ANCHOR LEAD: The London 2012 Olympic Games are fast-approaching and Brian Osuch has more with an Olympic gold medalist hoping to inspire you to have the "heart" to improve your everyday health. (:60)
SCRIPT: Newsbreak, I'm Brian Osuch. Four-time gold medalist Janet Evans, who dove back into the pool after a fifteen year hiatus, qualified for the upcoming 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Swimming in June. As the days count down, Janet is training hard and taking care of her body.
CUT: (Evans) I feel ready. I train hard, but the best thing I ever did was stay in shape during my years away from the pool. Because of my family history of heart disease, I know it's important to always be proactive about my health.
SCRIPT: According to the Women's Heart Foundation, eight million women in the U.S. are living with heart disease, and 35,000 are under the age of 65.
CUT: (Evans) I'm partnering with Metamucil, a leading fiber supplement, to help educate Americans about the small steps they can take to improve their health. Exercise, eat right and get enough fiber in your diet with Metamucil to help lower cholesterol.
SCRIPT: Metamucil contains psyllium fiber, proven to help lower cholesterol by forming a thick gel that helps remove some cholesterol, bile acids and waste*. For more on Janet and her tips visit Facebook-dot-com-slash-Metamucil. That's Newsbreak from Metamucil.
