Our Heart Healthy Meal Plans help to fight cardiovascular disease with recipes that contribute to healthy cholesterol levels, healthy triglyceride levels, and help to fight hypertension. With these healthy recipes, heart and health go hand-in-hand to keep your heart in good shape. This heart healthy diet is inspired by the Mediterranean Diet and the DASH Diet (created to reduce hypertension), and assures optimal nutrition easily and efficiently while letting you enjoy your food.
The Meal Plan consists of heart healthy recipes that help prevent heart disease, stroke, and recurrence of cardiovascular problems. A heart healthy diet is recommended for people suffering from high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia), and/or hypertriglyceridemia. Our personalised meal plans include the most possible heart healthy foods and transform them into delicious healthy recipes to reduce high blood pressure and bad cholesterol (LDL) while favouring good cholesterol (HDL). These delicious meals plans also help to control weight and blood sugar.

We recommend that you consult your doctor and/or a registered dietitian that will give you the best advice in this regard.
This being said, you can choose one of the Diabetes Meal Plans, offered in three caloric levels: 1,500, 1,700 and 2,100 calories per day. To lose weight, you must choose a caloric level that is lower than your energy needs. A deficit of 500 calories per day will typically allow you to lose one pound (half a kilogram) per week, which is safe. Calculate your energy needs. If, for example, your energy requirement is 2,000 calories, choose the 1,500-calorie Meal Plans to achieve weight loss. Most of our female subscribers choose the 1,500-calorie Meal Plans, and most male subscribers choose the 1,700-calorie Meal Plans.
