Research regarding treatment of cardiovascular diseases has revealed many approaches including drug therapy, as well as lifestyle changes. The latter being extremely challenging has led to the investigation of novel methods in order to maximize effectiveness of intervention programs. One such method is counselling through many different approaches such as face to face, web based or mobile counselling. The problem regarding lifestyle changes has always been the challenging goal to get patients to adhere to a new dietary pattern and healthier lifestyle habits and to maintain these changes for lifetime. Yet not many approaches regarding lifestyle changes have been successful. Counselling has been introduced to this effort much later than others, and since it is an ongoing investigation, it is to be assessed whether it is a promising method for cardiovascular disease treatment.
