Eating for health

Eating for health
Staying healthy can be a challenge, but lifestyle changes like eating healthfully and being physically active can help lower your risk for heart disease and other conditions.

One way to eat a healthy diet is to choose a variety of foods. Variety matters because no food has all the nutrients that your heart and the rest of your body need. 

A healthy eating plan is one that:

• Emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products.
• Includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts.
• Is low in saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol sodium, and added sugars.

Also, think about what you drink—choose non-alcoholic, low/no-calorie options such as water, skim milk, iced tea, club soda, diet soda, and sparkling beverages as a substitute for regular, sweetened beverages.

When it comes to eating healthfully, portion size also matters. Find recipes that are designed to give you a satisfying portion, while helping you stay within your calorie limits.
