A “heart consultant” gives nutritional advice to those who have had previous strokes

Dr. Khaled Al-Nimr, a consultant and professor of cardiology and arterial catheterization, gave several tips related to food for those who had previous heart attacks, most notably reducing fats and salts and paying attention to salads and fruits.

Dr. Al-Nimr said (through his Twitter account) that he advises heart patients who have had previous strokes to reduce the intake of animal fats (Fatah – Mandi – Haneeth…etc) and focus on healthy eating a lot, such as salads of all kinds, while eating five servings of fruits per day.

The heart consultant also advised to reduce salt and sugars in food, with the possibility of eating chicken breasts, fish, and a handful of nuts.

On the other hand, Dr. Al-Nimr explained that drinking bitter tea after eating dates with coffee, or after a fatty meal, does not reduce high blood sugar.
