The meetings will follow the order: Investigation, Contextualization, Awareness and Strengthening the nutritional concepts, according to the didactics of educator Paulo Freire.
Patients were hospitalized to realize elective coronary angioplasty in a especialized hospital in cardiovascular disease.
All data were obtained by a trained nutritionist.
