In a time when both obesity and diabetes rise to new levels, Healthy Heart Miracle Diet cuts through the barrage of conflicting dietary rules issued from on-high and nails down how you can lose weight, boost your energy, and strengthen your heart.

Thirteen easy-to-read chapters help you easily adjust your diet by delivering the final word on fat, complex and simple carbs, protein, the best supplements for heart health, light exercise, and more. Throughout, more than 500 hints and tips clear up confusing nutritional claims, explode myths, and explain how eating right can be as easy as pie.

Tying everything up with a big heart-healthy, weight-conscious ribbon are 100-plus tempting recipes proving that eating right doesn't mean starving yourself or giving up the foods you love like Lasagna with Spinach, Turkey Sausage, and Three Cheeses and treats like Chocolate-Walnut Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies.
