Small changes can make a big difference to your health. Try incorporating at least six of the eight goals below into your diet. Commit to incorporating one new healthy eating goal each week over the next six weeks. Choose red, orange, and dark-green vegetables like tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and broccoli, along with other vegetables for your meals. Add fruit to meals as part of main or side dishes or as dessert. The more colorful you make your plate, the more likely you are to get the vitamins, minerals, and fiber your body needs to be healthy. An easy way to eat more whole grains is to switch from a refined-grain food to a whole-grain food. For example, eat whole-wheat bread instead of white bread. Read the ingredients list and choose products that list a whole-grain ingredients first. Both have the same amount of calcium and other essential nutrients as whole milk, but fewer calories and less saturated fat.
Want to jump-start your diet and nutrition for improved heart health? Not sure where to begin? Rest assured, this is the last eating plan you will ever have to start! That is, if you are committed to the idea of a healthy lifestyle, and not just another diet. Avoiding all indulgent foods and following a temporary low-calorie, unpleasant eating regimen is not sustainable as a lifestyle. Rather, the best way to start eating for a healthy lifestyle is by making one or two small changes at a time to your usual eating habits. These will be your goals, so make them changes you can live with. Give yourself some time and don’t expect to drastically change what you eat overnight. Keep in mind that new behaviors take up to a month to become habit.
