Overview

The man who talked the nation into eating oat bran for breakfast in the '80s now shows readers how to once again enjoy bacon and eggs... and never have the fat and cholesterol bother them a bit. At the same time, the author of the phenomenal bestseller, The 8-Week Cholesterol Cure, cuts through all the confusion on diet and the heart. You and your heart are going to love this book! Two revolutionary products, both completely natural and harmless, effectively block the absorption of fat and cholesterol, respectively. This allows us to enjoy the foods we thought were forbidden forever. New food products allow us to return to the "comfort" foods we've missed for years. Kowalski invites us into his "Magic Kitchen" to share his recipes for meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy, creamy chicken a la king, and juicy rare beef steaks with fat as low as fish. Missing links in the diet-heart-cholesterol puzzle have been filled in, and Kowalski provides the solutions to the newly discovered risk factors. Kowalski cuts through the public confusion, providing definitive answers to the questions we all have on our minds: red wine? garlic? salt? sugar? iron? "good" cholesterol? accurate testing? antioxidants? exercise? stress? And every word is backed up by the world's top scientific and medical authorities.

"...sheds light on two natural products believed to block the body's absorption of fat and cholesterol."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The author of the The 8-Week Cholesterol Cure, which espoused the wonders of oat bran, now offers breezy assurance that one can eat steak, eggs, and other cholesterol- and fat-laden goodies and still have a healthy lipid profile. The trick he says, is to block the absorption of fat with a weight-loss product called SeQuester (a formulation of bovine bile and soluble and insoluble fibers that binds fat to prevent its passing into the bloodstream) and the absorption of cholesterol with plant steroids. Kowalski also waxes enthusiastic about the cholesterol-lowering benefits of antioxidants, soluble fiber and niacin. Recommending a judicious diet and offering useful low-fat shopping and cooking advice, Kowalski rates popular weight-loss programs according to healthfulness and efficacy, offers a collection of his own low-in-fat recipes and frequently promotes his publication, the "Diet-Heart Newsletter." Weight is managed by controlling ingestion and expenditure of calories, he reiterates, yet readers are likely to focus on his more appealing suggestion that you can eat your cake and have it too.
