    A healthy, balanced diet is the first step towards a healthy heart.

    Here are some dietary tips for a heart-healthy diet:

    1. Eat whole grains instead of refined products.
    2. Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
    3. Choose low-fat protein sources like lean meat, poultry, and fish.
    4. Once in a while, substitute animal protein with plant protein (for example, soy chunks instead of meat)
    5. Use low-fat substitutions (low-fat yogurt, low-fat butter).
    6. Limit sodium intake to less than 1 teaspoon a day.
