Everything in Moderation

Sounds simple, right? Yet it's the best diet advice to follow for general heart health. Excess intake of any one kind of food can lead to serious heart diseases.

Eat and drink well. Like a car, your body needs good quality fuel to run smoothly. Stick to a sensible, well-balanced diet:

Start adapting your diet gradually. A sudden crash diet isn't much help when you want to change your long-term heart health. Make changes one at a time, such as replacing your regular sugary snack with some fruits or vegetables. Get your family, friends or colleagues on board to help support you too.

Find out some of the medical procedures available should you need to undergo heart treatment. With the correct insurance coverage, your bill size can be better gauged and managed, while Mount Elizabeth Hospitals can assist with all Medisave, MediShield Life and Integrated Shield Plan claims.
