  1. Dear Dr. Ali, first of all allow me to thank you for the immense contribution you are making to heal the world. Your generosity in sharing your knowledge without any agenda is remarkable and inspiring. I have resolved many health issues by virtue of eating healthy, losing close to 50 lbs (from 220 to 170, I am 6ft tall and 66 yrs on a med to small frame), and practicing IF/OMAD and Keto. I am also alternatively doing muscle training and olympic walking at 70% cap, 6 T a week. I still have maybe 10 lbs of belly fat to lose. I would like to implement HIIT in my routine but hesitate because I have a CAC score of 110 with diffuse calcifications throughout my coronary arteries, with the RCA having a 50-60% stenosis. I am taking D3 (10,000/d)/K2-MK7(500mcg/d) in the hopes of reversing CAD. Do you think it ill advised to do HIIT? Best regards,
