How Could Someone So Fit like Bob Harper Have a Heart Attack?
Medical doctors tend to look at conventional risk factors to heart disease this includes:
- Abnormal Cholesterol
But wait! Bob harper was fit not overweight. He was the epitome of health. He was 51 years old, super-fit and the host of weight loss reality show The Biggest Loser. But he had a heart attack in New York during heart month!!!
Looking healthy is not good enough! Hypertension is a silent and abnormal cholesterol can happen with people any shape or size.
The Majority of Who have Heart Attacks and Strokes Occur Have Normal Cholesterol
That is why it is important to understand cholesterol. Understand that all cholesterol is not equal. More importantly statin drugs do not protect you from a heart attack.

The Majority of Heart Attacks Occur with Blockages That Are Less Than 50%
So even if Mr. Bob Harper went to the best cardiologist in the world more than likely he would have been given a clean bill of health. Why? He would have done an exercise treadmill test, and this will only show advanced stages of heart disease (80% blockages or more). Doctors would have looked at him and said nothing to worry about.
But heart disease can happen to anyone anytime. The best way I can say it is plaques can be small and they are like a pimple on your face. If the pimple (plaque) is well protected it will not cause any problems. The skin is tough over the plaque. Well if the skin is not tough protecting that pimple (plaque) it can explode. We have all had this before… the puss the blood. Well imagine this inside your artery. This can take a small blockage to a large blockage very quickly.
