Reduce your risk of another heart attack

There is evidence that lifestyle affects your risk of having a heart attack. Making changes to your diet, how much exercise you take, your alcohol intake, as well as cutting down on smoking or losing weight if you’re overweight can reduce your risk of another heart attack.

Changes to your diet
ü  Eat more bread, fruit, vegetables and fish, and less meat.
ü  Choose products made from vegetable and plant oils (such as olive oil) instead of products such as butter and cheese.
ü  Avoid foods that contain a lot of fat (especially saturated fat), salt and added sugar.
ü  Eat two to four portions of oily fish a week, such as herring, sardines, mackerel, salmon, trout and tuna. A portion is about 140g (a small tin of oily fish or a small fillet of fresh fish).
ü  Choose healthy ways of cooking and preparing your food.
ü  Don’t fry food or roast it in fat. Instead, steam, poach, bake, casserole, microwave or stir fry.
ü  Don’t take beta-carotene (a type of vitamin A) supplements.
ü  Be aware that taking vitamins C or E or folic acid won’t help prevent another heart attack.
ü  Drink less alcohol
ü  If you drink alcohol, stay within the recommended limits and don’t binge drink.

Take regular exercise
Regular exercise can help your heart. Adults should do at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week.
Your doctor will give you advice about whether you need to increase your activity levels, and how to do this safely. It will depend on:
Ø  How well you’ve recovered
Ø  How physically active you are now
Ø  How physically active you used to be
Ø  What type of exercise you enjoy
Choose activities that make you slightly breathless, but you shouldn’t feel pain or discomfort. If you do, stop and rest immediately.

Stop smoking
Smoking increases your risk of having another heart attack.
If you smoke, get help and advice to help you stop. Treatments are available at our clinic to help you stop smoking.

If you’re overweight, you’re putting extra strain on your heart and increasing your risk of another heart attack. If you need to lose weight, the healthcare professional looking after you, such as your doctor, can give you advice and support about reaching and maintaining your ideal weight.

Cardiac rehabilitation
After your heart attack you'll be given advice and support. You’ll be invited to attend a cardiac rehabilitation programme to help you recover and lead your life as normally as possible.
The programme covers:
Health education and information
Stress management
Reassurance about sexual activity.
