Keep your diet healthy. Stay away from animal fat (meat, dairy products). If you have to have them, make it for a special occasion. Eat lots of vegetables. Try taking CoQ10 daily.
Keep exercising and getting the heat muscle working hard to push all the blood through it. This will help with stress.
In short, a good diet, exercise and a more laid back attitude towards life will help your heart stay strong.

Cancers are getting better treatment. The problem with cancers is that there is a genetic component to many of them, and that genetic component is not going to go away by itself. Many cancers are caused by known hazards such as exposure to too much sunlight or to asbestos, and the best thing here is prevention. The new medical cocktails for HIV is keeping people alive and functioning for decades. Here too there seems to be some genetic susceptibility, and the best course of action is condoms, which many men still refuse to use. Immunizations have had huge success.
John Howard, Prime Minister of Australia walks every day. Unfortunately for the Labour party that means that he is as healthy as an ox.
Find a nice beach somewhere and stroll away at sunset with someone you love. Take up fishing. Golf phew. No wonder you had a blocked artery.... stressful game.

It sounds like you are on the right track:
dont complain abdout what you dont have , focus on what you have( it looks like you already do that)
take it easy, pamper yourself
have your cholesterol checked
get a massage
Have a romanitc night
dont get stressed
keep your check ups regular with your family doctor
Enjoy family time
Life is short and you have to live to the fullest, because none of us know what is around the corner for us. It sounds like you got a whisper of warning and you are taking the steps to do everything right! You should give yourself a pat on your back.
Have a nice day:) from someone who has been in your shoes

Diet and excercise should work. However, the doctors should probably have tried a STENT rather than a STUNT 2 years ago.

Originally Answered: What are some easy meals for a heart healthy diet?
Found this website that lists many of the diet plans and have an outline of what the diet is. Many may have a free outline of meals for a week would be. Might start with the American Heart Association guidelines and diet plan to get use to what is out there. Personally, I lost some weight with the Special K program, have cereal for breakfast, a protein bar for lunch and your meal for the night with two small snacks one before lunch and one mid day. I don't have the two snacks, never that hungry for snacks. I have lost about 10 pounds in 2 months.
