However, if you are still just learning the basics of keeping your heart healthy and happy, never fear! We have plenty in store for you by the time you finish with Lesson 4, you'll be rearing to go!

The basics

Each time we've mentioned diet and exercise regimens, we've followed a specific order your weight, physical activity, a diet low in sodium and minimizing alcoholic beverages. We're going to keep things simple and follow this same order as we explain things in more detail. This is not to say, however, that this order has anything to do with the importance of each element. Following a healthy lifestyle means following a balanced lifestyle that means that every aspect of your diet and exercise regimens is important. Just because you remain physically active, doesn't mean you can eat all of the salt-n-vinegar potato chips you want ESPECIALLY if you have hypertension. Of course, there are many smaller categories of lifestyle management, such as dietary supplements and alternative care approaches that we'll explore as well, so hold tight, and let's get learning!
