Focusing on nutrition is one of the best ways to decrease your cardiovascular risks at any point in time. However, after a cardiac event, it’s especially important to focus on nutrition.
Nutrition and Cardiac Rehab
Women who attend cardiac rehab often meet with a nutritionist or dietician who provides nutritional counseling. The staff evaluates female patients and creates customized diets for each woman.
A variety of topics may be discussed, ranging from general healthy eating to understanding calories, fruits, vegetables, dairy, fats, whole grains, sodium, fiber and more.
