The best way to protect your heart is to lower your internal inflammation levels.

The best way to do that is to lower your sugar and starch intake. They're empty calories for nutritional purposes, but a loaded gun for your heart health.

I can not convince his how much it would mean to me

My triglycerides went from 330 in April to 82, and I lost 34 pounds in that time. There's a lot we can do for our tickers!

Another great read for the health of the body is: "YOU: On A Diet" by Dr. Oz. I have both the South Beach Diet book, per Jibbie, and YOU: On A Diet.

These books together are a powerhouse of information. YOU: On A Diet explains in layman's terms and with cartoon sketches, (as only Dr. Oz can do), how the body works and what happens when you care for it, and when you don't care for it. It has a storehouse of knowledge, information, and tips to help you understand why your body functions the way it does.

The South Beach Diet is geared to help one with getting their numbers, (blood pressure, sugar, cholesterol, ect.), going in the right direction.

Both books will do your heart wonders, and your body will thank you for it.

I think everyone should read ARTHUR AGATSTON, M.D.'s book "The South Beach Heart Health Program." as he is a Cardiologist and Professor at the U. of Miami Medical School. I've learned so much about Metabolic Syndrome/pre-diabetes from reading his books.

Great article. I love Valentine's Day. True it gets a lot of flack for being so commercialized; still, any day that brings hearts and love to the surface (even superficially) is okay by me.

Great article. My mother smoked and died from a heart attack when I was 17. She knew it was bad for her, but she made no effort to stop. YOGA would be more helpful with re leaving stress.
