Mediterranean Diet Study Results Stun World
Philadelphia, PA, February 26, 2013

New and powerful research just published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine has shown that following the Mediterranean diet cuts rates of heart attack, strokes and death from heart disease by about 30%. Renowned cardiovascular disease prevention expert and author, Dr. Janet Brill, wrote the book on how to follow a Mediterranean diet.

Prevent a Second Heart Attack, Dr. Brill's book provides a step-by-step guide to following the Mediterranean diet – a simple, easy-to-follow lifestyle plan designed to help people live the optimal heart health diet – now scientifically proven to prevent, treat and even reverse heart disease. The new study has shown that following the Mediterranean diet cuts rates of heart attack, strokes and death from heart disease by about 30%. The diet can also reduce the risk of a second heart attack by up to 70 percent.

Dr. Brill's book helps people follow the diet. Inspired by the heart-healthy, time-proven Mediterranean diet, Brill’s plan is simple: incorporate eight key food groups – like olive oil, oatmeal, leafy greens, and even red wine and dark chocolate – into your daily diet, and get moderate exercise each day. Sample recipes featured in the book include:

•  Oatmeal, Walnut, and Flaxseed Pancakes
•  Whole-Grain Pizza with Arugula, Eggplant, and Caramelized Onion
•  Shallow-Poached Salmon with Fennel and Saffron
•  Shrimp with Artichoke-Garlic Sauce
•  Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts

Backed by cutting-edge research, Dr. Brill explains why each food is so important to cardiovascular wellness, and gives creative tips on how to get a daily dose of each one. Packed with every tool someone needs – including daily checklists, nutrition information, a complete two-week eating plan, and dozens of mouth-watering recipes to suit every meal, taste, and budget – the delicious and foolproof program ensures that those interested in preventing a heart attack as well as heart disease survivors and their loved ones will be satisfied, rather than deprived, as they eat their way to better heart health.

Today's Nutrition Tip
Post-baby shape-up
One of the best ways to get back in shape after having a baby is to breast-feed. The physiological process of breast-feeding requires that a woman's metabolic rate go into overtime as her body strives to produce milk to nurture her growing infant. This process requires an exorbitant amount of calories to sustain. If you combine breast-feeding with both a nutrient-dense, calorie-controlled diet (with enough calories to support lactation) and regular aerobic exercise (like taking the baby for long walks), you will surely be on the right track for getting back into shape and getting back your pre-pregnancy body. If a woman decides not to breast-feed, she can still take a healthy approach to getting back into shape following the birth of her new baby. The extra fat that Mother Nature adds to a woman's body to support her pregnancy can be taken off following the same general principles for all types of healthy weight loss: eat a healthy, balanced, calorie-controlled diet combined with regular exercise, and aim for a weight loss of no more than 1 to 2 pounds per week. There are registered dietitians who specialize in pregnancy, and I would highly recommend you consult with one to get on the right path.
