For those hoping to reduce their risk of heart attack, stroke, and diabetes, "The Healthy Heart Miracle" offers a simple, 8-week plan that works or without cholesterol or blood pressure-lowering drugs.

The exercise program Dr. Mirkin has devised accommodates differing levels of fitness and is geared toward today's hectic, time-strapped lives.

Review:

During the carb-cutting craze, Dr Gabe Mirkin reminds us that not all carbohydrates are alike. Drawing on a post-Atkins approach, Dr Mirkin and coauthor Diana Mirkin approach eating and fitness in terms of a healthy hearts rather than a smaller jean size. The centrepiece of their approach is exercise paired with "ASH" a meatless and whole grain diet designed to reduce chances of suffering from heart attack, diabetes and stroke. The "miracle" of the title refers to how quickly and dramatically this diet can lower blood pressure and "bad" cholesterol counts. Using an eight-week workbook format, the authors offer clear explanations of healthy heart concepts including cholesterol, blood sugar, body fat and fibre. They offer accessible assessment tools (body mass index, the apple vs pear body shape and the "pinch test"). Writing with a clear and engaging style, the Mirkins point readers toward the prevention of diseases such as diabetes, hardened arteries and dementia. As author of the bestselling Sports Medicine Book, Dr Mirkin emphasises fitness as much as food. The organisation of the book into eight-week modules can be confusing. But the specific ideas including recipes, food lists and fitness options are practical and persuasive. --Barbara Mackoff, Amazon.com
