Here is a summary of the strategy from Dr Davis's blog.

The five most powerful heart disease prevention strategies
from Heart Scan Blog by Dr. William Davis

You've seen such lists before: 5 steps to prevent heart disease or some such thing. These lists usually say things like "cut your saturated fat," eat a "balanced diet" (whatever the heck that means), exercise, and don't smoke.

I would offer a different list. You already know that smoking is a supremely idiotic habit, so I won't repeat that. Here are the 5 most important strategies I know of that help you prevent heart disease and heart attack:

1) Eliminate wheat from the diet
2) Achieve a desirable 25-hydroxy vitamin D level
3) Supplement omega-3 fatty acids from fish
4) Normalize thyroid function
5) Make exercise fun
Note what is not on the list: cut your fat, eat more "healthy whole grains," take a cholesterol drug, take aspirin. That's the list you'd follow if you feel your hospital needs your $100,000 contribution, otherwise known as coronary bypass surgery.
