Hypertension and Heart Disease

  • Balance calories with physical activity to manage weight.
  • Increase the variety of nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fat-free and low-fat dairy products and seafood.
  • Consume fewer foods with sodium (salt), saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, added sugars and refined grains.

Diabetes

  • Eat meals and snacks at regularly scheduled times.
  • Eat about the same amount of food at each meal or snack.
  • Choose healthful foods to support a healthy weight and heart including whole-grain breads, cereals, pastas and rice; vegetables and beans; fruits; lean meat, fish, poultry and tofu; low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese and yogurt; and healthy fats like olive oil.
  • Carbohydrates affect your blood sugar more than protein or fat. Keep track of the amount of total carbohydrates you eat each day.
