Says Dr. Sabatino: “Sedentary behavior has become a normal part of aging in our culture. As a result, we continue to get fatter. Consistent aerobic activity like walking (30 minutes, 4 to 5 times a week), decreases fat levels in the body and increases oxygen supply to the heart and brain, as well as the production of antioxidant enzymes.”
John Nowakowski, chef at the Regency Health Resort & Spa became interested in 'heart-healthy' cuisine to save his own heart. When John began his career at age 15, he was a short-order cook in a steak and lobster house. He progressed quickly and by the age of 24 had become the youngest executive chef in the Marriott corporation. 'But by the time I was 30', said John, 'I started getting chest pains - probably from my diet and the stress of working 16 hours a day.' Two years later, John left his corporate job and began working at a restaurant in Miami where he created a 'heart-healthy' cuisine, which eventually led to his joining the Regency. 'After I quit my old job and began working at the Regency,' said John, 'my health improved tremendously, which I attribute to less stress, a shorter work day, and a vegetarian diet.'
This is echoed by Dr. Frank Sabatino: “A fruit, vegetable & complex starch based vegetarian diet provides the most protection against degeneration and aging. This nutritional approach provides high fiber, low saturated fat and protein, and the greatest concentration of antioxidants (Vitamins C and E, beta carotene, etc.) and phytonutrients (chemicals isolated in plant foods that have been shown to offer the best protection against a variety of degenerative diseases and cancers).”
The closest airport is Ft. Lauderdale. However, many guests fly in to Miami.
