Lifestyle Interventions Needed to Stay Heart-Healthy
Date:7/12/2010

with a healthcare provider or mentor, the more likely you are to get weight off, keep it off and minimize your future heart risks.

But it's going to take more than individual efforts to effect any kind of lasting change, the authors stated.

"AHA has an advocacy committee that has set some strategic goals that we want policy makers to consider," Sacco said.

These include more physical activity in the schools and programs specifically targeted to preventing childhood obesity (such as Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" initiative).

Changes in food labeling, such as those in place in New York City and other areas, help make consumers more aware of what they're putting in their bodies and therefore could also help, Sacco said.

Many cities are already mandating limits on trans-fats.

"Calorie labeling or quantity labeling is important for food items and menu labeling," Sacco said.

And more preventive services need to be covered under the Affordable Health Care Act, he added.
