Heart Smart Exercise & Eating Tips

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off
IMG_3932LET’S GET MOVING!
Regular exercise and eating habits are key to having a healthy heart and a great quality of life. For those of us who struggle to eat well and stay active, here are a few tips:
Exercise Tips
Tip #1: Commit to exercising or participating in a physical activity on a regular basis. The same exercise plan to abate diabetes can keep your heart healthy.
Tip #2: Try to get at least 150 minutes of aerobic exercise each week. Exercise or physical activity can be broken into three types: cardio or endurance, resistance or strength building, flexibility or functional.
Healthy Eating Tips
Tip #1: Use monounsaturated fats like olive oil or canola oil in the cooking process.
Tip #2: When preparing food, bake, broil, stew or grill rather than fry.
Tip #3: Choose lean meats rather than fatty meats. A choice that allows one to cut the fat away can still be an option. A piece of meat that has the fat marbled or streaked through it may not be as healthy.
Tip #4: Eat fish two to three times weekly.
Tip #5: Reduce the consumption of salty foods. Large intakes of sodium or salt can affect blood pressure.
Tip #6: Become an expert label reader. Both the ingredient list and the nutrition facts section can identify the amount of sodium that is in the food. Remember that sodium hides in processed food products.
Overall, let’s work hard to eat better and increase our mobility! We can do it!
All exercise or physical activity plans need to be discussed with one’s physician before the initiation of the program.
