Tips & Warnings
- Know that in an emergency, or if an individual cannot make significant lifestyle changes, surgery or drugs may be appropriate interventions for heart disease.
- Remember that when you eat a meat-based diet that is high in fat, you stimulate the enzyme in your liver that stimulates your liver to make more cholesterol. Red meat, which is high in saturated fat, converts into oxidants such as iron, which changes cholesterol to a dangerous form.
- Despite all the good press, avoid olive oil. It is just as high in fat as the other oils.
- Check with your doctor before you partake in this program. This information is not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment.
