In brief: Yes avoid toxic food
While ornish did prove that lifestyle interventions could reverse heart disease, he erroneously concluded that it was the low fat component of his program that did the trick.
Ornish employed various interventions including cigarette cessation, stress reduction and avoidance of toxic items in your diet. Avoid sugars, fried foods, vegatable oils like canola & soy, meats that are cured wth nitrates.
