Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
A delicious and foolproof plan to prevent a heart attack – and actually reverse your heart disease has come as a relief to not only heart attack survivors but also to those who would like to be heart healthy with reduced risk of having a heart attack.
By following the straightforward, eight-point program detailed in Dr Janet Brill’s book Prevent a Second Heart Attack, you can reduce your risk of a first heart attack or if you are a survivor, reduce your risk of a second heart attack by up to 70 percent.
Written by Dr Janet Brill, PhD, RD, LDN, CSSD, an expert in the field of health and cardiovascular disease prevention and lifestyle nutrition, the Prevent a Second Heart Attack book reveals a simple plan based on heart-healthy, time-proven Mediterranean diet - incorporate eight key food groups – like olive oil, oatmeal, leafy greens, and even red wine and dark chocolate – into your daily diet, and get moderate exercise each day.
Each year, roughly 1.5 million Americans have a heart attack – and the majority of them survive. But research shows that just one year after their diagnosis, the vast majority of these heart attack survivors fail to adhere to the dietary changes that could prevent a second heart attack.
Why? Despite being highly motivated to change, they are confused by the vast amount of information available and overwhelmed and discouraged by the idea of a punishing, austere diet plan that banishes their favorite foods forever.
The book is not just about preventing a second heart attack. It suggests an effective Mediterranean diet plan and delicious Mediterranean recipes that keeps your heart healthy and reduces your risk of developing heart disease.
Backed by cutting-edge research, Dr. Brill explains why each food is so important to your cardiovascular wellness, and gives you creative tips on how to get your daily dose. Packed with every tool you need – including daily checklists, a complete two-week eating plan, and dozens of mouth-watering recipes to suit every meal, taste, and budget – the program ensures that heart attack survivors and their loved ones will be satisfied, rather than deprived, as they eat their way to better heart health.
With the reassuring and accessible voice of a trusted health professional, "Prevent a Second Heart Attack Book" gives heart attack survivors the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to make simple – but life-changing-diet and lifestyle modifications to reverse their disease and live long, heart-healthy lives.
"This is an important book. Dr. Brill has managed to combine an enormous body of scientific literature which establishes the profound links between heart health and nutrition with a highly practical, motivational, and user-friendly approach. If every American followed the principles found in this book, we could substantially reduce the burden of heart disease in our country," said James M. Rippe, MD, Cardiologist, Professor of Biomedical Sciences, University of Central Florida and Founder and Director, Rippe Lifestyle Institute.
