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.
