I have named this book as the zero oil cookbook, and food for reversing heart disease. Let me explain these two terms to you.

The common belief is that without oil as a cooking media no good food can be created or cooked. Almost all households use oil (fat extract of many natural food items marketed by hundreds of oil companies) to prepare, cook and season spices when they prepare food for consumption. Some of the common names of these oils available in India are Saffola, Cornola, Dhara, Dalda, Sweekar, Sundrop, Gold winner, Sanola, Pstman, Mastan, Palmoil, and Sungold etc. Ghee is another Indian fat used popularly as a cooking medium derived from milk. The cooking methods described in this book do not use any kind of oil. That is why it is called zero oil. One must remember that use of these oils can be detrimental for our health as in the modern era we don not exercise or perform physical activates required to utilize these high calorie fatty items. We understand that some fat inside all natural and so called non – fatty items. We also do not recommend any milk product or extracts like cheese, butter, cream or margarine as they also contain very high amounts of oil.

Most of know and agree that it is the fat (in the form of cholesterol and triglycerides) that gets deposited inside the arteries of the heart (called coronary arteries) to cause one of the most common and dreadful diseases of mankind called Coronary Heart Disease. This disease can be called as the “disease of fat deposits” and the common man knows this disease as angina, ischaemia, heart attack, coronary thrombosis or heart stroke of MI (medical terms: coronary heart disease, coronary artery disease, ischaemic heart disease, myocardial infarction etc.). The food items described in this book will help not only in preventing further deposits of cholesterol and fat inside the heart tubes, but also removing or reversal of the deposits. The common belief that these blockage cannot be removed once formed, has been proved wrong by the scientific research carried out in the last one decade. The reversal of coronary blockages has been proved by using sophisticated techniques like quantitative angiography and PET scan (a test not yet available in India). The cardiologists and the latest textbooks of cardiology have now agreed that the blockages can be removed, as sufficient data is available to prove the same. This book is a step to guide people about the food part of total lifestyle changes required to reverse heart disease.

I will confess here that to reverse heart disease (the blocks that cause heart disease) requires a complete change in lifestyle including guided exercises, yoga, meditation, control of risk factors like overweight, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, abstinence from consumption of tobacco in any form and a complete guidance on stress management. However, food plays a major role and this modified food cooking system will be a major step towards reversal of heart disease.

Another fact that I would also like to highlight is that this book has been created for common people who do not have lot of knowledge about medical science or nutrition. To make them understand the book without difficulties and to make practical use of the methods I have tried purposefully to simplify (sometimes oversimplify) the hard – core medical information without sacrificing or distorting the scientific information as far as possible. The reader must understand that many times while calculating the calories an approximate estimation has to be carried out to avoid meticulous details, which may confuse the common people. If someone is interested in more accurate data for scientific purpose he or she should consult textbooks meant for dietitians and doctors.
