rip to the dude. imo diet prolly had a lot to do with it if it wasn't drugs. cheesesteak factory? ppl need to realize the effects of meat in one's diet. we eat so much of a cow in our diets and we're really not designed to consume meat like that. i bet you it was heart related....im just guessing though. still, 29 is awfully young to go.
Nah man, fat and meat have nothing to do with heart attacks or heart disease (unless you just completely over eat, in which anything is bad for you when you do that.) Ask any legit doctor or nutritionist. It's inflammation which causes both. Inflammation mostly caused by sugar, grains and starch (which we are relatively new to the human diet compared to meat and plants.)
There's been a lot of disinformation from animal rights groups about meat and specifically fat and saturated fat. Both of which aren't bad for you.
People don't get fat because they eat fat. People get fat because they eat sugar, and other complex foods the body isn't designed to break down so it just turns it into fat. Humans have been eating fat for ages, and actually, fat is a way better energy source than carbs. The human body knows fat, complex carbs are still kind of alien to it. That's the main culprit for heart disease and the obesity problem.
One of the biggest mistakes people on diets do is eat a low fat diet. The fat is replaced by carbs usually in these foods that scream "LOW FAT" so unless they do some insane exercise they see limited results. You want to lose fat? EAT FAT. That's right, your body stores fat as emergency energy. Which means, if your body isn't getting fat, it panics and turns carbs and excess protein into fat because it thinks you're starving. If you eat fat, your body knows fat is coming in, so it burns the fat it already has as energy. The problem these days is we all think carbs when we think energy. For athletes this works better, but for the regular person, fat is the better food you should look at as energy if you want a lean, healthy functioning body.
