Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is astonishing. Reads like a thriller." -- Dallas Morning News

"Appealing." -- Entertainment Weekly

"A wonderful book. It reads like a novel. Beautifully written." -- Layna Berman, Pacifica Radio Network

"Bayan does a fine job translating medical terminology and, with a keen sense of humor, explaining how people can integrate healthy behavior into everyday life." -- Publishers Weekly

"An exhortation to all of us to become better informed and more involved in our own care..." - Tulsa World Newspaper

"Through trial and error, Bayan and Nevada cardiologist Dr. Frank Carrea created a customized life-saving regime. Their experimental journey is dramatically profiled in Bayan's insightful and highly personal book." -- Spokane Spokesman Review

"Matthew Bayan's book is as gripping as a heart attack and packed with valuable information that could save your life." -- George J. Pratt, Ph.D. co-author of INSTANT EMOTIONAL HEALING

From Publishers Weekly

The title of this book is misleading: Bayan's story does not give license to eat fat. Instead, it exemplifies why patients need to become their own doctors and be active in taking good care of themselves. What Americans don't know can kill them, as first-time author Bayan demonstrates in his book, which is part medical memoir and part how-to advice. Cutting out fat is recognized today as one of the keys to promoting heart health, but a low-fat diet is also a recipe for disaster for the minority of people who have the ApoB gene, which actually raises the level of LDL (bad) cholesterol. Bayan, a public health manager who regularly exercised, never smoked and vigilantly watched what he ate, was unaware that he had the ApoB gene (which he dubs the "Heart-Stopper") until it was almost too late. Revelation came in the form of a massive heart attack that nearly killed him at age 45. Up to 20% of Americans carry the Heart-Stopper gene, but many doctors are unfamiliar with the technology that can be used to detect it--and potentially save patients' lives. Parts of the memoir are overwritten--the drama of the situation really ought to speak for itself--but Bayan does a fine job translating medical terminology and, with a keen sense of humor, explaining how people can integrate healthy behavior into everyday life.
