1. Grill a steak.
You may think it’s bad for your heart, but you’d be wrong. Beef contains immunity-boosting selenium as well as homocysteine-lowering B vitamins. And up to 50 percent of the fat is the heart-healthy monounsaturated variety.
2. Watch a scary movie.
Anything that causes your heart to race–slasher flicks, a good book, even being in love–also makes your heart stronger, according to researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
–> lets watch horror movies more often XD
3. Run indoors on hazy days.
Researchers in Finland found that exercising outside on hot, hazy days when air pollution is at its worst can cut the supply of oxygen in the blood, making it more likely to clot.
–> now u have excuses to skip school ^^v
4. Fight cholesterol with fat.
A group of 17 Australian men with high cholesterol swapped macadamia nuts for 15 percent of the calories in their diets, and their total cholesterol dropped by between 3 and 5 percent, while their HDL (good) cholesterol rose by nearly 8 percent. The reason: Macadamias are the best natural source of monounsaturated fat.
–> specially dedicated to my chubby friend XD
5. Bike away the blues.
Men who are suffering from depression are more than twice as likely to develop heart disease as guys who aren’t depressed. So c’mon, get happy. In a trial of 150 men and women, Duke researchers found that after just 3 months of treatment, antidepressants and exercise were equally effective at relieving almost all symptoms of depression.
–> be happy guys !
6. Buy a punching bag.
A Harvard study found that men who express their anger have half the risk of heart disease compared with men who internalize it.
–> if anyone provoked you, just punch them. Don’t get yourself into any heart related diseases because of some rascals.lol
I see 6, but where are the other 94?
Will ask the other blogger to post the other 94?
