Healthy Living Program addresses heart disease By Mary P Selk, Payne Co. Extension Home Economist Oklahoma has the second highest death rate due to coronary heart disease and the thirteenth highest death rate due to stroke in the nation. Since the five leading causes of death, including these two, are associated with diet, the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Ser- vice designed the Healthy Living Program to address these prob- lems. The Healthy Living Program is eight weekly 1 1/2 hour ses- sions on healthful eating based on the Food Guide Pyramid, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and the Nutrition Facts labels. Each session includes in-depth information about one of the food groups, a food preparation demonstration, tasting, and a fitness segment, except for the second session, which is a grocery store tour reading labels and comparing products. It was written by OCES Nutrition Education specialists who are registered dietitians with assistance from county extension personnel. It is designed to help participants: learn about nutrition; use the Nutrition Facts foods labels; choose healthful foods; modify recipes for less fat, sugar and salt; prepare healthful meals; and, learn about the importance of exercise and fitness. It has been offered in Payne County during 1996 three times in Stillwater and Cushing to a total of 28 participants. It is being of- fered statewide by the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, and evaluation data in 16 counties from 183 individuals was to- taled in the spring of 1996. Evaluation was by pre-post 24 hour recall of food eaten, and a food habits questionnaire, as well as blood work with a 12-hour fast preceding the blood work and blood pressure taken for comparison. In terms of the physical and blood measures a significant decrease in fasting total cholesterol was found. An average of 218 mg/dl was reduced to an average of 206 mg/dl, which approaches the recom- mended 200 mg/dl. Seventy-one percent of the participants had a decrease in LDL-cholesterol. There was no significant change in HDL-cholesterol, however, the average initial HDL was within the normal range. This translates into a 16.5% decrease in coronary heart disease risk, according to the American Heart Association. Statewide the reduced risk of coronary heart disease among the participants rep- resents a savings of a quarter of a million dollars in health care costs. There was a significant decrease in body mass index, a measure of body fatness. Sixty-six percent of the participants decreased their body weight an average of 4 pounds, although loss of body weight was not a goal of the program. This weight loss is healthy, however, since it is recommended that healthy losses be only 1/2-1 pound per week, and this was measured in an eight-week period. Sixty percent of the participants had a decrease in fasting glucose and in fasting triglycerides. There was an overall significant de- crease in fasting glucose from an average considered high. Fii y- two percent had a decrease in diastolic blood pressure. In terms of how the participants were eating, there was a signifi- i i , T i {! !!il I i i (il !i cant decrease in the number of servings from fats and sweets in the 183 participants' eating. Forty-nine percent decreased their num- ber of servings from fats and sweets. They also reported an increase, although not significant, in the average number of servings from the breads, cereals, rice and pasta group, with 51% of the partici- pants increasing their number of daily servings. There were no sig- , nificant changes in other eating habits, but most were already close to the recommended levels. Overall, all components measured represented improvements in health status of the participants that also contributes to decreased risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. The Payne County OSU Cooperative Extension Center is in the process of scheduling this eight week program for February and March. If you are interested, please call 747-8320 and give us your name, address, and preferred time for the course. Cost is $20.00 which includes the eight week course, all the teaching materials, and a notebook of information for the participant to keep, "Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service offers its programs to all eli- gible persons regardless of race, color, ,national origin, sex, religion, age or disability, and is an equal opportunity employer."
