4. Eat a healthy diet
Eat a diet that’s rich in oily fish, fruit, vegetables, unrefined cereals and olive oil, and low in red meat and sugar. Cut down on cakes, biscuits, and cheese and keep your sugary ‘treats’ to a minimum! Cutting down on the salt in your diet makes a big difference – don’t forget that much of the salt we eat is ‘hidden’ in processed foods, so do read the labels because salt raises your blood pressure and the risk of stroke.
