In brief: Healthy Heart Plus

Healthy whole body; lots of fruits and veggies.
Whole grains, nuts, beans. Fish. Less animal products (dairy, eggs, fatty meat. Choose lean meat like chicken, turkey). Less highly processed food. Watch salt. Limit caffeine.

"EAT FOOD. NOT TOO MUCH. MOSTLY PLANTS." More on processed foods [from M. Pollan's "Eater's Manifesto:" [1] "Avoid food with ingredients you can't pronounce." [2] "Don’t eat anything your great-great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food."

In brief: Low salt low fat

A cardiac diet comprises a diet consistent to reduce risk factors associated with heart disease.
These may include a diet that is low in unhealthy fats/cholesterol, rich in fruits and veggies, rich in fiber and low sodium content.
