Reverse Your Heart Disease in Just Eight Weeks by Harnessing the Power of the Mediterranean Diet

If you’re one of the 13 million Americans who have survived a heart attack or been diagnosed with heart disease, Dr. Janet Bond Brill offers a delicious and foolproof plan that can lower your risk of a second heart attack by up to 70 percent.  Inspired by the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet, the Prevent a Second Heart Attack Plan is based on satisfaction, rather than deprivation.   

Backed by cutting edge research, Dr. Brill explains:

   • Why the Mediterranean diet is the gold standard of heart-healthy eating
   • How “good carbs” such as oatmeal and popcorn lower bad cholesterol, prevent high blood pressure, and control your weight
   • The science behind eating fish for heart health
   • Why having a glass of red wine with dinner is great for your heart—and which wines are the best choices
   • The easiest, most delicious daily habit that will cut your heart attack risk
Packed with every tool you need to eat your way to better heart health--including daily checklists, a complete two-week eating plan, and dozens of mouthwatering recipes to suit every meal, taste, and budget—Prevent a Second Heart Attack provides you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to live long and enjoy the good life, the heart healthy way.
