Robert Kowalski's personal story is legendary. By the age of forty-one, he had suffered a heart attack and had undergone two coronary bypass surgeries. A traditional dietary approach to lowering his cholesterol failed dismally, and faced with the unpleasant alternative of a lifetime on medication, he created a program that proved astonishingly effective for him -- and legions of others worldwide who use it.

From the dust jacket: "THE 8-WEEK CHOLESTEROL CURE" is a three-pronged approach based on modified diet and special foods and vitamins that actually reduce cholesterol. It works by (1) reducing the amount of fat and cholesterol consumed; (2) increasing the quantity of cholesterol eliminated by the body; and (3) limiting the amount of cholesterol produced by the body. It is a program that says "yes" where others say "no", offering a number of practical suggestions for enjoying a healthy life to the fullest, whether dining out or at home. It is also a very personal story of one man's fight against the nation's number-one killer.
This updated, revised edition includes four new chapters and the most up-to-date information on cholesterol-testing methods; new oatbran products; special considerations for women, children, and the elderly; the importance of HDL cholesterol; exercise; the reversal of heart disease; and more."
