Book Description

Dec 28 2010


Coronary heart disease kills more Canadians than any other disease, and eight out of ten Canadians have at least one risk factor for developing it. The good news is that many risks factors for heart disease, such as high blood pressure and obesity, can be prevented or controlled by making heart healthy changes to your diet and lifestyle.
In Heart Healthy Foods for Life, leading Canadian nutritionist and registered dietitian Leslie Beck shows us how certain foods can contribute to developing risk factors for heart disease—and, ultimately, heart attack—and how others work to guard against them. This indispensable guide gives you all the tools you need to make smart food choices and explains how easy it is to turn heart healthy foods into delicious everyday meals. This essential book also includes valuable information on:

Understanding heart disease and assessing your personal risk
Meal plans to lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and prevent heart disease
Tips for grocery shopping and dining out
Strategies to maintain a healthy weight and increase exercise
Over 100 delicious heart healthy recipes with complete nutritional analyses
