weight management and prevent heart disease.
