Remember it is not only the quantity of fat but also the type of fat you consume that has an important bearing on your cardiovascular health.  Chose oils low in “bad” saturated fats and high in “good” unsaturated fats; such as CanOlive with its unique formulation.
Diet & Exercise

It is recommended that individuals should choose low calorie, nutrient rich foods that are low in saturated fats and dietary cholesterol. Food containing refined carbohydrates, added sugar and with high amounts of salt are to be avoided. Here is a quick guide to help you make healthy choices:

Chose lean meats and skinless poultry and have fish (especially oily fish) at least twice a week. Substitute normal dairy products with low fat dairy products wherever possible. Remember to include adequate amounts of fiber in your diet. This can be done by choosing whole grains, fruits, and vegetables to eat on a daily basis; keeping in mind that raw fruits and vegetables contain more fiber. Such foods are also low calorie and nutrient rich.


It is important to do regular physical activity as part of a healthy life style. At least 30 minutes of exercise (not necessarily in one go) on a daily basis or majority of the days is recommended to help maintain optimal weight and achieve cardiovascular fitness. While rigorous activities like running, cycling, swimming etc. are very beneficial, even moderate activities such as walking, gardening, housework etc. have a positive health impact. Proper, regular exercise is believed to help increase HDL (good cholesterol) levels, control weight and high blood pressure, condition the lungs and raise heart efficiency levels.
