Heart-Healthy Diet Guidelines

By EatingWell Editors

Learn how to improve your heart health by watching your weight, eating more vegetables and fruits, filling up on fiber and more.

If you drink alcohol, do it in moderation

If you consume alcohol, do so “moderately”—that’s two drinks per day for men, one drink for women. And while studies link moderate alcohol intake with reduced risk of heart disease, it doesn’t mean that teetotalers should take up drinking. Alcohol can be addictive and high intakes can contribute to hypertension.
