Healthy Heart Reports

Heavy Meal May Trigger A Heart Attack

At the recent American Heart Association meetings in New Orleans, researchers at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston report that eating a very fatty meal increases a person's risk for a heart attack four fold.

First you set yourself up for a heart attack by being obese, having high cholesterol, high blood pressure, not exercising, eating too much saturated fat and partially hydrogenated fat and not enough fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, seeds and nuts, and being older. Then, when you eat a large meal, fat constricts your arteries and the sugar causes a rise in insulin that keeps arteries constricted, to increase your chances for a heart attack. It may be more healthy to eat several small meals, rather single large ones and don't go to bed immediately after you eat.
