Abundance of Resources

Hutchinson Regional Medical Center provides an abundance of resources available not only to employees but also to the public.

The education department is the center to many of the resources provided by Hutchinson Regional Medical Center. Education helps sponsor and inform the public about upcoming events and additional information or questions the public may have about an event.

Eating Heart-Healthy

It can be hard to sort through everything you need to know when eating heart-healthy. Here are some of the things you should look for when choosing a recipe and purchasing ingredients:

 

 

Fats, Sodium & Whole Grains


Monounsaturated Fats: Liquid at room temperature, these plant-based fats can lower cholesterol when used in place of saturated fat in the diet.

Sources: olive oil, avocados and nuts.

Fad Diets

With so many fad diets out there it's easy to get wrapped up in the latest trend. Listen to your body instead of following fad diet trends. Find the foods that allow you as an individual to thrive and throw all the fad diets out the window where they belong.

There is no single diet that works for everyone. Diets are not meant to be a one-size-fits-all. Common sense is perhaps the best dieting tool you'll ever have.
