Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease
Only System Scientifically Proven to Reverse Heart Disease Without Drugs or Surgery.
Dr. Dean Ornish is the first clinician to offer documented proof that heart disease can be halted,
or even reversed, simply by changing your lifestyle. Based on his internationally acclaimed scientific
study, which has now been ongoing for years, Dr. Ornish's program has yielded amazing results.
Participants reduced or discontinued medications; their chest pain diminished or disappeared;
they felt more energetic, happy, and calm; they lost weight while eating more; and blockages
in coronary arteries were actually reduced.
In his breakthrough book, Dr. Ornish presents this and other dramatic evidence and guides
you, step by step, through the extraordinary Opening Your Heart program, which is winning
landmark approval from America's health insurers. The program takes you beyond the purely
physical side of health care to include the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects
so vital to healing. This book represents the best modern medicine has to offer. It can
inspire you to open your heart to a longer, better, happier life.
Ingeniously disguised as a weight-loss manual, this bestselling guide to preventing and in some
cases, reversing heart disease through diet, exercise, and soul nourishing comes from renowned
cardiologist Dr. Dean Ornish, the first doctor to prove that there are alternatives to
surgery for clearing clogged arteries namely, diet, exercise, and stress management.
Citing his own published research findings, Ornish concludes that eating a vegetarian
diet with only 10 percent of the total daily calories from fat is the first step to
healthier, happier living. The other key elements--moderate exercise, fostering social
support, and reconnecting with the self--take more time and care. For these, Ornish
offers about 75 pages of encouraging words, again backed by numerous research findings
and his personal experiences.
About 250 gourmet recipes from two dozen famous chefs help ease the blow to those who
view becoming vegetarian as a dramatic lifestyle change. The good news is, entrées
like Polenta Alla Veneziana and Tofu Gumbo will surely tickle the taste buds;
the bad news is, the sheer number of ingredients and lengthy prep time required
for most recipes could send readers running back to their favorite fast-food joints.
Plenty of cooking methods, tips, and food descriptions help demystify the recipes;
Ornish also provides a comprehensive nutritional analysis of common foods as
well as for each dish. But the great strength of Eat More, Weigh Less is in
Ornish's opening sections, where he builds a solid case for curbing fat, tossing
out the meat and dairy, and fostering mental and emotional happiness. - Liane Thomas
