Meet the Author

Author Joseph C. Piscatella has been a keen observer of American eating habits since 1977, when emergency open-heart surgery at the age of 32 forced him to recognize the intimate connection between dietary habits and overall health. His successful recovery and determination to make adjustment in his own lifestyle and diet inspired a new career as an active proponent of healthy lifestyle changes. As president of the Institute for Fitness and Health, Inc. in Tacoma, Washington, he lectures extensively to a variety of clients, including medical organizations, corporations and professional associations, and is a consultant on major wellness projects for Fortune 500 companies, the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force. Cited in Time for their practicality and effectiveness, his seminars deal with the management of lifestyle habits to increase health, longevity and productivity. Mr. Piscatella is the only non-medical member of the National Institute of Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Expert Panel, which develops clinical practice guidelines for physicians. He is also a member of the Association for Worksite Health Promotion, the American Association of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, and the National Wellness Association.

    Wonderful!!!

    Many years ago my doctor recommended this book. I didn't have heart problems but was trying to lose a lot of weight. By following the guidelines in this book and making its many wonderful recipes in the back of the book, I lost 79 pounds. What is great about this book is the recipes are full of flavor. You don¿t feel like you are giving up a thing to eat healthy. My personal favorite is the Chicken Cortez and the Mexican Flan. I would recommend this book to anyone, not just people with heart issues.
