Here are Dr. Cobble's heart-healthy ABC's for 2010:


    A.  Active: Be active every day -- take the stairs, park further away,
        buy a push lawn mower. Find ways to move your muscles, clap your
        hands, move your feet.
    B.  Breakfast daily: Start each day with a good breakfast, including
        dairy, fiber and fruit. Select items such as whole grain toast, low
        or fat-free milk, bananas, pears and high-fiber oatmeal with nuts
        and berries.
    C.  Cholesterol management: Get an advanced test that tells you and your
        doctor about the dangerous cholesterol -- directly measured LDL,
        non-HDL, apoB and subparticles -- that can hurt your arteries. The
        Vertical Auto Profile (VAP) lipid test from Atherotech is one such
        test.
    D.  Diet: Think moderation, balance and "heart healthy" throughout the
        day. Eat fruits, veggies, fiber, complex carbs, proteins and healthy
        fats. Experience European dining with each meal.
    E.  Exercise: Exercise daily -- walk at lunch with coworkers, before or
        after work with your pets, join in team sports or find an outlet
        that gets your heart pumping for at least 30 minutes a day.
    F.  Fiber is your friend: Read the nutrition label on foods so you know
        what you're eating and to better manage your cholesterol, fiber and
        other nutrients.
    G.  Glucose in moderation: Too much sugar and starch contribute to
        diabetes. Get tested for diabetes with a blood glucose test, and cut
        back on pasta, potatoes, sodas, ice cream and fast food.
    H.  Healthy lifestyle: Lead a healthy lifestyle, which means no smoking,
        seeing your clinician every year for a physical, and laughing often.
        Spend time with friends, kids and grandkids.
    I.  Imagine: Use your imagination to enjoy life and get the most out of
        each and every day. Have fun, do what you love and what makes you
        happy.
