Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Duke University's rice diet program has been proven as a safe and fast method to reverse and prevent heart disease--the cause of 42 percent of all deaths in the U.S.--and also high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, and obesity. Dietitian Rosati, the program's nutrition director, outlines this challenging three-part program: an aggressive diet (low in fat, extremely low in salt, and at least initially vegetarian), moderate exercise, and a spiritual or emotional path of one's choice (not just stress management). The latter component, according to the author, gives the dieter the needed strength to change unhealthy lifestyles and comply with this rigorous plan. Complete, detailed discussions of nutrition basics, food labeling, grains and beans, herbs as a substitute for salt, and a selection of spiritual-emotional pathways are followed by more than 150 recipes and sources for cookbooks and specific food items. Penny Spokes

If you are interested in living and eating well, this book is for you. Kitty lays out a scrumptious feast of foods, nutritional facts, and updated research on mind, body, and spirit for us to observe, nibble on, or devour hungrily. Because of the Rice Diet Program about which Kitty writes, I have lost 100 pounds of killing weight. My cholesterol went from 257 to 190 in ten months. My triglycerides went from 193 to 86-118. My HDL was raised; my LDL,lowered. My blood pressure was 160 over 95 and now averages 90 over 55. Kitty Rosati is a wonderful, caring, credentialed woman who has written a book that will influence your thinking and may change your life

"Heal Your Heart" is not your ordinary nutrition book. THe nutrition information also addresses hypertension, kidney disease ( the reason for the original Rice Diet from Duke University Medical Center) obesity and diabetes in addition to heart disease. The technical information is presented in a readable non-technical fashion to help motivate the reader to want to try the excellent recipes provided. Very helpful is the appendix which lists anotated information about products and the addresses to contact the suppliers. As an alumna of the program, I can vouch for the fact that the menu plans and food choices can improve health conditions and in many cases reverse the condition to normal. To enhance the useability of the text, it is recommended by this user to have the book spiral bound at a printing services company. Bon apetite on your way to better health.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book! The recipes are simply delicious--I never have been able to bake bread before and have it turn out, but the whole wheat recipe here comes out beautifully and it's delicious. Some of my favorite recipes are the banana barley loaf, the lentil loaf, the oat pancakes and topping (I used apples rather than pears for the topping), the corn bread, the lentil soup, the marina and pasta sauces, the Indian Subzi. There are too many to name them all! And too, I use the advice in this book to convert older favorite recipes with unhealthy ingredients to heart healthy yet delicious alternatives. I love the approach too, with a focus on not only nutrition and fitness but also emotional and spiritual health-- I found that once I was used to not adding salt to food, and consistently followed the advice in the book, I no longer craved foods as I used to, achieved my target weight, and felt better than I ever had in my life. I have never had heart disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure, but all are very prevalent in my family. I wanted to do something to lose weight and to keep myself fit. I think the advice in this book is for everyone, those with heart disease and those who want to keep their hearts healthy. Heal Your Heart is an awesome book that can change your life.

This is a great book for anyone interested in losing weight or achieving better health. It is an excellent description of the renowned Rice Diet Program of Duke University. Kitty lays out the program in a very readable manner. The recipes are delicious, and you feel good about yourself when you eat this way. This book contains a wealth of information about nutrition and exercise, and I know I will be consulting it on a regular basis for its recipes and its facts about nutrition

I found the book very informative. The combination of nutrition, exercise and spirituality all tied together made you seem like there is a purpose for change. Making a few of the moderate changes in this book resulted in positive results. Much to my surprise I was actaully eating more but lost weight.

Heal Your Heart is simply one of the best texts on nutrition and diet one can buy. The menu plans are easy to read and flexible building upon the idea of exchanges for particular food groups. The diet emphasizes low sodium which many similar diets don't include to their detriment. One can choose from a variety of caloric levels, 1000 calories, 1200 calories, 1500 calories and so forth to adjust the exchanges to your personal situation. I found the text easy to read and straightforward. Rosati's discussion of physical activity and especially spirituality round out a holistic healthy life style for the motivated reader. Superb.

this book confused me. why did it need to be so mathmatically challenging? i don't want formulas and percentages.....just tell me what to do and how to do it. this plan is a good one, and i found better, easier to follow info on the net for free. i'm using maybe 5 pages out of this entire book to supplement the info i found. find it on clearance or borrow someone's copy.
