Overview

Reverse Your Heart Disease in Just Eight Weeks by Harnessing the Power of the Mediterranean Diet

If you’re one of the 13 million Americans who have survived a heart attack or been diagnosed with heart disease, Dr. Janet Bond Brill offers a delicious and foolproof plan that can lower your risk of a second heart attack by up to 70 percent.  Inspired by the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet, the Prevent a Second Heart Attack Plan is based on satisfaction, rather than deprivation.   

Backed by cutting edge research, Dr. Brill explains:

   • Why the Mediterranean diet is the gold standard of heart-healthy eating
   • How “good carbs” such as oatmeal and popcorn lower bad cholesterol, prevent high blood pressure, and control your weight
   • The science behind eating fish for heart health
   • Why having a glass of red wine with dinner is great for your heart—and which wines are the best choices
   • The easiest, most delicious daily habit that will cut your heart attack risk
Packed with every tool you need to eat your way to better heart health--including daily checklists, a complete two-week eating plan, and dozens of mouthwatering recipes to suit every meal, taste, and budget—Prevent a Second Heart Attack provides you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to live long and enjoy the good life, the heart healthy way.
 
JANET BOND BRILL, Ph.D., R.D., LDN, is a diet, nutrition, and fitness expert who has appeared on national television.  She is the author of Cholesterol Down: 10 Simple Steps to Lower Your Cholesterol In 4 Weeks Without Prescription Drugs, and specializes in cardiovascular disease prevention.  Dr. Brill lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and three children.

    A Delicious, Easy and Cost-Effective Way to Improve Your Health!

    This book is packed full of useful information. Dr. Brill carefully explains the "How" and the "Why" the vessel damage occurs. More importantly, she thoroughly explains what you can do to prevent another cardiovascular episode. The book is full of tips for adopting a healthier diet. She includes a sample meal plan and over 50 delicious recipes to help you eat the Mediterranean way ("Dr. Janet's Roasted Red Pepper Hummus" is superb and a new family favorite of ours!). The Mediterranean-style eating plan that Dr. Brill describes is a delicious, easy and cost-effective way to improve your health and prevent a second heart attack. As a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator working in the areas of public health and long-term care, I see the end results of poor dietary habits on a daily basis. This book will not only be useful to those who have had a heart attack, but to anyone who wants to adopt a healthier way of eating. It will be especially useful for anyone with Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes. Research has shown that people with Diabetes, even Pre-Diabetes, are much more likely to have a cardiac episode. In fact, the risk for having a second heart attack is twice as likely in someone who has diabetes. I am highly recommend this book to my clients, especially those who are living with Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes This is not a "diet" plan. It is a delicious lifestyle that can easily be adopted and followed for life! Angela Ellis Lamberson, MS, RD, LDN, CDE Nutrition Pair, LLC

    Highly Recommended- A MUST Read!

    The material in the book is well researched and presented in an easy to read format. As a fellow dietitian, I will definitely be recommending this book to my clients. Dr. Janet has provided valuable and simple tools that can be applied to improve our quality of life. This book is not just for someone with a risk for heart disease. The book includes key foods, exercise tips, 14 day meal plan and recipes. It is a wonderful resource towards a heart healthy lifestyle! NutritionEducator

    Eight delicious foods to better heart health!

    Dr. Janet Bond Brill's "Prevent a Second Heart Attack" is a MUST READ for anyone who wants to reverse, or even prevent, heart disease. She recommends eight foods (plus a yummy bonus!) to prevent the risk of a second heart attack or stroke. Dr. Janet's message is clear: Eating healthfully can be delicious and fun. Inspired by the Mediterranean/Greek diet, her recommended foods guarantee that you won't go hungry or feel deprived. She writes about atherosclerosis and nutrition so effortlessly that you don't get bogged down in the science. Yet, she supports every claim she makes with ample and solid research. She breaks the easy-to-read book down into the following three sections: 1. How you got heart disease in the first place: a detailed background on heart disease 2. Reversing heart disease with EIGHT foods and exercise: a step-by-step guide on why you should eat these specific foods and how to fit them into your diet 3. The Prevent a Second Heart Attack plan in action: 14-day meal plan and recipes This book is chock full of pertinent information you NEED to know to prevent a second cardiovascular event. When reading this book, it is evident that preventing heart disease-and the occurrence of a second heart attack-with diet is Dr. Janet's true passion. And, she shares that passion with great anecdotes, solid research, a tasty meal plan and mouth-watering recipes for delicious and nourishing foods. As a fellow registered dietitian, I will be recommending "Prevent a Second Heart Attack" to my clients with heart disease. I'll also be adding some of her recipes to my menu repertoire.
