    Guide to a Healthy Heart

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States in both men and women. To combat that somber statistic, Turf Valley strongly supports maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and is recognized as a Gold Level Recipient of American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly Worksites Recognition Program for its efforts. In honor of American Heart Month in February, we’re sharing some tips on preventing heart disease.

    1. Control portion size. It may be hard to distinguish how much is too much, but with this guide eating right becomes much easier! 

    2. Eat fruits and vegetables—According to Mayo Clinic, fruits and vegetables contain substances from plants that may help prevent cardiovascular disease; they advise to always buy fresh or frozen vegetables, low-sodium canned, or canned fruit packed in juice or water if possible. 

    3. Eat low-fat protein sources—popular choices include fish, especially salmon, low-fat milk, yogurt, and cheese; soybeans, egg whites, and skinless poultry.

    4. Eat whole grains—The U.S. Office of Women’s Health recommends that at least half of your grains be whole grains. Whole grain options include whole-grain bread, oatmeal, whole-grain pasta, high-fiber cereal, whole-wheat flour, brown rice, and more. 

    5. Limit saturated and trans fat, and lower cholesterol. This chart created by Mayo Clinic describes the American Heart Association’s suggestions on daily intake: 


    6. Moderate alcohol—the American Heart Association states that studies have found that alcohol in moderation (no more than two glasses a day) increases level of HDL Cholesterol, which is the good kind of cholesterol for your body.

    By maintaining these steps in your diet, combined with exercise, the chances of heart disease decrease tremendously! Help yourself by living a healthy lifestyle and support American Heart Association.
