Feed Your Heart Well Eating Plan


Eating a low-fat diet does not ensure you are:

  • Taking in the least amount of calories
  • Eating the right amount of nutrient
  • Getting the most health benefits to decrease your risk for heart disease

How do you put it all together in your daily meal plan?
The Cleveland Clinic Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation Program has created a nutrition plan that focuses on nutrition enhancement not nutrition deprivation. It incorporates the nutrition strategies to decrease your risk factors, and the essential power foods to boost your energy and health-protection potential.
This menu system is based on a 1600-calorie diet. If you are diabetic, this menu plan will still work for you! The carbohydrates are distributed evenly throughout the day and there is adequate protein at snacks and each meal. The menu supplies less than 30 percent of the daily calories as fat, and the fat used is monounsaturated whenever possible.
