To me this sounds VERY risky.  My husband had ONE artery at the back of the heart that had a 70% blockage in a SMALL section and he had a heart attack one month ago.  First of all I would see your physician but secondly and most importantly do a complete radical diet change and add exercise.  I'm no authority but I have researched this allot.  We already have a good diet, low in salt, bad fats and we walk everyday.  The doctors said if we DIDN'T his heart attack may have been fatal.
