After losing her father to his second heart attack and fearing that her husband Sam would suffer the same fate after his first, Dr. Janet Bond Brill was inspired to write PREVENT A SECOND HEART ATTACK: 8 FOODS, 8 WEEKS TO REVERSE HEART DISEASE (A Three Rivers Press Paperback Original, $15.00, February 1, 2011) to teach Sam and the 13 million other American heart attack survivors how to live long, happy, and healthy lives – and to teach them how to prevent that second lethal attack and even reverse the actual disease process.
Janet Bond Brill, Ph.D., R.D., LDN, a leading diet, nutrition and fitness expert, offers a successful, straightforward, eight-point program in PREVENT A SECOND HEART ATTACK. Her plan can reduce the risk of a second heart attack by up to 70 percent. Inspired by the heart-healthy, time-proven Mediterranean diet, Brill’s plan is simple: 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. Sample recipes featured in the book include:
Oatmeal, Walnut, and Flaxseed Pancakes
Shrimp with Artichoke-Garlic Sauce
Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts
Backed by cutting-edge research, Dr. Brill explains why each food is so important to cardiovascular wellness, and gives creative tips on how to get a daily dose of each one. Packed with every tool someone needs — including daily checklists, nutrition information, a complete two-week eating plan, and dozens of mouth-watering recipes to suit every meal, taste, and budget — the delicious and foolproof 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 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.
