You are welcome here, Beale. And this is from the owner of this site.

You are absolutely correct in assuming that the cause of a TIA (transient ischemic attack or mini-stroke) is the plaque laden arteries that result in heart attacks.

And there is documented scientific evidence that a single high-fat meal can cause a stroke or heart attack. Your cognitive deficit after pizza or other high fat intake is not all that rare.

It's great to hear that you've learned your lesson. I hope you won't soon forget it.

If you read the Healthy Heart Handbook on the Healing Heart Foundation website (see link below), you'll find we have some things in common.

I eat pizza these days, but it's all veggie and no cheese. Made with a little extra sauce on a thin crust and some extra oregano and basil on top, it can be surprisingly good - and heart healthy, too.

On the website you'll also find over 250 recipes and lots of help to keep to a low-fat vegan diet.

Welcome to our forum.
