Prevent a Second

Heart Attack

8 Foods, 8 Weeks

to Reverse Heart Disease


By Janet Bond Brill,

Ph.D., R.D., LDN


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 the 13 million American heart attack survivors fail to adhere to the dietary changes that could prevent a second heart attack.


After losing her father to his second heart attack and fearing that her husband, Sam, would suffer the same fate after his first, Dr. Janet Bond Brill was inspired to write PREVENT A SECOND HEART ATTACK: 8 FOODS, 8 WEEKS TO REVERSE HEART DISEASE (a Three Rivers Press paperback original; $15.00; February 1, 2011) 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 potentially lethal attack and even reverse the actual disease process. 


Janet Bond Brill, Ph.D., R.D., LDN, a leading diet, nutrition and fitness expert, offers a successful, straightforward, eight-point program in PREVENT A SECOND HEART ATTACK.  Her plan can reduce the risk of a second heart attack by up to 70 percent. Inspired by the heart-healthy, time-proven Mediterranean diet, Brill’s plan is simple: incorporate eight key food groups—including olive oil, oatmeal, leafy greens, and even red wine and dark chocolate—into your daily diet, and get moderate exercise each day.  Sample recipes featured in the book include:


*     Oatmeal, Walnut, and Flaxseed Pancakes

*    Whole-Grain Pizza with Arugula, Eggplant, and Caramelized Onion

*     Shallow-Poached Salmon with Fennel and Saffron

*     Shrimp with Artichoke-Garlic Sauce

*    Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts


Backed by cutting-edge research, Dr. 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 an array of helpful tools—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.


With the reassuring and accessible voice of a trusted health professional, PREVENT A SECOND HEART ATTACK gives heart attack survivors the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to make simple—but life-changing—diet and lifestyle modifications to reverse their disease and live long, heart-healthy lives.
