DIET DO'S!

According to the American Heart Association's Dietary Guidelines, try to include the following           recommendations to your new healthy diet:
  • DO eat more fruits and vegetables, at least 5 servings per day.

  • DO eat a variety of whole grain foods.

  • DO drink fat free or low fat milk.

  • DO get your protein from fish, skinless poultry (chicken or turkey), very lean meats, and legumes(beans).

  • Fats and oils should have no more than 2 grams of saturated fat per tablespoon.  This includes, olive oil, canola oil, certain liquid and tub margarines.  

Read the labels so you know what you are putting into your body!


DIET DON'TS!

These recommendations are so you can live a longer healthier life:
  • DON'T eat fried foods!

  • DON'T eat an excess of fatty meats & red meat!

  • DON'T eat a lot of egg yolks!

  • DON'T consume a lot of whole milk, cream & fatty cheeses!

  • DON'T abuse butter, margarine & oils.

  • DON'T put partially hydrogenated oils into your body!  If you see this on any food label, DO NOT eat it!  It is equal to putting sludge into your car.  It will clog your arteries!

  • Avoid  high fructose corn syrup!  Read the food labels.  There are healthier choices out there, you just have to know what to look for.  Look for naturally sweetened foods.

  • DON'T eat an abundance of candy, fatty snacks, potato chips, cookies or ice cream!  SORRY!

Eating a healthy diet may extend your stay here on this planet.  BLueAPPLe Health Scans hopes you decide to embark on a new adventure - a new eating plan.  Check with your doctor before beginning your fresh start.
