Valentine’s Day is often associated with symbols of hearts and love. It’s fitting since
February is also National Heart Health Month. Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in the US? With a combination of education and awareness, we can prevent heart disease and save lives. So show your support and wear red all month long, and join us for our Nutrition Seminar to learn more about healthy eating!
Check out these 5 tips for maintaining a healthy heart:
1.) Maintain a healthy weight
2.) Strive for 120 minutes of moderate intensity exercise per week
3.) Eat a diet low in sodium and solid fats
4.) Increase your fiber intake
