Sometimes we don’t want to change ourselves very much. Imagine that you’ve just left your cardiologist’s office. He or she has told you that you have to make some changes. Your blood pressure and cholesterol levels are way over the limit. Your diagnostic tests reveal the diagnosis: coronary artery disease.
Besides surgery or medication is there anything to do to lower the chance of having a heart attack or stroke? The answer is yes, as long as you are on board with some changes, how often you exercise, how much you weigh, and what you eat.
