Answer: Eating foods rich in potassium balances out any salt you have consumed that has damaged the balance. As well as almonds, foods rich in potassiuminclude bananas, potatoes and green leafy vegetables. Almonds are great for heart health in other ways too. Indeed, eating a handful - or 30g a day - can lower cholesterol levels by five to ten per cent.

Question: high BP in 16 the week.. weight 118 kgs.. how to protect my baby
Answer: Avoid excessive sugary or fatty foods as these contain empty calories and, although tasty, don't help keep your weight stable.Eat lots of fruit and vegetables with lean meat or fish.Remember that potatoes and bread are not fattening until you put butter on them.Brown or wholemeal bread is more filling than the white variety, as is brown rice compared to white.Alcoholic drinks are best avoided as they are not recommended for either mother-to-be or baby – fruit juice with sparkling mineral water is a good alternative.If you feel an attack of the nibbles coming on, opt for dried fruit and a glass of water, this will help fill you up and avoid constipation, which is a common side effect of pregnancy.
