Ask Dr. Gourmet

Can you advise me on a heart-healthy diet?

Could you please advise me on a healthy diet for my husband. He had two stents put in and I can't seem to find a healthy heart diet also his cholesterol and blood pressure are very high. Please I need help on what to cook to keep him healthy.

Dr. Gourmet Says...

It certainly sounds as if you are very concerned for your husband's diet. The diet that you will find on the Dr. Gourmet website is designed for to help people with heart disease as well as to help those who want to prevent heart disease.

You can use our diet planner, The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan (yes, it's free). You will be guided through steps to help you determine how many calories per day you and your husband should be eating. The plans include everything you need. You will find menus, recipes and even shopping lists.
