Turning forty and obese and
suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol and pre
Type II diabetes made me take an inventory of my life. I was
very unhealthy, could barely walk up a flight of stairs, and
concerned for my health. My best friend who was in perfect
shape, financially worry-free and had a wife who was a dietitian
passed away at just 50. He was of perfect health, I was of
pathetic health...it should have been me. Something had to
change, as my cardiovascular system was failing.
I had realized that the
advice that I was getting from doctors was the wrong advice.
“Just take these pills for the rest of you life and keep doing
what your doing and your will be just fine,” was the standard
advice I got. The high blood pressure medicine made me tired and
not where I wanted to be mentally. I was so fat I was beginning
to get sleep apnea.
Finally I had enough. I
began researching weight loss techniques, diets and various life
style changes. I read 100’s of books on diet, exercise
programs, psychology of eating, and the curative properties of
food. I decided that for long-term weigh loss the best solution
was to learn how to eat right. I decided then, that I would
eat my way back to health, not diet or exercise.
When a friend of mine was
diagnosed with breast cancer, I studied food ties to cancer. A
stunning conclusion, coronary heart, diabetes, cancer and high
cholesterol all have ties to what you eat. This book sets you
up with the information you need to change your lifestyle and
begin eating in a healthful way. I have included critical
information on chronic diseases and obesity. I wish you my
success, as I have lost over 100 pounds of fat and have been
off all medicine for years.
