9780060084486: The Healthy Heart Miracle: Your Roadmap to Lifelong Health

The author of the successful 20/30 Fat & Fibre Diet Plan shares his program, achieving significant improvements in blood pressure and cholesterol in as little as 8 weeks.

According to the latest research, a diet rich in high–fibre plants such as oats, barley and nuts can reduce cholesterol levels by nearly 30 per cent – as much as a statin drug – in as little as 4 weeks. That's just part of the program in The Healthy Heart Miracle.

For those seeking to dramatically reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and diabetes, this simple 8–week program will work with or without cholesterol or blood pressure drugs. For people with heart disease, it provides a roadmap for the lifestyle changes recommended by every cardiologist.

Review:

In the midst of a carb-cutting craze, Dr. Gabe Mirkin reminds us that not all carbohydrates are alike. Drawing on a post-Atkins approach, Dr. Mirkin and coauthor Diana Mirkin, approach eating and fitness in terms of a healthy hearts rather than a smaller jean size. The centerpiece of their approach is exercise paired with "ASH,"a meatless and whole grain diet designed to reduce chances of suffering from heart attack, diabetes and stroke. The "miracle" of the title refers to how quickly and dramatically this diet can lower blood pressure and "bad" cholesterol counts. Using an eight-week workbook format, the authors offer clear explanations of healthy heart concepts including cholesterol, blood sugar body fat and fiber. They offer accessible assessment tools (body mass index, the apple vs. pear body shape and the "pinch test"). Writing with a clear and engaging style, the Mirkins point readers toward the prevention of diseases such as diabetes, hardened arteries and dementia. As author of the bestselling Sports Medicine Book, Dr. Mirkin emphasizes fitness as much as food. The organization of the book into eight-week modules can be confusing. But the specific ideas including recipes, food lists and fitness options are practical and persuasive. --Barbara Mackoff
