Kathy Freston wasn't born a vegan. The bestselling author and renowned wellness expert actually grew up on chicken-fried steak and cheesy grits and loved nothing more than BBQ ribs and vanilla milkshakes. Not until her thirties did she embrace the lifestyle of a veganist-someone who eats a plant-based diet not just for their own personal well-being but for the whole web of benefits it brings to our ecosystem and beyond. Kathy's shift toward this new life was gradual-she leaned into it-but the impact was profound. Now Kathy shows us how to lean into the veganist life. Effortless weight loss, reversal of disease, environmental responsibility, spiritual awakening-these are just a few of the ten profound changes that can be achieved through a gentle switch in food choices.
Filled with compelling facts, stories of people who have improved their weight and health conditions as a result of making the switch, and Q&As with the leading medical researchers, Veganist concludes with a step-by-step practical guide to becoming a veganist, easily and gradually. It is an accessible, optimistic, and illuminating book that will change the way you eat forever. No less delicious, still hearty and satisfying-just better for you and for all.

"Freston's sincere but problematic argument for a vegan diet is made to sound manipulative as delivered by Karen White. Freston's information can be interesting, but her means for connecting her research to a platform for an exclusively vegan diet falls flat in places. White complicates matters with an emotionally laden delivery. A practical and subdued approach would have allowed the facts and ideas to stand for themselves. As a result, a book that has the potential to bring new demographics to the vegan lifestyle comes off as too much like propaganda for listeners to swallow. L.E. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
