Joe, I am reading your book Positive Mind, Healthy Heart and am finding it so inspiring. Our son had open heart surgery at 30 and lived to tell about it and change his career from an engineer to a Doctor. My sister, Meg Penalver gave it to me. We have some connection, I think my sister Ida Karlin, who passed away from cancer about 20 years ago knew you and your family. Thank you for writing the book and helping me get on the right track and changing my attitude to a more positive one. Edna Schilter Crawford

… lately there has been a craze for coconut oil - they seem to say its the best thing since sliced bread and yet in your book you state that it is a saturated fat and should be avoided. i am confused about the differences in opinion. How do we know the truth and which opinion is the right one? I love pastas and breads but today we hear it is the reason we are fat. Have you changed your opinion on that at all since your 1994 edition of Don't Eat Your Heart Out ? Or do you still stand firm that a healthy diet consists of 6-8 servings of complex carbs ? I just don't know who to believe anymore and i hate being confused !

Hi Joe. My husband had a heart attack and I got your book "Don't Eat Your Heart Out" from the hospital (North Shore LIJ in NY). He quit smoking and i am reading your book to learn how to cook better for him. My question is this... I have the 1994 edition. Do you still today feel the same about the carbohydrate section. It seems the whole country is telling us we need to not eat carbs. Bread is bad. Pasta is bad. I am Italian and love those things. I need to lose 25 lbs since i hit menopause and I just want to know do you today still believe in the food pyramid of 6-8 servings of complex carbohydrates ? (sometimes with all the differences of opinion out there i feel so confused)
