A Healthy Diet Remains Your Best Weapon Against the #1 Killer: Heart Disease
Date:2/17/2010

Diet-to-Go customers share how their meal plans lowered their risk factors and their weight!

(PRWEB) February 17, 2010 -- It's American Heart Month and the American Heart Association warns that more than 80,000,000 Americans have one or more forms of cardiovascular disease – and that many of us don't even realize we are at risk of stroke or heart attack from high blood pressure, high cholesterol or other factors that include a poor diet. Diet-to-Go, a national leader in the creation and delivery of delicious, perfectly-portioned meals, is doing its part to help health-conscious Americans lower their risk of heart disease through healthy meal plans that meet the nutritional guidelines of major health organizations.

Darian, a Diet-to-Go customer who lives in Washington, D.C., says his cardiologist was “amazed” at his improvement following a year of dining on Diet-to-Go meals.

“I've been a very happy Diet-to-Go customer for almost a year straight and I've lost 54 pounds,” Darian said. “I just wanted you to know that you have permanently changed my life for the
better. My cardiologist was amazed at the difference in one year.

“I'm literally reversing years of heart and cholesterol damage – and I have the pictures of the inside of my arteries to prove it. One heart artery blockage has gone from being a 50% blockage to a 30% blockage in a year. I don't even have the words to describe how much better I FEEL.

“I'm actually embarrassed at how long it took me to do the simple things that Diet-to-Go does for me – eat the right foods in the right portions. Thank you for my health.”

Another customer credits Diet-to-Go with saving the life of his mother, a 75-year-old woman who not only dropped 60 pounds in six months but also saw her hypertension, cholesterol and diabetes improve dramatically in the process.

“My family and my mom's doctors are so thrilled with her progress and I thought I would share – you do make a difference,” said Hunter, of Pleasant Hills, California.

“When she started your program she had been in the hospital for the third time in a year and ended up on tons of medicines and oxygen 24 hours a day. She has hypertension and diabetes and took more pills than you could imagine.

“Since joining the program and losing the weight her medicines have been reduced or eliminated. She has gone back to work now full time and feels so much better. Her doctor has told us that losing the weight has saved her life. Her high blood pressure meds went down 50 milligrams, her insulin went down 68 milligrams, and her cholesterol meds went down 20 milligrams, and she has eliminated her coumadin.

“She still has more weight to lose but we are way closer down the path to better health than ever before. The weight loss would not have been possible without your help – you do make a difference.”

According to MayoClinic.com, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of men and women in the United States and “many forms of heart disease can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices and diet and exercise.”

The Diet-to-Go Low-Fat Traditional and Vegetarian Low-Fat meal plans meet the nutritional guidelines of the American Heart Association, American Dietetic Association and American Diabetes Association.
