If you or one of your friends has been diagnosed with a cardiovascular disorder, there are bound to be some restrictions regarding the diet. Be sure to follow all restrictions imposed by the physician on your diet for the most effective and quick treatment.
The first and foremost point to be considered is the portion of food one ingests. It should be a controlled intake rather than a random and haphazard one. The servings you take do matter and go a long way in maintaining a healthy personality.
Begin your efforts in this direction by controlling the size of the plate or bowl you use. A large plate or large bowl is more likely to point towards helping yourself to larger portions of food. There should be a healthy quantity of fruits and vegetables in the diet. This is going to make sure you get a sufficient amount of roughage in your diet, which in turn is going to point to a good and healthy bowel movement. This is your passport to a healthy life.
If you are serious about tackling cardiovascular disorder by pushing down the calories using the dietary route, you should keep a good record of the amount of calories you take in. This is going to mean a record of the number of servings you take in, besides a record of the size of each serving.
Keep the change in weight effected by your efforts in mind when you move to the next step. The scale of measurement is also important here. Avoid using vague scales like 'a cup', and head for specific measurements like an ounce.
