Heart Healthy Diet -
Eating and Diet For A Healthy Heart

In our Healthy Heart guide, we discussed factors which you can and cannot control that affects your heart's health condition, and one of the more important controllable factors is your diet. Following a Heart Healthy Diet can reduce your risk of heart related problems and diseases.

A heart healthy diet is about choosing a varied combination of healthy foods from the many recommended food groups. This is the first step in achieving a heart healthy diet. Aside from knowing what food groups to choose from, it's also important to understand the types of fats and how much fatty acid should be in your diet.

The quickest way to find out how much fat something has is to check its nutrition label. I have many articles on low fat eating, and you can find a quick list of health, low fat foods here. In general, for a heart healthy diet, if it's too much headache to keep track of all the foods and types of food you should eat, follow this simple guideline: Eat a lot of veggies, fruits, grains, and less meat products. Here's an excellent place to start.

For a more detailed guideline on a healthy heart diet, and fats and fatty acids, follow these guidelines:

  • Daily fat intake shouldn't exceed 30% of calories
  • Saturated fatty acid (the 'bad' type) should be less than 10% of calories
  • Polyunsaturated fats (the 'good' type) should be less than 10% of calories
  • Monounsaturated fats (the 'good' type) should be less than 15% of calories

For the above fat intake percentages, each works out to you consuming less than about 20 grams of each type of fat and fatty acid for a heart healthy diet.

Y'know, its such a hassle trying to keep track of this type of stuff for a heart healthy diet, I get headaches just thinking about it. So if you just follow that one rule-of-thumb I said above: Eat a lot of veggies, fruits, grains, and less meat products - you'll be on the right track to building a healthy heart and diet.
