I am a 42 year old wife and mother of three. I have made it my mission to learn as much as I can about health and fitness, because 11 years ago, at the age of 31, I had a heart attack. I was not overweight, but I smoked and I definitely had an awful diet. I want to live a long, healthy life and I hope to help as many people as I can along the way! Lori Appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show twice, and now has made it her mission to help women combat heart disease.
