Most similar books advocate changes in diet so radical, that they are absurd and patently unrealistic - not this one! It explains in plenty of detail how to reasonably modify our diets in order to have marked effects on those diseases that rob us of our health and vitality. In addition to his dietary counsel, Dr. Masley wisely includes practical advice on how to exercise efficiently, de-stress our minds, and improve our sex lives.
Although I already consider myself pretty healthy and knowledgeable about the medical field, I was thrilled to learn so much more from this one book. It will definitely change not only my diet, but my approach to life!
**Update 2 months down the road and the improvements continue...2 inch. waist loss...now my formerly tight pants are loose! These "tune-up" suggested dietary and lifestyle changes are fast becoming habits and it's all been relatively easy for me. I will give future updates as it's warranted
• Why a little bit of stress is healthy and how important love and support is
• How romance and a cuddle raises oxytocin and lowers cortisol
• How we have disease-care and not health-care and why we must focus more on blood sugar than cholesterol
• For every woman who dies of breast cancer, 6 women die from heart disease
• His 4 tests for assessing risk for heart disease: (the four Fs to fantastic heart health): fitness, fiber, body fat and food/nutrients. His top advice is to be fit (he has a fitness test in his book) and eat 30g of fiber a day!
• The carotid IMT/ intimal medial thickness test (this was new to me!) and the advanced lipid profile
• How statins don’t help reduce the risk of heart disease in women and some of the side-effects. I was aware of muscle aches and memory loss but did not know that they lower testosterone levels and raise blood sugar
• The five new categories of food that will prevent and reverse heart disease: fiber, lean and clean protein, healthy fats, beneficial beverages and fantastic flavors. I love his last category – herbs, garlic, ginger, turmeric!
• The top two foods that cause heart disease: Refined carbs/sugar/flour and trans fat/partially hydrogenated oils. Not fat, and not cholesterol!
This book is important for me and my clients because of the link between anxiety and increased risk of heart disease. The wonderful thing is that by following the guidelines in this book, your heart will be healthy and you’ll likely start to feel less anxious! If you are super-sensitive to caffeine then just use common sense when it comes to Dr. Masley’s suggestions for dark chocolate, coffee and green tea.

My husband I are pretty good cooks and somewhat foodies. Was surprised to see the 60 great recipes included in the back of the book that were so imaginative and nutritious. Turns out the doctor also took lessons at a Culinary Institute, can't remember if he got a degree from them or just took lessons. Regardless, good recipes.
Also, liked that the book was endorsed by David Perlmutter, MD of Grain Brain, whom I also like. So, this was a win-win for us. Board Certified Traditionally Trained Physician and a Fellow of the American Heart Association who believes in healing by nutrition! This way, I can have our family physician order some of the tests recommended by him (which BTW, our doctor had already ordered the more common and not as useful tests (which cost more!!!) and hopefully he will go with the recommendations because of his credentials.
