Publisher's Summary

During his more than 30 years as a vascular surgeon, Richard Furman literally held clogged arteries and diseased hearts in his hands and wondered why the person lying on the table hadn't been more careful. Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in America, and in most cases it is completely preventable. So why are we slowly destroying our bodies and killing ourselves? And what can we do to turn it around? The good news is, simple, sustainable lifestyle changes can mean the difference between health and infirmity, between life and death. Putting his three decades of experience and education to work, Dr. Furman gives readers the strategies they need to live not just longer, but younger.

Loved loved loved it life changing!

What a fabulous book easy to listen to I'm going to listen again and this time take some notes my brother in law did what doctor said and in 19 days lost 16 pounds lowered his resting heart rate from 79 to 70:) it's not necessarily a weight loss book obviously however if you need to lose weight working on getting yourself heart-healthy will do that for you as well:)

Like Having Your PC & Nutritionist In Your House!

You will never again return from your Dr's visit still dumbfounded/bewildered as to why you bothered going in the 1st place...Using the advice in this book, you will know exactly how to correct most medical problems using diet, exercise, and ideal weight.

This book is powerful on several levels. It is an information manual on understanding...
1. The body's arterial structure and functionality.
2. How to read food labels to avoid bad fats that negatively affect the body.
3. The relationship to diet, exercise and maintaining ideal weight and how to achieve all for optimal health.
4.. It shows how to prevent stroke, heart disease, dementia, cancer, ED, and other dysfunctions...

Thank you Dr Furman For the 'Legacy Gift' that you've given to the world. To you I wish the blessings of 3 John 2.

Simple steps, life-changing results, will I do it?

The author doesn't suggest anything he hasn't been doing all his adult life. If you make 5 or 7 changes to your eating & activity, you can be approximately 7 years younger than your age. You can avoid diabetes, heart issues, damage to joints, strokes, and very likely, Alzheimer's disease. The doctor gives lots of evidence from medical journals, scientifically done studies, and a life-time of patient experiences from his practice as a physician & surgeon.
He knows these changes can be hard. All of them are best, but he says even a few will help your quality of life & health.

A Must Read for Everyone!

Whether your concerned about your health or not this book is a wake-up call to those of us following the typical American diet and mostly sedentary lifestyle. I highly recommend this Audible recording for those not inclined to pick up a book. Dr. Furman knows and cares about you and your health!

Very basic

Basic and repetitive.could have finished making the same point in 10 minutes. Everything else is rambling.
