12. Nuts

Nuts such as walnuts, peanuts, almonds, macadamia nuts and pistachio are rich in Vitamin E, which helps reduces bad cholesterol levels and keeps you healthy. Even though some people avoid nuts because they believe they are packed with fats, the truth is that nuts help people lose weight by filling them up and reducing untimely pangs of hunger.

Also, some nuts, such as walnuts, are packed with omega-3 fatty acids that reduce the risk for heart disease, and keep you lean and fit. However, be sure to avoid nuts that are coated in lots of added salt.

13. Citrus Fruits

Citric fruits such as oranges and grapefruits are rich in flavonoids, and women who eat lots of these citrus treats lower their risk of ischemic stroke by 19%.

Citrus fruits are also packed with vitamin C, which works wonders to lower the risk for heart diseases. However, grapefruit products can interfere with the effectiveness of statins, which are medicines that lower cholesterol. Also, avoid citrus juices because they are packed with added sugars.

14. Flax Seeds

Flax seeds are extremely popular amongst health nuts, because these seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which are extremely beneficial and healthy for your heart. They are also rich in fiber, which makes them even healthier for lowering cholesterol levels and keeping you fit.

You can eat flax seeds in countless ways, for instance, pair them up with oatmeal, blueberries, other fruits and soy milk to make a delicious smoothie, or just toss them into a salad.
