My Healthy Plate Program produced a specific list of foods aimed at protecting the body of women

Survey of the Ministry of Health of São Paulo shows 34% increase in the number of women hospitalized for stroke in the state in the last four years in public hospitals.

In 2012 were 8570 admissions of females with the complication, against 6395 in 2008. The data show that last year, on average, seven women are treated infarcted per hour in hospitals Unified Health System (SUS) in São Paulo. Of this total, 66% are under 70.

A proper diet, combined with daily physical activity, can prevent the onset of cardiovascular problems such as stroke and myocardial infarction in women and men.

My Healthy Plate Program, a partnership of the Heart Institute (Incor), Hospital das Clinicas, FMUSP with LatinMed Publisher in Health, produced a specific list of foods aimed at protecting the body of women against cardiovascular disease.

Women are becoming more like men in the lifestyle, but you can change this through prevention, says Lara Natacci nutritionist My Healthy Plate.

The Healthy Plate My idea is to change, without sacrificing too many restrictions or diets, eating habits of the population, through guidance on how to eat healthy at every meal of the day, and thus maintain a healthy weight or even reduce it, thus avoiding, diseases related to poor diet.

A dish should contain healthy portions that include carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Thus, one should fill half the plate with vegetables (raw and cooked), varying quite the quality of vegetables, eating foods of different colors.

For the other half, place 1/4 of food rich in protein (chicken, fish, eggs, low-fat), which can be supplemented with legumes (beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils), and the other 1/4 with carbohydrate foods, preferably in their entirety, rich in fiber (rice, pasta, potatoes, cassava, manioc, flour).

Information on healthy meals can be obtained by application My Healthy Plate, available free for cell-type smartphone, and the site.
