A healthy diet is critical to maintaining heart health. Poor nutrition is one of the leading causes of heart disease - particularly with regard to the consumption of transfats and saturated fats and the dangers of being overweight or obese. For that reason, WindberCare Cardiac Rehabilitation includes consultations with a registered dietician who can help patients change both their appetite and attitude toward food.

The goal of cardiac rehab is not simply to help patients recover from heart-related medical procedures but to ensure that their hearts stay healthy over the long term. It is extremely important that patients continue to use the information and strategies they learn in the rehabilitation program long after they have completed it.
