“The best measure to prolong human life is not to shorten it” Doctor Hulefand wrote more than two hundred years ago.
If you have one or more health conditions such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol and triglycerides which place you at risk for cardiovascular disease, don’t assume modern medicine has all the answers for you...
After I got a bachelor degree in Nutrition Science and became certified as a Registered Dietitian by the American Dietetic Association, I realized that writing Your Heart Needs the Mediterranean Diet was a must. Why?
Because I was born and raised in Spain and I have experienced all the health benefits a Mediterranean diet and lifestyle have to offer. On the other side of the spectrum, and like you, I constantly see around me the devastating effects of today's Western diet and Western lifestyle.
I wrote Your Heart Needs the Mediterranean Diet in an innovative and simple-to-follow dialogue format. Al, a fictional patient and Emi, the Dietitian, embark on a journey to reverse Al’s high blood pressure and high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides.
As you progress with the chapters and implement the knowledge acquired throughout the book, you will be able to decrease your risk of heart disease, spend more time with your family, friends and your community, and reduce stress at work. You will realize that you are becoming happier and healthier by following the Mediterranean lifestyle!
This book will also empower you with the knowledge to contribute to your family and friends’ health and happiness. Isn’t it wonderful?
According to statistics from the World Health Organization, Mediterraneans have almost half as many deaths from cardiovascular disease as Americans.
Thus, if the Mediterranean diet has worked for its people for centuries in warding off many of the chronic diseases that plague us now, why not copy it?
Remember that without health there is no happiness. By paying $14.99 now you can save thousands of dollars and a lot of grief in the future.
Laura Calderon, DrPH, RD Review: Emilia Klapp’s book, Your Heart Needs the Mediterranean Diet, offers a glimpse of how a Registered Dietitian can personalize a lifestyle intervention. This book is presented in an innovative, fun to read, yet informative manner, and considers the whole person, not just diet. It gives simple explanations on the ‘whys’ of eating more fruits and vegetables or such topics as how hypertension stresses the body. This clever book is so delightful to read; you won’t even realize you are learning about the Mediterranean lifestyle for a healthier ‘you’. The Mediterranean lifestyle has been proven by scientific research to have health benefits, and now it can be followed easily with this handy and entertaining guide that includes tips and recipes. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to make a change to a healthier lifestyle.
