Practice Portion Control to CutCalories and Lose Weight
Watch not only what you eat, but how much you eat.
There's strong evidence that people with heart disease or its risk factors benefit from eating more of certain foods and less of others. That's why many cardiologists recommend the Mediterranean diet, Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet or plant-based vegetarian or vegan diets. All have been proven to lower the risk of heart disease, heart attack and stroke. But if your goal is to lose weight, you also have to watch how much you eat, keeping an eye on portion control.
