REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY OF HOW TO PREVENT A SECOND HEART ATTACK BY J.BRILL PH.D (US ONLY)

 __________________________________________________________
CONTEST CLOSED
Prevent a Second Heart Attack: 8 Foods, 8 Weeks to Reverse Heart DiseaseEven if you do not have any cardiac issues you should read Prevent a Second Heart Attack: 8 Foods, 8 Weeks to Reverse Heart Disease so you do not become it's next victim.

According to the American Heart Association roughly 1.5 million people will have a heart attack this year and 38 % will die from it. Those are really upsetting numbers but scientific evidence shows that more than 80% of heart attacks can be prevented by lifestyle changes in both men and women. This is where the book comes in. The author provides guidelines that can help prevent your first heart attack and others after. The book provides a simple and easy to follow lifestyle plan (diet and exercise) to help heart attack survivors to live longer. 

General Lifestyle Advice: (We could all use a little advice in our lives)
  1. Eat a heart- healthy diet. ( Explained fully in the book)
  2. Reduce your stree in your life.
  3. Become physically Active. (remotes do not count)
  4. Don't smoke.
  5. Achieve and maintain a healthy weight. 
  6. Take your medications if prescribed.
I have always known that fish, nuts, vegetables and red wine has always been good for you but the book explains how they help the body reverse heart disease. There are great recipes and two weeks of meals plans to assist you in implementing the program. The author has written an excellent article about the importance of walnuts in your diet. You can read it here

While reading the book you will learn- 

  1. Why the Mediterranean diet is one of the best diets to follow.
  2. What is LDL AND HDL and how it affects our bodies.
  3. How "Good Carbs" such as oatmeal, popcorn and whole grains reduce our bad cholesterol (LDL), prevent high blood pressure and control your weight.
  4. Why fish is important for hearth health.
  5. Why having a glass of red wine with dinner is good for your heart.
  6. How exercise helps to increase your good cholesterol (HDL).
  7. How Dark chocolate helps protect our heart ( 1oz, 70% cocoa)

    My Thoughts-


    The books was fantastic, easy to read, informative and complete. As a Registered Nurse, I am familiar with the topics discussed in the book but in reading the book, I learned so much more about heart health. All of the information discussed was presented in a way that was concise and easy to understand. I especially liked the chapter that discussed what the underlying cause of heart disease-Atherosclerosis and how it affects the arteries. When I was growing up, my family always ate food rich in butter and creams unaware of what we were doing to our bodies. Now my family watches our fat and sugar intake to prevent heart disease and diabetes. The book was well researched and the information was up to date. I recommend the book to everyone to help them protect their heart. Would you like to win a copy of this great book?

    Thanks to the author, I am able to giveaway 1 copy of the book.

    8. I would love to read this book. I was "lucky" and had an emergency heart cath and repairs before I actually had a heart attack. So, no heart damage. But, I am really careful and any extra info would be helpful.
