Mediterranean Diet and Recipes – the delicious and foolproof plan to prevent a 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.Prevention is better than cure!
Help is on the way from Dr. Janet Brill! Follow the straightforward, eight-point program in "Prevent a Second Heart Attack" 8 Foods, 8 Weeks to Reverse Heart Disease Book and reduce your risk of a second heart attack by up to 70 percent.
