While there is some good helpful information in this book, it goes a bit overboard on the testing aspects, i.e. heart scans CT scans, advanced lipids etc and the list goes on. But then again, it's written by a cardiologist. I think the aspects of the diet are fundamentally good but personally feel the new gold standard title on heart health should be "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease" by Caldwell Esselstyn. It was absolutely the best of all of those I've read. I did learn some things reading this but I would alert the reader to take some of it with a grain of salt. There are simply too many tests recommended and one probably does not need all of these tests. My belief is that if you consume the right foods, you probably won't need all of those tests. In a whole food plant based diet, you'll be healing your arteries and removing inflammation at the same time, so there should not be any need for a lot of these tests if the diet aspect is in place. I'm glad I bought the kindle version for $2.10 as I wouldn't pay much more for it.

If you have a health problem, particularly your heart, you have got to read this book. Turn back time if you make the commitment and follow through. You can be a healthier you. You can live healthy and be healthy without starving yourself or being on some ultra regimented diet/exercise program. Down to earth, realistic and doable.

This book changed my life! Being on the north side of 60, I had accumulated many bad eating habits and with a family history of heart disease I knew I was living with a short fuse. After reading "The South Beach Heart Program" I've lose nearly 20 pounds (and never remember really being hungry) and my blood work hasn't looked this good in about 30 years. Thank you Dr. Agatston.

I bought this book a month or so ago. No book (even the South Beach Diet book) has had more impact on my life, than this one. First, it made me stop and think of the abuse I have been inflicting on my body for so many years. Second, scared me into doing something about it. Thus I have been diligent following both the South Beach Diet, and starting an exercise plan I can follow and live with. The book is almost like a textbook, but with language anyone can follow. There are a wide variety of tests we need to have run to know where we stand with heart disease, diabetes, etc. And Dr. Agatston spells it all out for the lay person to understand and accomplish. This is a book that everyone who cares about living to a ripe old age should read. And you should wait till you're 50 to read it. Buy it now!! Truly, this 4-Step Plan may save your life.

If you read the South Beach Diet you will absolutely love this book. While it touches on some of the principles of the diet, it has much more to offer. The writing style is easy to follow and very informative and the book is loaded with practical information. If you are concerned about your heart health, this book is a must read. The book has motivated me to speak to my doctor and medication and other treatments, to exercies more and eat better and healthier foods. The author is very inspiring to read as he was in the Sough Beach Diet as well. Dr. Agatston seems very well informed, educated and highly experienced in heart health matters. This bood has excellent medical advice and lifestyle recomendations to can be easily attained by all. Read this book and you too may live a longer and more productive, healthier and happier life.

Let me sum up this book in one word - FABULOUS. Dr. Agatston gets it RIGHT, and no body else has come close. The amount of incorrect information that millions of Americans are receiving about heart disease from the mass media is shocking. Very few people are doing more than ten percent of what they need to do to prevent falling victim to this COMPLETELY PREVENTABLE DISEASE.

Most readers will read Dr. Agatston's book because he is the author of the wildly popular South Beach Diet, but this is a great standalone book. This is the book that the good Doctor could have written first, because he is a MASTER of heart disease. He is the creator of the Agatston scoring system, which is utilized when one has a heart scan.

Maybe you haven't heard of a heart scan? Dr. Agatston talks about the new heart scanners that are available in his book. The modern heart scan which is non invasive, and takes only a couple of minutes to perform is the device that will probably revolutionize heart disease care in the next ten years. At the same time very few doctors in the United States are recommending that their patients get a heart scan.

The reason is that doctors, like most of us are creatures of habit. They are also employing a business model that they don't want to change. Read Dr. Agatston's book, and you will realize that only through a painless, quick heart scan can you detect if you truly have heart disease. Oh yes, you can also detect heart disease through an $8,000 angiogram, but no insurance company will pick that up unless you have SYMPTOMS. You don't want to wait to have heart symptoms before confirming you have heart disease.

One more thing you need to know and the book is clear on this point. If you have successfully passed a treadmill test, you could STILL have heart disease that is about to deliver a massive heart attack to you. The reason is that most doctors still hold to a "Plumbers view" of heart disease learned in medical school.

They believe incorrectly that heart disease is a gradual build-up of a blockage(s) until the blockage completely blocks off the artery, and a heart attack ensues. We know now that this is only true for a minority of heart attacks. The treadmill test can only pick up blockages of 70% or more. The vast majority of heart attacks are resulting from blockages of 15% to 25%. These blockages have soft fibrous caps that suddenly ERUPT. A blood clot forms, and SCABS OVER the eruption, blocking the passageway, and BINGO, you have a massive heart attack.

Most doctors do not understand this modern theory of heart disease, which is about 4 years old. They are still adhering to the plumbers' model, ordering treadmill a test, when they should be ordering heart scans. When you then pass the treadmill test because you don't have a 70% blockage anywhere in your system, they pronounce you fit and send you home with flying colors. Meanwhile, you could have scores of 15% or 20% blockages, be a walking time bomb, and no one is intervening.

Dr. Agatston also does a fabulous job at clarifying the issue of Cholesterol. This chemical is vital to living. Our cells could not live without Cholesterol. The problem is that our bodies get too much Cholesterol with the modern diet. Our evolution is still based on the nomadic existence of millions of years of living in warm climates, with tall grasses, and a hunter, gatherer's instincts. Our modern diet produces, and allows us to inject way more Cholesterol than we need to live.

What the Doctor does so well is tell you that it's not your Cholesterol SCORE that matters, but your Cholesterol SIZE that matters. It's also the type of Cholesterol that you have that matters. As they said about Godzilla, SIZE DOES MATTER. Dr. Agatston understands and explains the importance of the different types of Cholesterol particles. Once you GET IT, it will radically change your understanding of what you have to do. There are good types and bad types of Cholesterol and it's all covered in an easy to understand manner.

Most doctors when they test you will not specify PARTICLE SIZE and TYPE. Your test comes back with a Total Cholesterol number, and you think you're home free. In reality you might have progressive heart disease. It's all in the book, and if you even think you have a remote possibility of heart disease, you need to be AWARE of these ideas.

When you are dealing with heart disease, the patient needs to be INFORMED. An informed patient gets better care and better outcomes than a patient that says to the doctor FIX ME. There are also those patients who don't want to know about their disease, and that's not the way to go.

I have read Dr. Agatston's book thoroughly, and have compared it to just about everything else on the market that's out there. It compares very favorably. He's a good writer, and the book was not ghost written for him. There are a number of books on this subject where the big guy on the cover is NOT writing the book. Medical residents, and research associates are writing them. Is this necessarily bad?

If you are paying for a big name doctor to write a heart book, you want the big name doctor to have written that book. Do you want to read a book by a famous doctor on the cover, who than has a 27-year-old resident write it for him, or do you want to read the REAL THING? The South Beach Diet Program is the real thing, written by the real guy. Good luck, and get that heart scan.

Positives: delicious, nutritious food. Never felt hungry through a year of using the recipes and menus. That was five years ago and 50 pounds ago. The 50 have stayed off because I/we still eat the same way, and always will. Negatives: preparation of many recipes takes a LOT of time and access to a few ingredients that are hard to find in a small town grocery store. This would be a TERRIFIC diet if only one had someone to prepare all this food for you. Still the best diet out there; it works and it changes the way you will eat and think about food for the rest of your life.
