March Is National Nutrition Month

The American Heart Association is encouraging heart-smart choices during the month of March which is Nutrition Month.  National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign conducted by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

A healthy diet and lifestyle are the best weapons in the fight against heart disease which is the number one killer of Americans.  The American Heart Association reports that according to the New England Journal of Medicine cardiovascular disease is largely preventable.  The report concludes that adhering to five lifestyle choices including diet, exercise and non-smoking, may prevent up to 83% of coronary events. The American Heart Association recommends:

At least 4.5 cups of fruits and vegetables daily

At least two 3.5 ounce servings of fish (preferably oily fish) per week

Fiber-rich whole grains:  At least three 1-ounce-equivalent servings a day

Limiting sodium:  Less than 1,500 mg a day

No more than 450 calories (36 ounces) a week of sugar-sweetened beverages

For more information on living a healthier lifestyle contact the American Heart Association at 1-800-AHA-USA1 or go online at www.heart.org.
