Dear Dietitian – Changing Diet After a Heart Attack?

I had a heart attack about six weeks ago, which required bypass surgery. While in the hospital, I was bombarded by different professionals who instructed me to quit smoking, stop using salt, and change my diet to low fat/low cholesterol. I was very overwhelmed after major surgery that I only remember about half of what I was told.  I have managed to stop smoking but haven't gotten to the diet change yet. Can you help?

I have lost twenty pounds, and I'm very proud of my accomplishment. I know I have to develop healthy habits in order to keep the weight off.  My problem is I eat too much in the evenings after dinner. What can I do to change this bad habit? --Sherry

Dear Sherry,

Congratulations on your weight loss. You should definitely be proud of yourself!

Many people fall into the trap of night eating. In the evening our will power is down, and we are susceptible to temptation.
