Overview

Over 900,000 Americans a year are dying of heart disease - and the numbers are rising. Our current diet and exercise strategies have failed to find a solution. According to Al Sears, M. D., it's time to abandon the Modern Gospel of low-fat food and long-duration exercise as a path to heart health. We need the very opposite: heart disease continues to be America's biggest killer - and obesity has reached epidemic proportions - because of the fad for low-fat diets and despite aerobics.The solution is to reengineer the diet and exercise habits of our hunter-gatherer ancestors to fit our modern culture. To build a strong and resilient heart, says Dr. Sears, engage in brief, explosive bouts of intense exercise. Consume a diet rich in high quality fat, organic proteins and liberal helpings of fruits and vegetables. Avoid grain-based starches. Take supplements to counteract the nutritional deficiencies of modern produce.Dr. Sears has used this plan to help more than 15,000 patients successfully reverse heart disease, build stronger hearts, manage their weight and abandon their heart

    The best advice to stay healthy and fit naturally.

    This book is absolutely amazing, easy to follow steps, very precise and backed up with studies and research info. This is the way to give up starches, fake fats, and fat free food that makes us sick, and the best, without starving. It teaches the reader the truth, that eggs, butter and good fats are not bad for your health. I think that Dr Sears advice together with Dr Michael Aziz, will change the food pyramid back to how it was 50 years ago. I have already lost 15 pounds in 2 months, including Thanksgiving food.

    Great book

    As a cardiac nurse I found this book very informative for an aging male. This has put together much of what I have researched on my own over the past year years. The exercise program is truly what the heart needs. The author explains in clear, down to earth detail all the physiology of what the heart and body needs. I refer back to this book many times.

    IF you are a health savvy person, this book may be a little under your level. It is good for many people though. It covers heart healthy nutrients, a very unique type of exercise program for melting fat quickly, myths about diet. Overall, it is a easy to read and informative book. Also, some of its advice definitely bucks the mainstream thinking. If you are used to thinking things like 'fat bad, veggies good', and that is as far as you go, then you need this book.
