Over 2.5 million people have bought Don't Eat Your Heart Out and other books by Joseph C. Piscatella. Why? Because Piscatella is the leading layman who knows how to talk compellingly and directly to everyone who has heart disease or a cholesterol problem. He knows what to say, what to do, and how to motivate. And he's a convincing authority like no other: At the age of 32, Piscatella had to pick himself up from the operating table after emergency bypass surgery and learn to recover his full cardiac health through diet and lifestyle. It is now 28 years later, a milestone Piscatella reached by walking the talk.
Now, 10 years in the making and as necessary as ever comes The Road to a Healthy Heart Runs through the Kitchen. While keeping the same thrust and plain-speaking that's made the original a bible used and recommended by thousands of hispitals, the new book reflects the very latest scientific recommendations. For the first time, it offers easy-to-follow menus that will start every reader on the road to lifetime health. It directly connects 10 major risk factors to diet; explains misconceptions about fat and carbohydrates, including the unhealthyful effects of low-carbohydrate diets; and offers, for everyone's pleasure, 300 recipes (60% all-new) that are delicious, healthy, easy-to-prepare, completely family friendly--the patient isn't the only who should be eating this way--and analyzed for key nutritional information. This is the book that proves that good food and good health can go together.
