Healthy diet counseling Cooking –Avoid pre-cooked food, fast food, salted meals, manufactured sweets and cakes. –Roast, boil or grill food instead of frying –Avoid cooking with a lot of salt. –Use olive oil 13
Prescribing physical activity F - frequency (how many days per week) I - intensity (mild, moderate, intense) T - time (quantity of physical activity/day) T - type of activity (aerobic, anaerobic, for strength, stretching…) P - progression 18 EUROPREV Guide on Promoting Health through Physical Activity A Guide to Physical Activity Counselling in Daily Practice, 2007
Prescribing physical activity F- Frequency –It is advisable that the patients are active every day, no matter what type of activity they choose. –Physical activity gives beneficial effects when done regularly, –the minimum being 30 minutes for 3-5 days per week 19
Prescribing physical activity I – Intensity –Mild: strolling, walking slowly, doing moderate housekeeping, The heart rate (pulse) in mild exercise is less than 50% of the maximal pulse –Moderate: walking briskly, mowing the lawn... heart rate is 50-70% of the maximal pulse. –Intensive: jogging, engaging in heavy yard work... heart rate is more than 70% of the maximal pulse. 20
Prescribing physical activity Intensity assessment –One can count his/her heart beats or observe his/her reaction to exercise. 21
Prescribing physical activity T- Type –Anaerobic Without air ie energy exchange in living tissue independent of oxygen brief, strength-based activities such as sprinting or bodybuilding, weight lifting, sprinting, jumping... 24
Prescribing physical activity T- Type –Aerobic Aerobic meaning requiring air/oxygen Aerobic exercise is generally activity performed over a long period of time, typically 20 min. Or more Continuous activities that involve using the large muscles in the arsm or legs are called indurance or aeorbic exercise endurance activities such as marathon running or long- distance cycling, swimming, dancing, walking, running, climbing stairs... 25
Prescribing physical activity Start the exercise session with a gradual warm-up –During this time (about 5 to 10 minutes), one should slowly stretch muscles first, and then gradually increase the level of activity. –For example, one should begin walking slowly and then pick up the pace. When the exercise is finished, cool down for about 5 to 10 minutes, stretch the muscles and let the heart rate slow down gradually. 28
Exercise advice and tips 1.Start by talking with your doctor 2.Start out slowly 3.Choose the activity you like to do 4.Get a partner 5.Vary your routine 6.Choose a comfortable time of day 7.Don't get discouraged 31
Exercise advice and tips 8.Forget "no pain, no gain 9.Make exercise fun 10.Use appropriate clothes and footwear. 11.Drink plenty of fluids. 12.Warm up before starting 13.Do not forget to cool down 14.Self-monitoring –Record food intake daily –Check body weight 1 x/wk 32
Special Considerations Pregnancy – target HR < 140 –(60-70% MaxHR) –Duration 30-45 minutes Breastfeeding – reports of failure of milk production in strenuously exercising women
ASCVD Risk categories for exercise Class A Individuals who are apparently healthy and in whom there is no clinical evidence of increased cardiovascular risk with exercise. Class B Individuals with established CHD that is clinically stable. These individuals are at low risk of cardiovascular complications of vigorous exercise. Class C Individuals who are at moderate or high risk of cardiovascular complications during exercise. Examples of people who would be in this category are those who have had several heart attacks and those who have chest pain at a relatively low level of exercise. Patients with certain positive findings on an exercise test may also be in this group. Class D Individuals with unstable disease who should not participate in an exercise program.
ASCVD Class A – No prescreening recommended Class B – ECG monitored for the first 6 sessions Class C – Monitored exercise until 8-12 weeks. Class D – not able to exercise * Warm up and cool down periods should be monitored for B & C.
