    Praise from professionals for the revised edition:

    The present revision is a major one. It applies the most current information on diet and cardiovascular health, and provides a method of dietary change that is both realistic and effective. . . . If we all abided by what Mr. Piscatella says, the health of our nation would skyrocket.

    William C. Roberts, M.D., Editor-in-Chief, The American Journal of Cardiology

    Don't Eat Your Heart Out Cookbook is the best, most focused approach I've seen for changing your diet and reducing heart disease. This is a terrific resource for heart patients and anyone else interested in good health.

    L. Kent Smith, Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation, Arizona Heart Institute

    If I could spend a day counseling each of my patients, I'd tell them what's written in Don't Eat Your Heart Out Cookbook. . . . It is an exceptional job of balancing information and technique, in language everyone can understand.

    Michael Davidson, M.D., Medical Director, Chicago Center for Clinical Research

  • About the Author:

    Author Joseph C. Piscatella has been a keen observer of American eating habits since 1977, when emergency open-heart surgery at the age of 32 forced him to recognize the intimate connection between dietary habits and overall health. His successful recovery and determination to make adjustment in his own lifestyle and diet inspired a new career as an active proponent of healthy lifestyle changes. As president of the Institute for Fitness and Health, Inc. in Tacoma, Washington, he lectures extensively to a variety of clients, including medical organizations, corporations and professional associations, and is a consultant on major wellness projects for Fortune 500 companies, the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force. Cited in Time for their practicality and effectiveness, his seminars deal with the management of lifestyle habits to increase health, longevity and productivity. Mr. Piscatella is the only non-medical member of the National Institute of Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Expert Panel, which develops clinical practice guidelines for physicians. He is also a member of the Association for Worksite Health Promotion, the American Association of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, and the National Wellness Association.
