8 foods, 8 weeks to reverse heart disease
(Three Rivers Press, Feb 2011)

The delicious and foolproof plan to prevent a second heart attack – and actually reverse your heart disease.

Each year, roughly 1.5 million Americans have a heart attack – and the majority of them survive. But research shows that just one year after their diagnosis, the vast majority of these heart attack survivors fail to adhere to the dietary changes that could prevent a second heart attack.

Why? Despite being highly motivated to change, they are confused by the vast amount of information available, and overwhelmed and discouraged by the idea of a punishing, austere diet plan that banishes their favorite foods forever.

Today's Nutrition Tip
Coffee...the original Powerade
h, that morning cup of Joe... Americans just can't seem to get enough of the most popular behavior-altering drug in this country, caffeine. Is it smart to down a cup or two of coffee before you work out or is it better to refrain until after you get your exercise in? Caffeine is the most widely used ergogenic aid (a substance that can purportedly enhance sports performance) and has been scientifically proven to be a highly effective sports aid. Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that can help you perform better because it acts to increase alertness as well as lower your perception of effort during exercise-so you can exercise harder and it won't feel as difficult. The science has shown that caffeine is most valuable for endurance-type athletes involved in sports such as cycling and long-distance running. Caffeine has been shown to increase the amount of fat floating in the bloodstream of endurance athletes, which would theoretically improve endurance performance by helping to spare muscle glycogen. When muscle glycogen runs low, endurance athletes need to slow their pace, so an ergogenic aid that enables athletes to "spare" the glycogen in favor of using the fat for fuel would be highly beneficial and potentially delay fatigue. If you do decide to drink a cup of coffee before exercising, there are a few caveats. Caffeine is a diuretic, so if you choose to consume it before exercising in a hot, humid environment, be sure to drink extra fluids to compensate. Furthermore, many people are caffeine sensitive and can have negative side effects from consuming caffeine, such as nervousness, upset stomach and a rapid heart rate. If you are caffeine sensitive, I would suggest that you abstain.
