In fact, in 6 easy steps you can revitalize your life - and cardiovascular health - in ways you never thought possible. Once you get started you’ll automatically begin to...

How a Heart Surgeon ALMOST
Ended Up on the Operating Table

I’m Dr. Frederic J. Vagnini, M.D., but you can call me Doctor V. That’s how most of my patients here at the Heart, Diabetes & Weight Loss Centers in New York address me.


Before opening my center I spent 25 years as a heart, lung and blood vessel surgeon at the North Shore University Hospital Cornell Division and other respected hospitals.


During that time I operated on thousands of people with cardiovascular issues. Some of these patients were so diseased I often wondered how they could have been walking around in the first place.


But while I was focused on my patients, guess what happened to me?


I became obese.


My weight reached an alarming 325 pounds. My blood pressure shot up, my triglycerides went through the roof and I even had high blood sugar.


I was a heart attack waiting to happen and just an inch short of being in the same position that most of my heart patients were in - lying flat out on an operating table.


I knew I had to turn things around before disaster struck, and I had to do it quickly.


For months I poured over medical studies, journals and other clinical research to find a natural solution to my problem. I felt like I was back in med school cramming for finals, but this time my entire life depended upon getting it right.


And thank goodness, I did get it right.


With some very simple changes I lost over 100 pounds. My blood pressure and triglycerides both returned to acceptable levels. And my blood sugar and insulin also fell back into balance. Today I feel as healthy as I did when I was in my 20’s.


Everything I’ve learned - both from my days as a respected heart surgeon and through my own experience - is the basis for the program I use at my Heart, Diabetes and Weight Loss Centers of New York.


My patients love it. They say “Wow, Doctor V, no other doctor has ever done this before.” When they follow through with my program their results are often quite amazing - sometimes even miraculous.


“When I first went to see Dr. Vagnini I was obviously progressing in the wrong direction. I weighed 329 pounds, I had high blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides. Now I’m weighing in at 264, so I’ve lost 65 pounds in about six months. That’s about 10 inches off my waist. My blood pressure is almost perfect, and my cholesterol and triglycerides are now in the acceptable range. It’s a major feat and I owe it all to Dr. V’s health protocol.” ~ Frank M.


Now you can get the same positive results as my patients - without the hassle of flying to my center in New York.

The TRUE Predictor of Heart Disease

Before I share the details of my program with you, there’s something you should know about. It’s a link that most doctors don’t know... and nearly all cardiologists miss.


That’s bad news, because about two-thirds of people who experience heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease have this risk factor in common. And it may be the one, single thing that could save your life.


Heart AttackYou see, there’s a natural compound in your body that can become toxic to all of your organs. Excess levels of it damage LDL cholesterol and cause your triglycerides to rise. It increases your risk of stroke, heart attack and obesity... and puts you squarely in danger of becoming diabetic.


It’s exactly what happened to me back when I became obese.


At the time I was focused on my weight. I knew those extra pounds placed me at greater risk for cardiovascular problems. Just as worrisome were my high levels of triglycerides. As a heart surgeon, I immediately understood the impact these fatty lipids could have on my cardiovascular health.


I was also troubled that my blood sugar was high, indicating that I was pre-diabetic. But at the time that seemed the least of my worries.


Boy was I wrong!


It turns out that all of those excess pounds and deadly triglycerides were a direct result of too much sugar and insulin raging through my bloodstream.


Despite my extensive knowledge and training in cardiovascular surgery, blood sugar (glucose) had never been introduced into the equation. That’s a topic saved for the internal medicine docs.


And that’s where the problem lies. Even if you’ve been to a cardiac specialist, he’s more interested in your cholesterol, triglycerides and cardiogram. He doesn’t care about your blood sugar. He’s never been trained in the management of glucose and diabetes... and probably has no idea of the risk blood sugar poses to your heart health.


As a result you are never being checked for the most important risk factor of allâ ¬¦ abnormal blood glucose levels.


I call it the cardio-glucose connection, and I’m not the only one noticing this problem. Today there is more documentation and scientific research than ever before linking cardiovascular risk to undiagnosed blood glucose abnormalities.


For example, not long ago researchers in Sweden took a look at hospital patients admitted with heart attacks. These patients had never been diagnosed as diabetic or pre-diabetic. When glucose screens were run, it was discovered that 35 percent of the patients had impaired glucose (pre-diabetes.) And an additional 31 percent had undiagnosed diabetes.2


Similar results were found in patients who suffered strokes. In one study, more than two-thirds of stroke patients had impaired glucose tolerance and previously unrecognized diabetes.3


The message here is clear. If you have a heart attack or stroke, chances are about 2 out of 3 that you have undiagnosed diabetes or glucose intolerance.


The good news is that with my plan you can regain control of your blood sugar and heart health by making effortless changes in your life. It’s called The Heart Surgeon’s Secret to a Healthy Heart: Discover Why Most Cardiologists are Dead Wrong... And What You Can Do Immediately to Protect Your Heart Health.


When you embrace the 6 steps in The Heart Surgeon’s Secret to a Healthy Heart, you’ll automatically begin dropping pounds, feeling healthier and be able to stop worrying about your blood sugar levels and cardiovascular health.


I did it. A countless number of my patients have done it. And you can, too.


