Heart Healthy Medical Nutrition Therapy

A healthy heart needs a healthy diet. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans offers two examples of eating plans to choose from, and also includes advice for overall health and food safety.

These guidelines encourage you to choose:

  • A variety of grains daily; half of your daily grains should come from whole grains.
  • A variety of fruits and vegetables daily.
  • A diet that is low in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol.
  • Foods and beverages that are low in added sugar.
  • And prepare foods with little salt.

If you drink alcoholic beverages, do so in moderation. Aim for a healthy weight. Be physically active most days. Balance the calories you take in with the calories you expend through physical activity. Keep foods safe to eat.

One of our registered dietitians can help personalize a meal plan to fit your needs.
