What to Eat According to the OmniHeart Study

A day’s worth of food

In the OmniHeart study, two diets—one higher in unsaturated fat and one higher in protein—cut heart disease risk the most. Here’s a day’s worth of food in a hybrid of the two diets. It has roughly 2,000 calories (which may look skimpy if you typically eat more). The four servings of grains may also seem skimpy (one serving is just ½ cup of rice or pasta or 1 thin slice of bread). Grains are limited because most of OmniHeart’s carbs come from fruits, vegetables, and beans.
