Healthy Heart Resolutions for New Year 2013

Permanent Link to Healthy Heart Resolutions for New Year 2013

The New Year is a perfect time to reflect on the past 12 months and assess what habits you want to take with you, and what you want to leave in 2012. Yes, resolutions can both feel and be hard to keep, but they don’t have to be. “Usually when people fail to accomplish their mission for a healthier life they don’t set achievable goals and have a lack of commitment,” says Maribet Rivera-Brut, nutritionist and American Heart Association volunteer. “And ‘commitment’ is the key word here.”
It takes 21 days to make a habit and only one day to break it, says Maribet, so keep your focus. To ensure success, follow these rules:
  • Create realistic goals and strategies. “Set a goal you know you can keep,” says Maribet. If you are trying to eat more vegetables, don’t start by gorging yourself. Pace yourself.”
  • Keep it simple. If you aren’t used to eating something, try gradually adding it to your diet, suggests Maribet suggested. Not a fan of greens? Try mixing a small amount of frozen spinach to smoothies. Not sure you’ll like quinoa? Add a scoop to salads to help get used to the taste and texture.
  • Be patient. “We need to accept the fact that we followed the same lifestyle for a very long time,” says Maribet. “Changing it isn’t always easy.” And remember, it’s OK to slip up sometimes – just remember to get back on track.
  • Ready to get started? Here are five easy, heart healthy resolutions for every lifestyle.

    1. Drink more water
    You’ve heard it time and again, but the fact remains: Drinking the right amount water is a key ingredient in staying healthy. If you’re drinking more water, you’ll have less room for sugary sodas – which is a good thing. “More than half of the calories we consume everyday come from sweetened beverages,” says Maribet. “Many people forget the cheapest drink is readily available in our houses – known as water.” If you’re looking for more ways to get your eight glasses a day, check out this list.
    2. Go green
    Make 2013 the year of the kale chip – not the tortilla chip. By keeping your cabinets stocked with heart healthy fruits and vegetables you are in better shape to stick to your resolution. And if fresh doesn’t work with your schedule or habits, remember you can get frozen or canned. Just be sure to rinse canned fruits and vegetables, as they may contain added salts and sugars.
    3. Eat seasonally
    Good for your budget and waistline, eating seasonally means you are getting food at it’s peak performance and flavor level. (Farmers’ market bounty varies by season, so before you head out take a look at this list.) Additionally, you’ll be supporting your local community and farmers, which is always a great resolution as well.
    4. Cut out processed food
    Just do it. Decide that 2013 is going to be the year you say no to aspartame, high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oil. In addition to chemicals you’re body doesn’t need or want, processed foods are full of added salt. Higher salt intake puts you at risk for high blood pressure. In fact, 75 percent of the salt in the average American diet comes from salt added to processed food and restaurant food, according to the American Heart Association. So take control and cut out salt where you can.
    5. Eat more fiber
    Crucial to heart health and reducing the risk of heart disease, fiber is easy to add to your diet. Whole grains are filled with fiber, which makes digestion easier and helps you feel fuller when you’re done eating – both key factors in weight management.

The Heart check goes easy way

Are you one among them who have tried a lot for seeking an appointment with your cardiologist, for heart check. Gone are those days, with a new device yet to hit markets soon, you are going to save money as well time associated with the heart check.
Indian Scientist Dr Ravi Mehrotra, of  CSIR-NPL (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, National Physical Laboratory), and thirty of his students at CSIR-NPL had invented a device that lets you get your heart checked in ten minutes. It fits into the palm of your  hand.

He says, "It is a full 12 lead device. It measures simultaneously all the 12 signals that a doctor needs. The software saves patient information and the final ECG. Records can be emailed and shared with experts."


How it works ?

Maximum time taken is 10 Minutes for the heart check.
Technicians at your local clinic will wire you up, with leads on your limbs and chest. Your body’s electrical signals will flow first into a box called HeartTrace and then, into a computer and ECG will be ready in seconds.
It’s as quick and hassle-free as a simple blood test. The estimated price is around Rs 10,000 -15,000/-
The reason it is so cheap, is technology. HeartTrace has no moving parts inside - just a printed circuit board. But burned into those circuits, is special software Dr Mehrotra wrote himself.

Affordable pricing :

Being, affordable pricing the device can easly get its presence across India ,even in smaller villages and towns. With its price one can get a brandable SMART PHONE.
This heart check device certainly going to bring a great change in the health sector of India. Main USP being is its time taken for a test is very minimal besides the cost. Further, most of us have a phobia ,being visited to large corporate hospitals. This can be overcome as you can have a smiliar ECG report from the heart check device by visiting your local hospital or family doctor.
Do check this space, will update more information on this device....
