Simple Steps To A Healthier Life is an online health and wellness program that can help you on your heart-healthy journey. The online health coaching program, called a Direction, provides you with support and tools to help you meet your goals.

Heart-Healthy Cholesterol (Direction)

Eating right and moving more are powerful ways to move the needle on hearthealthy cholesterol. The key is helping consumers turn good intentions into better habits. Heart-Healthy Cholesterol Journeys go beyond simply educating users to engaging them in new practices that change the way they live. Journeys in this focus area such as Good Fat, Bad Fat and Manage Your Cholesterol Meds pinpoint specific, high-impact habit areas.

Follow these Journeys and Heart-Healthy Cholesterol:

Knowing how much and which fats to eat can help you avoid heart disease and lose weight. Discover tasty, new healthy-fat foods, learn how much is enough and practice easy tricks for recognizing and replacing bad fats in your diet.

Does taking your cholesterol meds feel like a constant to-do? Take easy steps to simplify your regimen (and automate your refills and save money, too). You’ll be able to set it and forget it—and in the process, never miss a pill again.
