Youve probably heard that you need to keep your cholesterol under control. But do you get confused about whats good to eat and whats not? Do you wonder about whether youre active enough and whether youre at the right weight?
The TLC Program, short for Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes, could clear up some of your questions.
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute made it for people who want to control their cholesterol. Even if you take medications for it, you may want to consider the possible benefits of this program.
It has three parts: diet, exercise, and weight control. The goal: Reduce your risk of heart disease. This is not a fad diet. Its considered a balanced plan, and the idea is to change your habits for the long run.
