National Wear Red Day 2018

Did you know that heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – more than all cancers combined? Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action.

Today, Friday, February 2nd, 2018 is the American Heart Association's 'National Wear Red Day'!  Medical Weight Loss Clinic encourages our patients to join us by participating in 'National Wear Red Day', to promote education about heart disease, stroke, and living a healthy lifestyle.

You can 'Go Red' by eating a healthy diet, following an exercise routine, visiting your doctor for regular health tests, and influencing others by talking about heart health.

Let's Unite on 'National Wear Red Day'!

February is American Heart Month

Did you know that an average of 2,200 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day?  That’s an average of one death every 40 seconds.  Fortunately, we can make a change in these numbers!

February is ‘American Heart Month‘, which focuses on educating individuals about heart disease and stroke, what the risk factors are, and how to prevent these conditions.

The best way to achieve a lower risk of heart disease and stroke is by eating a heart healthy diet, in proper portions, and by being regularly physically active.  February is the perfect time to start making small changes to your lifestyle, that can lead to a lifetime of heart health.

Here are a few ways to celebrate 'American Heart Month':

  • Encourage your family to make small diet changes with you, for example, swapping salt out with other spices to season meals.
  • Schedule a visit with your doctor, and talk about heart health!  Knowing your numbers (blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose) is important in determining your risk for heart disease.  Don't be afraid to ask questions!
  • Exercise regularly.  Start small, for example parking farther away at the store.
  • Eat healthy!  Follow your meal plan, and include variety.
  • If you smoke, work on quitting!
