Take a look, who would have thought that at I would be a Heart Attack Survivor, certainly not me. On 9-22-12, I had a major heart attack. I was very fortunate to have already gotten into my best shape in the last 15 years and, in fact, was participating in a sprint triathelon so paramedics were right there.

A fully blocked artery, "coding", other complications and a week in ICU followed by now weeks of recovery and rest find me on my way to, thankfully, a new life of nutrition ...
Take a look, who would have thought that at I would be a Heart Attack Survivor, certainly not me. On 9-22-12, I had a major heart attack. I was very fortunate to have already gotten into my best shape in the last 15 years and, in fact, was participating in a sprint triathelon so paramedics were right there.

A fully blocked artery, "coding", other complications and a week in ICU followed by now weeks of recovery and rest find me on my way to, thankfully, a new life of nutrition and healthy living.

Although my blood tests were always within normal range, I now find myself learning a "new normal". I must keep saturated fats in my diet to no more than 10grams per day, get lower in sodium and keep cholesterol way down as well. I am also working to reduce stress and get my cardiac strength back. The result is a new adventure in cooking, rethinking my priorities, getting back into excersicing and having fun with it all.

I hope that my adventure can help others and that others can help me!
