hi all.

i am only 39 y.o


i got 2 stent in sept 2008

and just got 2 more stent last week.....nov 2009

and still have a block artery at 60% and some area that as some plak.

so it those not look good....sadly.

so i went and got a few books.

the china study
prevent and reverse heart discease...frome mr..caldwell esselstyn
reverse heart disease now
dr dean ornish,s reversig heart disease
dr neal barnard,s reversing diabetes

wow there is a lot off in fo in those books.

actualy they say..................GO GREEN....GO VEGAN THAT IS about IT ALL OFF THEM.

so i am starting to think to go leen and green.

but now i read on the net the GO RAW food.

ok mabe i am not a guy to go fully raw..but those sound good for you.

but wen you read some off the books...its those say oil any oil is not good..even canola and olive oil...IF YOU have heart clogong prob.

even nut are not good.and i love nuts.

so its pretty hard to get everything frome veg/fruit only if you cant eat nuts and oil etc.

I am sorry to hear of your news and of course your anxiety re living heart healthy. Have you access to a nutrionist that you can make an appointment with and talk about what types of foods would be best for you?

Here is a link to a great web site and be sure to check out the resources at the bottom of the site.

Yes, vegan is absolutely the way to go, especially low sodium, too, which a lot of them may not mention too much.

my family has a lot of heart problems and one of us in even on the transplant list, so we've done a LOT of research on diet since there are no cures for what we have and it's not regular blocked arteries.

anyway, the point of my post is that 1. vegan is hands down the best thing you can do for yourself. 2. do NOT change your diet all at once but gradually phase out red meats and salt and then poultry, etc, over a few weeks so your body adjusts. 3. do NOT go raw vegan until you've eaten regular vegan for at least six months and your body is used to it. and then don't go 100% raw overnight either. the digestion of raw vs cooked is different and needs getting used to. also, even people who swear by raw vegan don't usually eat 100% raw all the time (they may for long stretches but usually slip some cooked food in there sometimes).

as for oil and nuts, you need them in small amounts. a handful of almonds a day or a few on top of a salad, and some oil is fine. i think a lot of what they say is scare tactics b/c Americans usually go overboard on so much. we don't know what a real serving size is. 1 oz of oil is a little medicine cup, so 2 of those is all the oil you need on your salad, but we tend to put double or triple, for example.

a nutritionist or a naturopath is a great help. there are also books on how to go vegan, too.

1. it couldn't hurt and 2. try it for at least a month and see how awesome you feel. good luck!
