- Try to have 4 – 5 small food intakes instead of one or two big ones. Hearty meals can cause digestive problems and contribute to deposits of energy carriers (fats) in different body areas, including artery walls.
- Try to reduce vastly your intake of salt and sugar. Sugar contributes to arteriosclerosis development. Besides that, eliminating sugar from your diet will lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
- Avoid fresh baked breads, pancakes, and fritters. Consume only whole grain bread with added bran.
- Reduce the consumption of dairy products, which are known to have negative effects on arteriosclerosis.
- Make olive oil an every day part of your daily life. Olive oil is less liable to produce oxidative damage than other oils. The oxidative damage of blood lipids is a major risk factor for developing arteriosclerosis.
- Overeating is especially dangerous (in dealing with arteriosclerosis) for the people who have a sedentary lifestyle.
- High protein diet increases the formation of arteriosclerosis in the arteries. A diet high in animal products provides a high ratio of the amino acids lysine to arginine, approximately 3 or 4 to 1, and becomes a high risk factor for arteriosclerosis. Vegetarians have a much lower ratio of these two amino acids than meat eaters, and consequently a lower incidence of arteriosclerosis.
