Prevent Heart Disease

By living a healthy lifestyle, you can help keep your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels normal and lower your risk for heart disease and heart attack.

  • Eat more plants.  Mostly vegetables with some fruits, and eat less processed foods.

Eating a whole foods diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and getting enough physical activity can help you lower your risk for heart disease and stroke. Use this calendar to inspire a healthier lifestyle!
