An inactive person's heart beats THOUSANDS of times more often per day, because their heart is less efficient.

Yes, nutritionist stated sugars, even natural should be limited for the heart as well.

She indicated one med fruit is equal to 2 fruit servings.

She also gave me the new levels of salt consumption, almost 2/3rds of what was previously indicated and reminded me of the dangers of leaving high blood pressure untreated.
Also, sea salt, is still salt only difference is the amount of chemicals added to iodized salt, but the sodium is the same.

New sodium intake levels as of 1/31/11 - Adequate intake

1-3 years old : 1,000 mg daily
4-8 " " : 1,200 mg daily
9-50 " " : 1,300 mg daily
51-70" " : 1,200 mg daily, recommendation is to reduce to no more than 1,500 mg daily equivalent to 1/2 of a teaspoon daily.

The leading cause of death in women is heart disease. It beats all forms of death by cancers.
Women more often than men , may have subtler, less recognizable symptoms, such as abdominal pain, achiness in the jaw or back, nausea and shortness of breath, A common symptom, unusual tiredness. Too often this uncanny fatigue that a women can't put her finger on is mistaken for indigestion or a sign of being out of shape.
Women should have a simple heart test, a CT scan. Also check your cholesterol and blood pressure. Both can lead to heart disease.
You can be thin and have high cholesterol. It need to be checked regardless of your weight.
The risk of heart disease is striking people at an early age than ever before.
Because of the life style, fast food and being more sedate.
Staying fit and active improves heart health. But you should still have check ups.

Believe in yourself, never give up, you are stronger than you think."
