Successful Heart Health Diet
I was diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease last October, which required changes in diet and exercise to manage. I also take a statin to lower LDL cholesterol . Change is difficult.
In addition to changes to my exercise routine to make it more heart-centered, I have made a number of modifications to my diet, all of which are recommended by the American Heart Association. These changes have been slow and accumulative over the past six months, but I have made all the major modifications I hoped to make. Now it is a matter of fine-tuning my diet. Cronometer has been an invaluable help in tracking my nutrition over the last six months. Without it's simple-to-use food entry system and nutritional data, I know I could not have made the progress I have made. My diet is now heart-healthy and I will reap the benefits, hopefully for years to come.
