A Heart-healthy Diet: What’s on Your Plate?
A healthy diet is a major factor in reducing your risk for heart disease but eating healthy doesn’t have to mean dieting or giving up your favorite foods completely. Try these tips:
- Include fruits and vegetables at every meal or snack
- Choose healthy proteins
- Cut down on sugar
- Know the facts on fats
If you have a heart condition, such as heart failure, or other health problems, such as diabetes, you should talk with your health care provider about what type of diet is best for you.
