Tips for Healthy Eating
Cook at Home– Fast food and convenience foods are usually filled with unwanted calories. Plan ahead and take healthy snacks and meals with you. Make healthy food convenient.Avoid hunger– Blood sugar dips when your body is hungry and causes “hunger.” Try to eat 3 small meals and 2-3 snacks per day to speed up metabolism by regulating blood sugar.Fats – Limit saturated and trans fats.
Sodium – Extra salt is hidden in processed foods and snacks.
Sugar and Carbohydrates – Most Americans are consuming way more added sugars than the AHA recommends. Keeping tabs on what type and how much sugar you’re eating is an important part of a heart-healthy lifestyle. Learn what the AHA recommends here. Opt for whole wheat when possible.
Suggested Servings from Each Food Group – Many Americans unknowingly over eat. Watch portion sizes and read food labels to prevent overeating and unwanted calories.
Alcohol– It’s important to limit alcohol intake.
Involve Your Family– Making healthy choices for yourself is great. Involving your family is even better.
