About This Kit
In previous kits you learned about what to eat. Choose a variety of grains, fruits, and vegetables that are good sources of complex carbohydrates. Avoid foods high in fat. Your Heart Institute Prevention and Rehabilitation Centre (HIPRC) Food Diary lists specific “Foods to Choose” and “Foods to Decrease/Avoid” in each of the food groups.
Now it is time to focus on how much to eat. In this kit you will:
Step 1. Know what determines how much you need to eat
Step 2. Know the serving size for common foods
Step 3. Record servings of food in your Food Diary
