Overview

Arthur Agatston, MD, a leading cardiologist and the author of the international bestseller The South Beach Diet presents the truth about cardiac care in this country and offers his call to action for preventing heart attacks and strokes. Heart disease is the number-one killer of men and women in this country. This year alone 865,000 people will have a new or recurrent heart attack and another 600,000 will have a stroke. The shocking fact is that the majority of heart attacks and strokes can be prevented with the medical knowledge we already possess. Yet this isn't happening. Why? Because too many doctors and hospitals don't support aggressive prevention, relying instead on invasive procedures such as angioplasties and bypasses for a significant portion of their income. In his most personal and passionate book yet, Dr. Arthur Agatston, who has helped millions of people find a healthy lifestyle, champions a revolution in heart disease prevention that will enable people to actually save their own lives. Drawing upon more than 30 years as a practicing cardiologist, he details the key elements of his four-part South Beach Heart Program:
• heart-healthy eating, following the principles of The South Beach Diet
• heart-healthy functional fitness, including cardio and core exercises
• state-of-the-art advanced blood testing and heart imaging
• heart-protective medications, as necessary Dr. Agatston's patients have thrived as a result of this aggressive prevention strategy. Now, with expert advice from a doctor they have learned to trust, the American public can join his prevention revolution and take the necessary steps to protect their hearts and live longer and healthier lives.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Agatston (medicine, Univ. of Miami; The South Beach Diet) adds yet another book to his successful series. A cardiologist for more than 30 years, Agatston focuses his expertise on what he knows best: maintaining a healthy heart. He espouses four preventive techniques: diet, exercise, diagnostic tests, and medications. The first half of the book includes Agatston's reasoning for utilizing these preventive measures, documented studies and patient testimonials, a gender-specific questionnaire, and information on when invasive surgeries such as angiograms and angioplasties might be necessary. The second part is devoted to Agatston's four-step plan, with a basic overview and sample meal plans from the South Beach Diet, a detailed workout regimen of walking and Pilates-based exercises, and discussions of which medical tests are most important in monitoring one's heart and which prescription and over-the-counter medications (and supplements) are most beneficial and why. Those previously reluctant to take medications won't necessarily be persuaded by Agatston's confidence, and the diet chapter is too slight for most to grasp—but ultimately, Agatston's popularity makes this a necessary purchase for public libraries.

    Comprehensive.

    From the author/cardiologist of the popular 'South Beach Diet' comes 'The South Beach Heart Program' -a book designed to get and keep your heart in shape via a 4 step plan. Step one is getting on a good diet. It should come to no surprise that the diet plan recommended is the heart healthy South Beach Diet. Step two is the exercise portion and the book recommends walking and strengthening exercises, particularly your core. The rationale here is that you can't keep your heart strong and exercise if your other muscles are weak. Step three is about getting the right tests. In other words, the earlier you get the tests, the better your chances are of preventing a heart attack or stroke. And finally, step four is getting the right medications one might need. Good for anyone concerned about being heart healthy, I recommend this book for due to its comprehensive discussion of its subject in plain language.

    I found it very informative. I haven't finished the book yet; I am beginning to read the sections reference the suggested exercises. Looking forward to asking my cardiologist his thoughts on this book.
