New Book Targets Better Nutrition for Heart Attack Survivors: Prevent a Second Heart Attack

Author inspired after her father dies from second heart attack; focus is on 8 foods, includes recipes

Janet Brill

Janet Bond Brill, Ph.D., R.D., LDN, is a leading diet, nutrition, and fitness author; guest nutrition and health expert on national television. She specializes in cardiovascular disease prevention.

Jan. 12, 2011 - Each year, roughly 1.5 million Americans have a heart attack -- and most of them survive. But research shows that just one year after their diagnosis, the vast majority of these 13 million American heart attack survivors fail to adhere to the dietary changes that could prevent a second heart attack.

After her father's death at a young age from his second heart attack, and by her husband heart attack at age 51,  Janet Bond Brill, Ph.D., R.D., LDN, decided to look very closely at what could be done to make a difference in her husband's life. The research inspired her to write Prevent a Second Heart Attack: 8 Foods, 8 Weeks to Reverse Heart Disease.

"I want to teach Sam and the 13 million other American heart attack survivors how to live long, happy, and healthy lives -- and to teach them how to prevent that second lethal attack and even reverse the actual disease process," Brill says.

Brill, a leading diet, nutrition and fitness expert, offers a successful, straightforward, eight-point program in her newest book. Her simple, easy-to-follow lifestyle plan can reduce the risk of a second heart attack by up to 70 percent, according to the publisher.

Inspired by the heart-healthy, time-proven Mediterranean diet, Brill's approach is simple: incorporate eight key food groups -- like olive oil, oatmeal, leafy greens, even red wine and dark chocolate -- into your daily diet, and get moderate exercise each day.

Among the more than 50 recipes:
   ● Oatmeal, Walnut, and Flaxseed Pancakes
   ● Whole-Grain Pizza with Arugula, Eggplant, and Caramelized Onions
   ● Shallow-Poached Salmon with Fennel and Saffron
   ● Shrimp with Artichoke-Garlic Sauce
   ● Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts

These and the other recipes in the book feature the 8 foods that are the core of the plan.

Backed by cutting-edge research, Brill explains why each food is so important to cardiovascular wellness, and gives creative tips on how to get a daily dose of each one. 

Packed with every tool someone needs - including daily checklists, nutrition information, a complete two-week eating plan, and dozens of mouth-watering recipes to suit every meal, taste, and budget - the delicious and foolproof program ensures that heart attack survivors and their loved ones will be satisfied, rather than deprived, as they eat their way to better heart health.
