Editorial Reviews

Review

Dr John McDougall has been a pioneer in this field of food and health for decades and has contributed much. This new book of his and his wife, Mary, is one more example of what he stands for. His candor says it all. Enjoy the read. (T. COLIN CAMPBELL, Ph.D., coauthor of The China Study)

A pioneer in plant based nutrition, John McDougall crystallizes the flaws of low carbohydrate and Paleo disease producing diets and solidifies the scientifically proven health producing, disease reversal power of whole food plant based nutrition in his new book, The Healthiest Diet on the Planet. (CALDWELL ESSELSTYN, MD, author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease)

John and Mary at their best: John presents the accumulating science in favor of “foods-as-grown” for the prevention, arrest and reversal of chronic diseases, for planetary survival and for compassion. He does it with clarity, with punch, and he scores. A homerun! (HANS DIEHL, DrHSc, MPH Clinical Professor of Preventive Medicine, Loma Linda University ; Founder of CHIP, Bestselling author)

A must-have on the shelf of every person who cares about their health, longevity, and happiness. McDougall’s Healthiest Diet on the Planet just makes sense and offers the only solution to a complex problem. (JOHN P. MACKEY, Co-founder and Co-CEO of Whole Foods Market)

Dr. McDougall has created a much-needed book that celebrates why the foods we love the most are also the best for us. With this smartly illustrated guide, he makes it easy for us to know what to eat and what not to eat--and make the healthiest food delicious. (DAN BUETTNER, National Geographic Fellow and New York Times Best Selling Author of The Blue Zones Solution: Eating and Living Like the World's Healthiest People)

Dr. John McDougall is one of the great pioneers of the evidence-based nutrition movement. The Healthiest Diet on the Planet lays out the core elements of healthy eating in the easiest possible terms to understand. (MICHAEL GREGER, MD FACLM, Founder of http://nutritionfacts.org/)

From the Back Cover

From Almond French Toast to Cheezy Baked Macaroni, from Garden Wraps to Berry Sorbet—Eat the Delicious Foods You Love and Get Healthy.

For years we’ve been told that a healthy diet features piles of meat, poultry, and fish, while diets loaded with carbs and high in starch should be avoided at all costs.

But what if this was all wrong? What if everything we’ve been told about diet and nutrition—everything we’ve been told about food—is completely backwards?

Animal fats and proteins are high in calories and cholesterol, which too often leave us hungry and unsatisfied, a dangerous recipe for overeating and gaining weight. We’re eating the wrong kinds of food and, as a result, we’re all getting fat and sick one meal at a time.

The truth is only complex carbohydrates like whole grains, legumes, root vegetables, and other starch-rich foods can provide your body with the necessary essential nutrients that satisfy your appetite while simultaneously keeping you happy, healthy, and in the best shape of your life.

In The Healthiest Diet on the Planet, internationally renowned expert on nutrition and bestselling author Dr. John McDougall invites us to reclaim our health simply by eating the foods we’ve always loved but were told to never eat. This scientifically proven approach not only encourages us to eat the foods we crave and enjoy, but also has helped hundreds of thousands of people lose unwanted weight, discover more energy, and live longer and stronger. By enjoying nutritious starches, fruits, and vegetables, we can get healthy one satisfying meal at a time. Dr. McDougall offers a delicious, easy-to-follow, and proven guide that lets us enjoy the foods we love again—and, in the process, prevent disease and help reverse aging.

Featuring a unique color picture book that shows us exactly what we should and shouldn’t eat, and over sixty mouth-watering recipes, The Healthiest Diet on the Planet is the easiest way to look great, feel better, and forever change the way we think about health and nutrition.
