It’s a no-brainer: Include fish in your meals each week. Choose cold-water fish (e.g., salmon, haddock, mackerel, or tuna), which are high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Studies suggest that eating fish two or three times a week may reduce your risk of heart disease.
Eating at least one serving of fish per week can make you up to 1.8 years younger. Be sure to meet your daily requirement for magnesium, too.
Research indicates that men who get adequate magnesium from their diets have a lower risk of heart disease than those who don’t get enough. Aim to get at least 400 milligrams of magnesium each day. Good sources include spinach and almonds (1 ounce has 20% of your magnesium for the day).
