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.

Getting rid of the underarm "jiggle" for summer
The best thing you can do to firm up those arms and get rid of that extra underarm "jiggle" for swimsuit season is to get yourself right over to the nearest gym and build up your program of building and toning strength-training exercises. For the arms, you will need to work on the muscles in the back of your arms (those out-of-shape triceps) and the muscles in the front (the "Popeye" muscles, or biceps). You can tone those-muscle groups using gym equipment. Some great exercises that target the triceps are triceps pushdowns, bench dips, triceps kickbacks and plain old push-ups. Exercises that target the biceps generally involve "curls," using dumbbells of barbells... That said, keep in mind that there are two separate types of tissue: fat and muscle. The best way to keep those arms looking lean and shapely is to take a two-pronged approach: lose the fat and put on and tone up the muscle. Losing body fat involves combining regular calorie-burning aerobic exercise (such as walking or running) with a calorie-controlled diet. Adding and toning muscles requires a regular program of strength-training exercises. Start putting it all together now, and before you know it you'll be ready for summer looking healthy and fit!
