Dr. Pinkney,
the question of Bob Waite and your reply brought me to the important concept of what is "to reverse heart disease". This concept may be the motto to have success with the eating big changes, with a new VLT and plant based food diet. That is a big change of old habits obtained during many decades.

I tried to "check" this concept and I got different answers from many cardiologists. Their answers differ much, of course depending of the "school" they adopted.

The best concept that make things simple and efficient of course is what Dr. E says: VLFT, plant based food, no oil, no avocados. Exercise it is good and I am not against. In Dr. E case to reverse is to be "heart attack free". Most of us agree that such achievement it is excellent and that is the real goal.

In other hand my cardiologists say: VLF, Plant Based Food is ok for reversing, but exercise it is 50% of good reverse due to the collaterals that are activated and open through exercise (you also recommend exercises in your book).

Other authors of books on Reversing Heart Disease recommend additional nutrients, activities, statins, etc and some go to extremes about it.

I adopted Dr. E diet plus exercising 40 minutes a day of "briskly walking", quoted words that are in your book. I feel in control of the disease, but future exams will confirm it or not. I have faith that exams will show better red images in the Pet scans and less blockage shown in Computerized Scans, as other examples that people obtained.

Please comment. I would like very much to have your definition and reasonable limits of what is to "Reverse Heart Disease".
