The next time you order a fast food meal and find yourself with a nasty taste in your mouth, think about the next time your mother made you this treat with her ice cream.
You’ll probably be happy you did because it’ll get you back on track.
In fact, it will also help you get a healthier, more balanced diet, says Dr. Joanna Krumholz, a professor of nutrition at the University of Southern California.
“People who have these symptoms will be in a better position to take the right steps to reduce their risk of heart disease,” she says.
“So I think the next step for us is to look at ways to reduce the risk of developing this condition, which can be hard for a lot of people.”
It may sound like a minor annoyance, but this is something you’ll want to consider if you’re struggling to get back into the swing of things.
Krumhelz explains that eating a healthy diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, whole beans and legumes, and low-fat dairy products can help keep your heart healthy.
In addition, she recommends limiting the amount of sugar and fat in your diet and increasing the amount you eat each day.
But don’t take it from us: You can actually help your health by eliminating fast food from your diet.
Here are five ways to avoid getting heartburn at the same time.
Choose healthy foods for your body.
While eating a diet high in fat and sugar can lead to heartburn, the good news is that healthy fats and proteins can actually protect you from the condition.
In a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, researchers found that people who consumed the most whole foods such as nuts, beans, and fish were less likely to develop heartburn than people who ate the least.
The study also found that individuals who ate at least two servings of whole grain bread a day had a lower risk of getting heart disease than those who ate less than one serving of bread per day.
“It’s very easy to overeat on the go,” says Krumhels.
“If you’re eating enough whole foods you’re likely to have good gut flora and healthy gut microbes.
So if you do eat enough whole grains and nuts, you should not be getting this condition.”
The best part is that many healthy foods are inexpensive, and you can even get these nutrients for free if you shop around.
Eat more vegetables.
Kolkholz recommends making sure you’re getting plenty of whole grains such as whole wheat, brown rice, and oats in your meals.
You should also eat plenty of protein, including beans, lentils, and soy products.
“There’s a lot more of a health benefit to eating lots of protein than you think,” she explains.
“In fact, protein is probably the most nutrient dense food in the diet.
If you’re doing a very, very high-protein diet, you may be better off than if you have a low-protein one.”
Krumhhelz recommends adding more veggies to your meals to increase the fiber content in your food.
“Vitamin C is very important in the body, and a lot [of people] aren’t getting enough of it,” she adds.
“One thing that people may not realize is that there’s a way to increase vitamin C levels and get enough of that.”
The only problem is that this is usually done in the form of vitamin supplements, which don’t give you enough of your own.
“A lot of the vitamins and minerals you get from food are from food sources, so if you are eating too many foods from the same source, you’re going to be deficient in a lot,” says Keil.
“The key is to get a lot from the foods you eat, not just from a supplement.”
Eat lots of whole foods.
“I think if you eat lots of vegetables, you’ll have a much better chance of having a healthy heart,” says Dr the author of this article, Dr. Lisa Rabin.
She adds that eating at least four servings of fruit and vegetables a day can help.
“These foods tend to be higher in fiber and vitamins,” she notes.
“They also have the ability to help lower your risk of constipation, diabetes, and depression.”
She also says that you can reduce your risk by making your meals a little healthier by eating lots and lots of fruits, vegetables, and leguminous grains.
Get enough sleep.
“You have to eat when you can, and get a little bit of sleep,” says Rabin, who advises that you avoid getting up in the middle of the night and get up in between 3 a.m. and 5 a.ma.
She also recommends that you take a full-body massage every night, which will help you release endorphins, which are chemicals that are released during physical activity.
She suggests also getting at least a
