Depends on: Why you had the cardiac arrest. If due to coronary artery disease, you should avoid simple carbs and get plenty of aerobic exercise. Look at lowglycemicindex.Com. Also avoid caffeine and stimulants. If another cause, like hocm, valve disease, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia or some other cause, look to treat the underlying cause first.
