“Do You Have To Get Your Diet Under Control Before
You Have A Heart Attack? It’s Understandable To Be
Scared, But It Doesn’t Have To Be A Problem For You.”
You see, it really hit home for me when I got in the back of a taxi cab and I was riding from the airport to my hotel for a conference.
The interaction went something like this with the taxi driver:
Him: “What are you in town for?”
Me: “I am going to a conference at the Marriott for Registered Dietitians”
Him: “Oh, you dietitians don’t know anything. You don’t understand that white bread is just like sugar. And you don’t care about what I have to do to eat healthy in my job. You have your plans and your charts and your fake foods but you don’t even listen to what we say. You don’t understand that I can’t always eat perfect and I need to know how to make choices in a lot of situations”
Me: “Umm, Okay.”
I was stunned, as I did not even know this person but he obviously felt I was part of a group of people who have not been helpful to him!
I had an AHA! moment, medical professionals really do make it hard for people to control their diet while living in the real world and trying to get by in the day to day life. A taxi driver can’t just stop and eat lunch and have all the right foods, and he has to have choices to make a better plan. It’s important to help people find a meal plan that fits around real life and daily life – he can’t eat regular meals, he has strange hours and must eat on the run.
You need someone to explain to you in simple terms about a diet that is for real people living in the real world.
You may have heart disease, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure and your doctor says – “Follow a low fat/low cholesterol diet”. However, they very seldom tell you how to do that. You are not alone, and other people have found a way past this difficult time. They have found a way to control their cholesterol.
Simple rules like – Stop eating red meat or eat more vegetables are nice guidelines but not really clear enough for you to follow for a long time. You see, after I got read the riot act by the taxi driver, I knew I had to make this plan that would help you to eat better and follow what you needed to do to get your meals and eating under control.
Designed as a meal plan for real people living in the REAL WORLD who need the flexibility of being able to adjust to their circumstances on a daily basis. It meets the “guidelines” to make it a cardiac or heart healthy diet, but it does not limit you to only certain foods.
Designed specifically for you, this meal plan will meet your needs to control your cholesterol levels and feel full all day!
We understand and have created your cardiac diet meal plans to meet your need for a variety of foods, shopping lists, nutritional information, and diet compliance! We have meal patterns for the entire day – and lists of choices for breakfast, lunch and snacks. Then we have dinner recipes that are new every week.
By following a cardiac diet menu, you can make your doctor happy and help meet your medical care goals – which should mean less complications and medications in the long run.
It will save you time – it will give you the items you need to eat to succeed at controlling your blood cholesterol and saturated fat.
How much time do you spend planning your meals? Probably not enough, right? You are way too busy.
But you know that you should do some planning – and this will do it for you and you just make some minor choices.
This meal planning tool will make your shopping easy and give you less hassle with your day
You get the meals for dinner to make for your family (meals are made to be great for all, not just a heart healthy diet), and you get two different kinds of shopping lists (one by meal and one by area of store)
The shopping lists are easy for you to take to the store, or just give to someone to shop for you. Cross out what you don’t need and you have dinners for a week.
The only things you have to add are the items you plan to eat for breakfast, snacks, and lunches
How do you know what to eat for breakfast, snacks and lunches? You get a meal pattern that gives you the flexibility of choosing from the different food types (fruits for example) and create your meals for the day. Add those items to the shopping list, and you are ready for the week.
You won’t be bored, we have new recipes every week and a variety of meals – beef, chicken, turkey, vegetarian and fish.
It is done for you but it is done in a way to help you succeed – not the way that works for me – you get to make it into the way it works for you to CONTROL YOUR CHOLESTEROL
Enough of the doom and gloom, though! Imagine what your day would be like to already know what you will have for dinner? Is that not a huge weight off your shoulders every single day? And you can take the leftovers, refrigerate them, and make lunch the next day. Plus you get a grocery list that shows what you need to buy at the store (or find in the cabinets) so you are making less trips to the store to keep up.
Wow, you might get some time back in your day to relax… Best of all, it’s not convenience foods that are the wrong things for your health – these are recipes that will make you healthier and keep you feeling great – as a FAMILY. Not just special foods for one person, but food your entire family can eat.
If you want to know specifics, this plan gives you (at each meal – which includes the entree and side dish(es)) a meal that contains less than 32% calories from fat (including sides), less than 12% calories from saturated fat, and less than 600 mg sodium per meal. This provides the established appropriate amount for a low sodium diet and those on a cardiac diet to eat. It follows the nationally recognized standards for your needs, and is what your doctor wants you to do!
Information on the meal plan is shown by recipe, and each grouping meets the restrictions for your cardiac diet meal plan you need to allow you to follow a cholesterol lowering diet.
What if you don’t need to feed 4-6 people – cut the recipes in half, or save part for the next day at lunch or snack.
When you get your meal plan every week, you also get an itemized grocery list for the meal plan which means you save gas from less trips to the grocery store because you have a list/plan to follow. You also do not have to read all the labels and try to figure out right there in the store if something is OK for your diet – you save time.
Our plans also include a pattern for the entire day with amounts of foods to eat in different categories, broken down into meals. In addition, to complete the plan – you get a sheet with your breakfast and lunch meals that have suggested amounts and foods that fit into the different categories.
