“Healthy eating is not about strict nutrition philosophies, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, and keeping yourself as healthy as possible” (Paul and Toscano 2009). Healthful eating combined with regular exercise not only reduces the risk for certain diseases, but also improves the quality of health. By lowering the chance for certain disease, improving the mind, and boosting self confidence, healthful eating, and exercise can greatly benefit everyone. Heart disease is the number one leading cause of death in the United States per year. Over 631.636 people die each year from heart related disease per year (CDC). By following a heart healthy diet chances of heart diseases can be cut dramatically. The risk factors for heart disease are well-known by most people. The risk can be put into two categories: Modifiable and unmodifiable. Risk factors for heart disease that are unmodifiable meaning that they cannot be changed are sex, age, and family history. Risk factors that can be modified, meaning they can be changed, are smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, significant obesity, and diabetes.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
