For 31 years of my life I never thought about what I was eating. I ate what I wanted, when I wanted, and never gave it a second thought. I wasn't a fast food junkie by any means, but did enjoy things like french fries, Doritos, ice cream, and Coca-Cola, as well as watermelon, sweet corn, Yoplait yogurt, and beer.
After my IBD diagnosis in 1998 I never ate any of these aforementioned foods again - and many, many others - at least not without serious repercussions that made me finally stop eating them.

Highlights Heart-Healthy Diet Guidelines Key recommendations for a heart-healthy diet include: Eat a balanced diet with plenty of high-fiber foods, such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and nuts. Reduce consumption of high-calorie, nutrient-poor foods and beverages. Eat fish, especially oily fish (such as salmon, trout, and mackerel), at least twice a week. Oily fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower the risk of death from heart disease. Get at least 5 - 10% of daily calories from omega-6 fatty acids, which are found in vegetable oils such as sunflower, safflower, corn, and soybean as well as nuts and seeds. Choose fat-free or low-fat dairy products. Limit daily consumption of foods high in saturated fats and cholesterol, such as red meat, shellfish, and egg yolks.