The first two steps are simple. First, it’s important to recognize your risk. Then, if you have uncontrolled diabetes, blood glucose abnormalities or life-threatening cardiovascular issues, it’s critical to begin standard medical treatment immediately.


After that, it’s entirely up to you to take control and reverse your condition. And you can do it.


It’s just as crucial to prevent these diseases before they ever have the chance to get started. That’s the great thing about The Heart Surgeon’s Secret to a Healthy Heart. It’s both a preventive and therapeutic program. Plus, it’s delivered right to your email box in electronic form so you can get started right away.


So whether you’re just beginning to show symptoms of underlying glucose problems and heart disease - or if you’re already diabetic or suffered your first stroke or heart attack - it can work for you.

Eat Your Way to Good Health...
WITHOUT Sacrifice

Once you get into the program you’ll find out how the foods you eat, the activities you engage in and your stress levels all play a role in your health. You’ll also learn about critical nutrients that can help strengthen your heart, regulate your blood sugar and help shed those unwanted pounds.


For example, in step 3 you’ll be able to...


Family DinnerIndulge in a glass of wine at dinner. It’s loaded with a nutrient called resveratrol, which has been shown to protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Studies show that it can even have a positive effect on reducing belly fat.


Reduce your risk of heart disease by up to 40 percent with this natural heart-healthy oil.4 You can use it to make all of your favorite dishes, salad dressings and marinades. You’ll also find it in abundance in a tasty little delicacy you can use as a snack or garnish.


Discover which 4 foods are guaranteed to pack on the pounds and zap your energy. When you cut this deadly quartet from your diet you’ll not only notice it on the scale. You’ll also gain better control over your blood sugar and say goodbye to fatigue.


Enjoy these tasty vegetables that reduce your risk of diabetes by 14 percent.5 You don’t have just one or two to choose from. There are a large number of veggies in this category, and you’re bound to find some of your favorites


Learn which foods make your blood sugar skyrocket, damage your heart health and pack on the pounds. You’ll also discover how you can easily replace them with delicious meals and snacks that fill you up quickly. It’s a simple, easy-to-use eating plan that includes many of your favorite foods. I promise you won’t feel like you’re being cheated!


Find out how to identify this killer fat which is often hidden in your food. Manufacturer’s sneak it in, thinking you won’t notice. It’s associated with higher LDL cholesterol, arterial inflammation and heart attack risk.6 7 But if you know what to look for, you can avoid this lethal fatty acid.


Discover which fish are the healthiest - and how some can harm your health. Seafood is loaded with protein and healthy fats that fuel your brain, your heart and improve glucose function. But certain types of fish can do more harm than good. I’ll tell you what to watch for, and how to avoid it.


I don’t even mind a little lean, red meat in my patient’s diets, particularly those patients who have good or normal cholesterol and triglyceride levels. It’s a natural source of protein and, after all, who doesn’t enjoy a steak every now and then?


Benefits of Getting Enough Protein in Your Diet

  • Shed pounds. Proteins help ramp up your metabolism, improve thermogenesis (fat burning) and keep you full, longer.

  • Regulate blood glucose. Foods that are high in protein have a positive effect on insulin sensitivity and blood glucose compared to high carbohydrate foods. This is good news for diabetics and anyone experience blood glucose abnormalities.

  • Improve your heart health. When researchers compared the benefits of a high carbohydrate diet, a high fat diet and a high protein diet, the protein diet had the most sustained results. Participants showed an overall reduction in weight, waist circumference, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. In the end, the authors recommended a reduced carbohydrate, high protein diet to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.*

In The Heart Surgeonâ ¬!"s Secret to a Healthy Heart, I'll tell you about the five best sources of protein so you can get all of the benefits from this natural building block.

Avoid Becoming Old, Sick and Tired

The Heart Surgeon’s Secret to a Healthy Heart isn’t just about making the right food choices. It’s a complete program in electronic format so you have immediate access to it. It’s filled with a straightforward, proven plan to help you reduce your blood glucose, drop weight and protect your heart health.


Exercise plays an important role but I’ve got to admit... most of my patients hate hearing that word.


I can understand why. They work full-time jobs. Some of them have kids or ailing parents that keep them on their toes. Almost all of them have busy schedules. They want to get some activity in, but often can’t find the time.


Then there are those patients who are overweight, haven’t worked out in years or suffer joint problems. For these individuals, the concept of exercise doesn’t even enter the picture anymore.


Does any of this sound like you? If so, don’t worry. Exercise doesn’t have to be a grueling experience.


In step 4 you’ll find all kinds of exercises you can get started with. None of them require going to the gym if you don’t want to. And they are a lot more fun than running on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike for an hour at a time.


Better yet, they’re easy to do and can take as little as 12 minutes a day to complete.

Soothe Your Thoughts to
Conquer Heart Disease and Diabetes

Did you know that the more stressed you are, the more likely you are to have a heart attack? In a study that followed 24,767 people in 52 nations, those who experienced more stress were also more likely to suffer a heart attack.


There is also a link between stress and diabetes.8


A Swedish study that monitored 5,200 adults for 8-10 years showed that people with high emotional stress were twice as likely to develop pre-diabetes and men were three times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.9


So ridding yourself of stress is just as important as exercise and diet when it comes to protecting your heart and your long-term health.


In The Heart Surgeon’s Secret to a Healthy Heart you’ll get 35 stress-busting tips to help you say goodbye to tension and strain.
