Life's Simple 7: Seven Steps to a Healthier Heart

Taken from the American Heart Association:


No matter where you are in life, it's never too late to make better health choices.  All you need is a goal, a plan and the desire to live better.


You can achieve excellent cardiovascular health by keeping seven factors in check.  They're known as Life's Simple 7:

  • Don't smoke cigarettes or use other tobacco products.
  • Keep a healthy body weight (body mass index less than 25 kg/m.  To find your body mass index, multiply your weight in pounds by 703 and divide by your height in inches.  Then divide again by your height in inches).
  • Get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity (or a combination) each week.
  • Eat a healthy diet consistent with current recommendations from the American Heart Association.
  • Keep total cholesterol less than 200 mg/dL.
  • Keep blood pressure below 120/80 mm Hg.
  • Keep fasting blood glucose less that 100 mg/dL.
