    It's a pleasant surprise to hear doctors talking about diets. Many seems to equate the Ornish diet to the end all heart disease, but it is just one of the four lifestyle changes that Dr. Ornish requires. Even with the other lifestyle improvements (quit smoking, exercise, and relieving stress), the reduction in arteries occlusion was minimal. I think we focus too much on diet and often times forget that not addressing all four of the factors create inflammation which in turns causes poor arterial health that leads to heart disease and stroke. The million dollar question is how are we able to do all of the above?

    I was a low fat vegan for a few years, but I smoked cigarettes, held 2 relatively stressful jobs, and didn't get much exercise. I'm looking at heart bypass surgery in three weeks. That's the reality of my life that I can't change. I've stopped smoking cigarettes and will implement more walking in my daily routines. Unfortunately, I have at least 15 more years of working. Hopefully, doing some of these will give me a better chance at old age. BTW, I am only 48.

    Thanks for the video; I am very happy what I saw. I follow the Starch Solution strictly so I'm pretty biased since I saw very stark improvement quickly. I was pleased to see these doctors give very good advice. The Starch Solution is like the Dean Ornish diet, mentioned in this presentation, in a way that it is what many deem 'radical' but it has extremely good results.

    Of course, many of the unhealthy foods are designed for maximum addictiveness and that is a big reason people can't stop. I believe that moderation of such addictive foods works for a select few, lucky people but most cannot. I chose to quit them altogether. This also allows my taste to become acclimated to a new level of taste.

    I have been lucky to have a life situation living alone, with plenty of time and lower amount of stress, plus plenty of sleep, which lends itself to avoiding very unhealthy foods.

    For people that are willing to do what it takes all the way to stop heart disease, the whole food-plant based diets work, I feel: Caldwell Esselstyn, Dean Ornish, Nathan Pritikin, John Mcdougall. Good luck to you all staying healthy.

    I purchased pollock and cod at Walmart. It was not too expensive and today I cooked it in olive oil with peppers, tomatoes, onions, lemon pepper, and wine. It was very good! I am going to try to eat a small fish a day. Thanks for the video!
