The Ornish Diet has been named the "#1 Best Heart-Healthy Diet" by U.S. News & World Report for seven consecutive years!

From the author of the landmark bestseller Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease comes an empowering new program that teaches you how to lower high blood pressure, lose weight, lower your cholesterol, or reverse a major disease by customizing a healthy way of eating and living based on your own desires, needs, and genetic predispositions.

Dr. Dean Ornish revolutionized medicine by directing clinical research proving-for the first time-that heart disease and early-stage prostate cancer may be stopped or even reversed by his program of comprehensive lifestyle changes, without drugs or surgery. His newest research was the first to show that changing your lifestyle changes your genes in men with prostate cancer-"turning on" disease-preventing genes, and "turning off" genes that promote breast cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses, and in only three months. This study documented, also for the first time, that these lifestyle changes may significantly increase an enzyme that lengthens telomeres-the ends of your chromosomes that control how long you live. As your telomeres get longer, your life gets longer. Your genes are not your fate.

Featuring one hundred easy-to-prepare, delicious recipes from award-winning chef Art Smith, The Spectrum can make a powerful difference in your health and well-being.

This was an interesting book to read. Makes sense but most of the things he talks about are common sense for healthy living. This would probably be a great book for someone with a lot of time to read who is not familar with a healthy lifestyle.
