An Answer to Prayer

This book was an answer to prayer for me. I think it is just excellent and very understandable for the average person. However, I suggest you read it and reread it several times before trying the program. There are many ideas in the book that are hard to remember the first time through. If you don't fully understand it, you might make some mistakes and then tend to think it doesn't work. For instance, I missed the part about not using tuna in broth and it really set off cravings. I was tempted to blame the diet. When I discontinued the tuna, it was the difference of day and night. It is a book where you find some new tidbit every time you reread it. It is working well for me and I have lost 12 pounds in two weeks. I am looking to find or form a support group here in town for more ideas and recipies.

Very helpful for my overweight and Heart-related problems

Has helped me lose almost 50 pounds with still being able to eat almost all of my favorite foods. Authors are very open and honest about all diet-related subjects and "tell it like it is". This program does work in weight loss, and I look forward to it's long term benefits for the heart.

Definitely not just a re-hash of their earlier books

This book is definitely not just a re-hash of their earlier books. Although it follows most of what they previously wrote, it contains MAJOR improvements and refinements over their old program. Some that I found particularly intereststing are as follows:1) Artificial sweeteners are now identified as being culprits in raising blood insulin levels, which relate directly to weight gain and heart risk factors. 2) Sulfates contained in foods are similarly identified for the first time by the authors. 3) Many supplements are identified and assessed with extensive bibliographies as they relate to weight control and heart disease. 4) This book is co-authored by a Cardiologist for the first time, and he incorporates many heart health-related issues and suggestions to form a major difference in the Heller's original book. This newest book by the Hellers takes the ball and runs way beyond their earlier publications. There have been many developments since 1993 when they published their original book, and they identify and extensively discuss these updates. I really did not find this to be a rehash at all, but an update.

Finally, a way of life I can live with--no more dieting!

For years I've been looking for the perfect diet--a diet that would allow me to lose weight and be healthy. I tried a number of diets only to find myself falling off the wagon here and there and then finally giving up. After reading this book (and I've read it at least twice by now) I am convinced that this is the perfect way of life for me. The Hellers and Mr. Vagnini have done their homework and provided us with a foolproof means of getting the weight off and preventing heart disease. I recommend it for everyone but especially for women who like me (in their early 50s) are entering those years when we are most prone to heart disease and diabetes. IT'S A MUST READ!!

This Book Turned My Life Around In Two Weeks!

There is nothing worse than being a fat, out-of-condition cardiologist! You know your patients are wondering how you can be giving advice when you look like you're going to have a heart attack yourself any minute.Until I found this book I had all but given up.My father and his two brothers suffered heart attacks by age 55. My mother's family had diabetes. I felt as if I was headed straight for a heart attack.My blood fat levels, blood pressure, blood sugar levels and weight were getting worse no matter I tried. I had seen this time and time again in my patients but, to tell the truth, low-fat diets just didn't work for me. I couldn't stay on them and they seemed to make my blood fat levels worse.In the two weeks after finding this book my life has turned around. My cravings are gone - gone - gone. My blood pressure, triglycerides, and blood sugar levels are normal! I'm losing weight even though I have a Reward Meal of my dreams every night.I knew this program made sense when I read it. It was built on good science and it was the first program I felt I could believe in. But living it is even better than I could have hoped for.I started giving copies of this book to my patients. The immediate results appear to be just a great for them. I just want everyone to know that this program not only makes good sense and is easy to follow but that it works, too!
