The food a person eat, generally affect the way blood flows through the heart and arteries. A diet, which is high in fat and cholesterol, gradually causes a buildup called plaque in the arteries. The buildups commonly slows down the blood flow and block small arteries.

If a blockage happens in an artery that carries blood to the heart muscle, then a heart attack can occur. If the blockage happens in an artery that carries blood to the brain, then a stroke can occur. The right diet helps to keep the arteries clear and reduces the risk of heart problems and stroke.

Moreover, exercise also makes the heart stronger and thus helps it to pump more blood with each heartbeat. The blood then delivers more oxygen to the body, which helps it to function more efficiently. Exercise can also lower blood pressure, reduces the risk of heart disease and reduce levels of LDL that is bad cholesterol, which clogs the arteries, and can same time, exercise can raise levels of HDL, which helps to protect against heart disease.

Combined with a healthy diet, exercise can speed up weight loss. Exercise is also the best way to maintain weight loss. Regular exercise also helps the person to burn calories faster and even when he/she is sitting still. The type of exercise, best for the heart is aerobic exercises.

Such breathe more deeply and makes a person’s heart work harder to pump blood. Aerobic exercises also raise the heart rate, which also burns calories. Examples of aerobic exercise include walking, jogging, running, swimming and bicycling.

What you eat before exercise can make the difference between an energetic, perhaps even peppy, workout and a tired, work out. If person likes morning workouts, then he/she should try to nibble on something to avoid feeling dizzy and hungry.

Simple sugars like juice are absorbed faster, but can cause a quick rise and fall in blood sugar, which could make the person tired. By lunchtime, breakfast is probably a faint memory. In order to avoid hunger pains and fatigue during the noon workout, person should try this:-

Person should eat a meal that is around 300-400 calories, one or two hours before the workout. Person should again avoid high fat or high protein foods, and stick with something that has around 60% crabs, 20% protein and 20% fat.

When a person has finished exercising, then they need to replace some of those calories, which have been burned. Aside from keeping the body fueled with healthy calories, there are a few other things, which can help the person to workout better. Person should avoid exercising on an empty stomach.

They should get plenty of rest, that means sleeping for at least 8 hours a night. Working out too much can cause fatigue and possibly severe symptoms.
