Tools for Maintaining a Tip-Top Ticker
Cardiovascular disease affects more that 7% of Americans over the age of 20 and is the leading cause of death among men and women in the United States. While some factors that play a role in the development of cardiovascular disease — like gender, genetics, and age — are largely out of our control, we can make adjustments to our diets for better heart health while eating many of the delicious foods we already love.
The typical American diet consists of many foods that are high in calories, saturated fat, sodium and added sugar, which lead to increased blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels. By incorporating more fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants into our diets, and avoiding overly-processed foods we can help reduce our risk of developing the chronic conditions that contribute to cardiovascular disease.
When you join the Heart-Smart Nutrition Program, you'll have the support of your personal dietitian, plus all the tools and tips you need to improve your heart health.
