5 Tips for a Healthy Heart

5 Tips for a Healthy Heart

The Center for Disease Control recommends these five tips to help improve your heart health:

1. Eat a healthy, well balanced diet

At Aveon, we recommend nutrient rich vegetables, lean proteins, and limited complex carbohydrates. Avoid juice, sugary drinks, and soda.

2. Maintain a healthy weight

A BMI above 25 is considered to be overweight, and above 30 is obese. We can help you reach your weight goals, with safe and effective nonsurgical interventions.

3. Stay physically active

Adults should spend a minimum of 2.5 hours of cardiovascular exercise such as biking, hiking, swimming, or brisk walking. If you suffer from joint pain that is limiting your ability to exercise, our Aveon team can help get you moving again.

4. Quit or Avoid Tobacco

Using tobacco of any kind (cigarettes, hooka, cigars, chew, pipes, vapes) is related to serious health conditions. If you are ready to quit, ask your Aveon provider for more information.

5. Limit Alcohol Consumption

Excessive drinking can lead to health and legal issues. If you or a family member has concerns about their alcohol intake, reach out to your Aveon provider for help.
