Publisher's Summary

High in calories and cholesterol, animal fats and proteins too often leave you hungry and lead to overeating and weight gain. They are often the root causes of a host of avoidable health problems - from indigestion, ulcers, and constipation to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. On the other hand, complex carbohydrates like whole grains, legumes, tubers, and other starches provide your body with essential proteins and nutrients that satisfy the appetite while simultaneously fighting illness. But Americans eat far too few calories from carbohydrates - only about 40 percent, according to Dr. John McDougall, internationally renowned expert on nutrition and health, featured on the documentary Forks Over Knives.

In this book, McDougall takes on the propaganda machines pushing dangerous, high-fat fad diets and cuts through the smoke and mirrors of the diet industry. He offers a clear, proven guide to what we should and shouldn't eat to prevent disease, slow the aging process, improve our physical fitness, be kind to the environment, and be our most attractive selves.

Featuring mouth-watering, easy-to-follow recipes, The Healthiest Diet on the Planet will help you look great, feel better, and forever change the way you think about health and nutrition.

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

Get Book, and PDF's

This book was an interesting listener, and I think everyone should have it. However, this book like his Starch Solution is doubled with the PDF that he attaches. Another great book, easy to understand and apply.

Meh....

After just reading "how not to die," a very good read about vegan and health improvement, I found this audio book lacking in substance and backup. With all due respect for all of the great work this author has accomplished, the book seemed self-glorifying, and even a bit arrogant. Also, lots of the real "diet" material for this book is in "the accompanying PDF...." I could've just read that. Lots of wasted time dissing other diets too... oh well, at least it was short. Hmmmm.

Good Health in a nutshell

The narrator has a great voice. excellent reading and emphasis.

The information given in this book is pretty concise. I appreciate learning of Dr McDougall's experience early in his life and career, as well. I look forward to ordering the book and trying some of those recipes!
