2 Do You Know? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 70% of all deaths in the United States are due to chronic diseases. Lack of physical activity, tobacco use, not consuming enough fruits and vegetables, and drinking too much alcohol are common causes of chronic disease. According to the CDC, heart disease, cancer and stroke are the most common types of chronic diseases. With the exception of genetic risk factors, these chronic diseases can be prevented.
3 The Statistics 85% rank diet/nutrition important personally 25% of Americans eat 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day Average vegetable intake is 1.4 cups a day Average fruit intake is. 8 servings a day

6 American Heart Association: The Steps For a Heart Healthy Lifestyle Balance the number of calories you eat and physical activity to maintain a healthy body weight (this means not eating more calories than you need). Make your diet rich in fruits and vegetables. A typical adult should try for 9-10 servings (4.5 cups) of fruits and vegetables every day. Choose whole grains and high-fiber foods (Three 1- oz. servings per day). Eat fish, especially oily fish like salmon or albacore tuna, twice a week to get omega-3 fatty acids. Limit saturated and trans fat and cholesterol
7 The Steps Limit the amount of added sugars you consume to no more than half of your daily discretionary calorie allowance. Limit sugar-sweetened beverages to no more than 450 calories (36 oz.) per week. Choose and prepare foods with little or no salt (sodium) to maintain a healthy blood pressure. Keep sodium intake to 1,500 mg per day or less. Limit processed meat (such as sandwich meat, sausage and hot dogs) to fewer than two servings per week.
8 The Steps Try to eat four servings per week of nuts, seeds or legumes (beans). If you choose to consume alcohol, do so in moderation. This means an average of one to two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women. If you eat out, pay attention to portion size and the number of calories in your meal
