As one who is always in pursuit of “skinnier” and “healthier,” I snatched up this title for information and inspiration. The author was a vascular surgeon for more than thirty years. During this time, he gathered information and made observations vital to the health of everyone.
He advises three areas essential for good health: 1. Losing and maintaining an ideal weight, 2. Eating low-fat, zero-cholesterol foods, 3. Exercising.
So many Americans suffer from, or even die of stroke or heart attack. Both are directly related to the health of the arteries. So often, doctors will prescribe a medication after a heart “episode,” but the root of the problem is still there. A lifestyle change has to be made! The three above steps will keep the arteries clean and smooth, and keep the heart pumping strong. The book is filled with stories from others who had heart problems. Some of them chose to change their eating and exercise habits. Some did not. So often, the quality of our health is left in our own hands. But as we see in this book, it takes commitment to eat healthy foods, and keep our bodies moving!
Great book, full of information and insight.
I was given a free copy of this book by the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
