I had open heart surgery
Hi! This is Barb, I have been on this site off and on since last fall. I've been on Raw Food Diet on and off it since then too. I really thought my diet wasn't too bad even when off Raw, but boy was I wrong. The problem has been that the damage was already done, and I sure have along way to go.
Tuesday, Nov. 18th, 2008, I underwent open heart surgery, on four clogged arteries.
My whole family has a history of heart disease, hypertension and high cholesterol, now I have walked in their footsteps and it is not fun. I just got home from the hospital last night. I'm now on a diet restricted on sugar, salt and a low fat diet. So, I have come back to Raw Food Talk, hoping this is the diet where I will not have to undergo future surgeries, because I really want a future. My husband has been wonderful, and he is willing to his diet along with me. He and I are more of a "team" now than ever. This is the place where I know I'll get the encouragement I will need to turn the Raw Food diet into a lifestyle, for the both of us.
