Check in with Your Heart Health

Heart disease might be the single greatest health problem facing Americans, but you can still do something about it. This video from the American Heart Association explains how adhering to “Life’s Simple 7” can significantly lower your risk for heart disease.

It begins with what you eat. Be sure to plan your meals around plenty of fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. Begin a regular exercise regimen to stay fit. Try to maintain a healthy weight. If you are obese, consult with a doctor about your bariatric weight loss options. Also, make a commitment to stop smoking today. You should also keep up with your physician checkups to monitor important health issues like your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar. By taking control of these factors, you can live a long and healthy life free from heart disease.
