Overview

The revolutionary new program presented in this book can help everyone who follows it to have a healthy heart.

In THE 30-DAY HEART TUNE-UP Dr. Masley will first help you to determine your heart health. He will then take you step-by-step through a program to tune up your heart, energy, waistline, and sex life. Also included in the program, sixty delicious recipes to help jump start a heart-healthy diet.

Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer of Americans today, and while most doctors focus on lowering cholesterol and blood pressure they are overlooking the real culprit: growth of arterial plaque.

Cholesterol-reducing statins treat some signs of heart disease, but not the most common cause of arterial plaque growth. Studies now show that the dramatic increase in pre diabetes, obesity, and the overuse of sugar and trans fat cause most heart disease. Dr. Masley explains the new state-of-the art tests available that can show arterial plaque growth at a much earlier stage-and what steps you can take to actually stop and reverse the growth.

The good news is that everyone-regardless of size, genetics, gender, or age-can treat arterial plaque and prevent heart attacks and strokes with THE 30-DAY HEART TUNE-UP. The keys to the program are shrinking arterial plaque, improving circulation, and strengthening your heartbeat using these tools:

  • Heart-healing foods
  • Exercise that strengthens your heart and arteries
  • Stress management
  • A customized heart-friendly supplement plan
THE 30-DAY HEART TUNE-UP program is easy, fast, and could even be called sexy. Dr. Masley devotes a chapter to showing how improving heart health enhances sex drive and function in both men and women.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
01/20/2014
Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to feel healthier, sexier, trimmer, and mentally sharper in just 30 days? In his latest book, Masley (Ten Years Younger) looks at cardiovascular disease and advises readers on how to turn back the clock by reducing formed arterial plaque and how to prevent plaque buildup. Keys to success are improving diet, exercise, and stress management. With nuts, berries, avocados, and chocolate included in this plan, and over 50 recipes, readers need not worry about being deprived. Adding a phased exercise plan, most of which can be implemented from home and does not require much gear or machinery, is essential. While both diet and exercise will help reduce stress, reducing stress will also increase the benefit of diet and exercise; sleep quality, relaxation routines, and biofeedback resources are explored. Masley promises that by following this plan, readers can “enjoy a heart ten years younger than when started”—a worthy goal for anyone with cardiovascular health concerns. (Feb.)

Cardiologist and Co-author of The Great Cholesterol Myth

Library Journal
03/15/2014
Masley (Ten Years Younger), a nutritionist and physician who runs a wellness clinic in Florida, is back with a new plan to help reverse heart disease. His goal is to get people who are taking cholesterol-lowering drugs and still not feeling healthier to make the lifestyle changes that we all know are necessary. His advice is a generally straightforward and positive approach to eating better, reducing stress, and exercising more. Masley recommends evaluating the health of your heart and blood vessels with a carotid intimal medial thickness (IMT) test; if that's not possible, he has suggestions for using a simple fitness step test at home. After the assessment is a four-pronged plan of aerobic exercise and strength training, recommended foods, stress management, and supplements. The book also includes 60 healthy recipes for foods such as quinoa salad and gumbo. VERDICT There's nothing really new here, but an easy-to-read and motivational style makes this a preventative prescription that may go down well with the general public. Recommended for readers interested in improving their health.—Elizabeth A. Williams, St. Matthew's Univ. Sch. of Medicine, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
