1. Whole-grain bread. Research shows that people who follow a weight-loss program incorporating whole-grain breads, cereals, and other foods lose more body fat from the abdominal area than those who eat only refined-grain foods, like white bread and rice. 2. Low-fat milk and yogurt. Scientists have found that the more calcium in fat cells, the more fat those cells will burn. In one study, two groups of overweight mice were put on a restricted-calorie diet, but one also got calcium supplements. The no-calcium mice lost 8 percent of their body fat, compared to 42 percent among the mice that did get calcium. 3. Lean protein. Good sources of protein, such as lean meats, eggs, and beans, help keep your blood sugar stable. The result you will feel full longer and get a boost in energy and that will help you burn more belly fat. Requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication.

Dear lybrateuser, - To prevent a heart attack you have to follow a healthy lifestyle including a well balanced diet containing more of fibrous foods like fruits & vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, sprouts, have low fat milk & milk products, lean meats, nuts - avoid fried, processed & junk foods & foods containing saturated & trans fats - reduce stress by exercising regularly, playing games, yoga, meditation, deep breathing - sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night - instead of puri have wholewheat or multi grain chapatis.

Once you are proven to have Coronary Artery Disease and have undergone stenting then you need these medications lifelong. You are only on a small dose of statin and I would suggest you continue that. You are on two blood thinners currently which could be cut down to a single agent. Please get a review from Cardiologist.
