Session: Cardiac Diet/Cardiac Nutrition
A healthy diet and lifestyle are the best weapons to fight against cardiovascular disease. It’s important to eat plenty of heart healthy foods, which includes fruits and vegetables, and foods which are rich in fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids. The overall goal of this diet is to reduce sodium and fat intake. Too much sodium can increase your blood pressure and it will lead to hypertension. Hypertension is the major risk factor of the cardiac attack and other heart problems. Some of the basic guidelines of the cardiac diet are:
• Not more than 25 to 35 % of daily calories should come from total fat.
• Avoiding trans fats.
• Consuming less than 200 milligrams a day of dietary cholesterol.
• Limiting salt intake; aiming for less than 2 grams of sodium per day or less
• Avoiding the usage of Tobacco.
• Taking regular medications as per the guidance.
