Are you wanting to lower your risk of heart attack or stroke?
Cardiovascular health is affected by high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and a high A1C, and the fiber in plants actually lowers all 3!

That is what the plate method can help you achieve because the biggest emphasis is on the veggie portion.
