Mick Jagger recovering after heart surgery: report

Mick Jagger underwent a heart valve procedure in New York, and is now recovering and in great health, according to a new report.

The iconic 75-year-old Rolling Stones frontman is currently being monitoried by doctors for any complications, sources told Billboard.

Jagger will need rest after the transcatheter aortic valve replacement, a minimally invasive procedure, and could be up and moving in several days, according to the report. He will also need additional time to recover before going back to performing.

The band had earlier released a statement saying they were postponing their upcoming "No Filter" US tour, which was scheduled to start later this month: "Mick Jagger has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time as he needs medical treatment...The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible."

Jagger had also previously tweeted, "I'm so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets."

"I really hate letting you down like this. I'm devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone."

Reps for Jagger did not return Billboard's request for comment.

How to stick to a heart-healthy diet

1. Addition and substitution (not deprivation)

"Yes, you should avoid foods high in unhealthy fats and sugar," says Latimer. "But instead of focusing on what you can't have, focus on what you can enjoy. 

2. Increase fiber in your diet without supplements

Fruits, vegetables and beans are packed with fiber with whole grains: Steel cut oats and berries for breakfast, brown rice, beans and vegetables for lunch and dinner.

3. Try this perfect heart healthy lunch

A salad with leafy greens, tomatoes, salmon and a little olive oil. Kale and spinach are also high in vitamin K and will help boost your heart health. Tomatoes are a fantastic source of antioxidants, while salmon is packed with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Toss in avocado (for blood pressure and fiber) for a filling and healthy meal. 

Olive oil is a good fat and has been shown to reduce cholesterol 

4. Nuts make the perfect snack 

Snack on walnuts, almonds and peanuts which are filled with omega-3s, fibers and vitamin E to lower cholesterol and decrease risk for clots. 

5. Keep fruits and veggies on-hand for easy access

A full fridge can reduce your cravings and mindless eating. A cup of anti-inflammatory green tea once a day can also do wonders. 

6. Moderate intake of red wine

Some studies prove red wine, dark chocolate and coffee have been linked to better heart health. Cheers!
