Limiting saturated fat and completely cutting out tans fat are the two things you should eradicate from your diet first when trying to eat healthy. Both of these fat sources increase your cholesterol level which also puts you at a higher risk for stroke and heart conditions. There are several ways through which you can cut back on these two fats.

Limit fats that are in solid state. Lay low on fats that at room temperature remain at solid state such margarine, butter or shortening. The only exception to a solid fat is coconut oil or coconut butter. So instead of butter you can switch to coconut butter. Coconut based fat actually help to lower cholesterol levels and also induce weight loss. Fat in animal protein too is solid fat so try to choose leaner cuts of whatever animal protein you prefer to eat.

Learn to read your food labels. Most processed or frozen foods have added saturated fat and trans fat in them. So be label-savvy and be wary of sneaky hidden fats that might be present in your choice of packaged food. Keep an eye for ingredients such as “hydrogenated oil” which is just a complex name for trans fat!

Coffee and green tea can lower risks of stroke

While there have been various studies that have shunned the use of coffee and green tea, the fact is that when consumed in moderation both have the ability to lower risk of stroke. Researchers indicate that people, who consume green tea or coffee instead of the regular sugary artificial beverages, have a lower rate of suffering from a stroke.

Just one cup of coffee a day can reduce your risk of a stroke by 25 percent. Whereas for green tea, around 2 to three cups daily can help to lower your risks by 18 percent and in addition green tea will also reduce your risk of brain hemorrhage by 30 percent.

Apart from that both green tea and coffee have the ability to increase your metabolism and when drank after meals, both will aid in digesting food. Many athletes drink a cup or two of coffee or green tea before their morning workout sessions, on an empty stomach as this habit tends to perk up your energy levels and either of the two can help you focus better and train harder. Coffee in particular can tremendously reduce symptoms of fatigue and pain and hence can make exercise more enjoyable.
