It wasn't long before Sarel Loots, or Sarel Van Sabie as he was affectionately know by million, became a firm favourite in the last season of Masterchef South Africa.
He had such a warmth about him and he was shy but confident about his cooking.
And rightly so!
Because of his culinary skills, he walked away with fourth place in the first season of the cooking show.
But it's with a shock that we share this sad news about him … He died of a sudden heart attack at the age of 45, early this morning.
And while you think about him and his family, don't forget that there's a message in his death: Look after your heart and your health!
Here are two ways to change your lifestyle to ensure you maintain good heart health.

Newsflash: Heart Attacks NOT Triggered by Plaque
Most doctors just don’t take the time.
They don’t bother to try to understand the real cause of high cholesterol, plaque buildup, or even a heart attack.
Luckily, some brave doctors are finally telling the truth about the #1 killer…and what really causes—and treats—heart disease
. Like the natural supplement a Mayo Clinic professor prescribes to all his heart patients…and the natural nutrient from fruit that has been shown to lower cholesterol safer than a well-known prescription drug.
Discover all the details on these and more, HERE.
Take the necessary steps to ensure your heart health is in top form
#1. Change your diet:
Making small tweaks to your diet is one of the best ways to improve your heart health.
Cutting back on salt and salt-containing foods is essential. This because salt causes your blood pressure
to increase and it puts a strain on your heart. Living with uncontrolled hypertension is one of the leading causes of heart attacks. And it’s preventable.
Eat only fats that are good for you
. Like those in fatty fish, avos, nuts and seeds. These keep your heart health in good shape and help lower your cholesterol levels.
#2. Make exercise a part of your daily life: Just walking for 10 minutes at a time
, three times a day is enough to bring your risk of heart failure down.
So add moderate exercise to your daily life, including activities that raise your heart rate, to drastically improve your heart health. Don’t dismiss this essential lifestyle choice when you’re trying to improve your overall health.
As you can see, changing your heart health starts with these two simple changes. So make them in your life starting today!
