    Very nice piece! May I suggest that like Dr. Dean Ornish’s studies have shown, a mostly plant-based diet is probably the epitome of a heart healthy diet.

    I’m not quite as strict as he is in the healthy eating plan I advocate which is a form of flexitarian eating where I help people turn all of their favorite comfort foods into health foods by making them over to their healthiest, usually plant-based forms so no one ever has to feel deprived being heart healthy. I also includes “cheat time” that allows some meals every now and then to be lean poultry, and fish is a regular part of the plan.

    In general, the more plant-based, with low-level mercury fish for heart-healthy omega-3’s, one can make thier diet, along with regular physical activity that is OK by your doctor, the more heart healthy one can be.
