A healthy diet is an important part of keeping your heart healthy. It’s also important in caring for your heart if you already have heart disease. Don’t know where to start? Then let one of our registered dietitians help you put together a healthy eating plan that is specially designed for your needs and tastes.
During your consultation, your personal dietitian will:
- Review information from your cardiovascular health screening (such as cholesterol and blood pressure)
- Talk with you about your eating habits (such as eating too many foods that are high in saturated fat) and help you understand how these may increase your risk for disease
- Educate you on foods that can help lower your risk of heart disease.
When combined with physical exercise and a healthy lifestyle, healthy eating can help you maintain your ideal body weight—and that’s good for your heart.
