Nutrition and Cardiovascular Health
goes a long way to improving or maintaining heart health. Eating the right foods will help
reduce your blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, assist in achieving and/or maintaining a healthy body weight, and help reduce or prevent
high blood pressure.
In this extract from your "Building a Better Life With Cardiovascular Disease" booklet, which you will receive when you join the program, you will learn more about the cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugars in your body, and how dietary fats affect your blood cholesterol and heart health.
You will also
find ideas on safe methods
of weight loss or control,
as well as helpful tips on interpreting food labels, lowering your
fat intake, sugar and the sodium in your diet, and increasing the fibre – in short, a heart healthy diet – at home or when eating out.
