Publisher's Summary

The definitive guide to the optimum diet for health and wellness, from the founder of Whole Foods Market and the doctors of Forks over Knives.

The Whole Foods Diet simplifies the huge body of science, research, and advice that is available today and reveals the undeniable consensus: A whole foods, plant-based diet is the optimum diet for health and longevity. Standing on the shoulders of the Whole Foods Market brand and featuring an accessible 28-day program, delicious recipes, inspirational success stories, and a guilt-free approach to plant-based eating, The Whole Foods Diet is a life-affirming invitation to become a Whole Foodie: someone who loves to eat, loves to live, and loves to nourish themselves with nature's bounty. If Whole Foods Market is "shorthand for a food revolution" (The New Yorker), then The Whole Foods Diet will give that revolution its bible - the unequivocal truth about what to eat for a long, healthy, disease-free life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "The Lifesaving Plan for Health and Longevity"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes it has the true story of Mackeys personal positions as compared to the Whole foods store's range of foods...in other words it reveals that he personally (Mackey) prefers a vegan diet with fresh foods...And that he (Mackey) appreciated the China Study and T Colin Campbell. I am fully commited to his work even more now because of this one book.
    Thank you for sharing your story and your personal insights

    Story
    "Normal to Fit & Feeling Amazing at 48"
    What did you love best about The Whole Foods Diet?

    I love love love this book. I've played with going Vegan or Vegetarian for years but never stuck with it. This is the first book to change my thinking on food. It's difficult trying to figure out what is REALLY good for us and what is not. This book simplifies the difference between what are healthy whole foods and what are processed foods. I spend less money, eat healthy whole foods, have more energy, and eat all day. It makes perfect sense to me now and I feel better than ever at 48 yr old.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Whole Foods Diet?

    The information on the 8 Essential Foods to eat everyday.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Relieved that I do NOT have to get protein from an animal. Excited to learn how to eat legumes, fruits, vegetables, and 1300+ Vegan plant based foods.


    Any additional comments?

    I found out about this book from an Interview John Mackey (Whole Foods founder) did with the "Mind Body Green" podcast. Highly recommend listening to this interview.

    Story
    "Rational approach to eating"

    Mackey is a vegan libertarian. This means he doesn't eat meat but you can. He admits there's no long term science based evidence approving of his vegan choice. In sum, eat 10% meat products but demand that industrial meat produces provide the animals with a life that isn't a short period of hellish suffering before death.

    Story
    "Vegan propaganda"

    Starts out with a reasonable premise and then quickly ratchets up the vegan propaganda. Eating animal products is compared to slavery and genocide. Hard to take the authors seriously at that point.
