Experts from the European Society of Cardiology cited the first study evaluating "unhealthy behavior in patients with acute coronary syndromes" warning that not eating breakfast and eating dinner before going to bed would increase the risk of recurrent and early death from cardiovascular disease by a factor of three to four.
According to a report from a professor at São Paulo State University in Brazil, one in ten patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) will die within a year, and paying attention to diet is a relatively inexpensive and simple way to improve this result.
He said that dinner should be carried out at least two hours before going to bed, breakfast should be relatively rich, because breakfast needs to provide 15% to 35% of the daily calories required. For breakfast, it is best to have dairy products (low-fat milk, yogurt and cheese), carbohydrates (whole wheat bread, cereals) and whole fruit.
The study pointed out that the study was conducted on 113 patients with an average age of 60 years, 73% of whom were men, who were asked about their diet after entering the coronary intensive care unit.
