Health Tip: Eating a Healthy Diet

-- Eating well doesn't have to mean dieting or going hungry.

The American Heart Association advises:

  • Follow a simple, nutritious eating plan. Avoid fad diets.
  • Instead of quitting your favorite treats cold turkey, shrink portion sizes.
  • Bulk up on foods high in fiber, such as whole grains, fruit, vegetables and legumes. These will help you feel fuller and more satisfied.
  • Don't buy high-sugar beverages or other foods with empty calories. Keeping them out of your home will help you avoid temptation.
