5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life!
By Beth S on September 25, 2016
I bought this book in January 2016, after hearing an interview with Dr. Greger on a podcast. At first I found it hard to read, but not because it difficult or confusing, but because it was changing everything I thought I knew about food. I had lost 45 lbs already by eating "healthier."

I stopped reading about 1/3 way through and then continued my "healthy lifestyle." This included lots of prepackaged "health" foods and shakes. Lots of sugar and oil too.

In March of 2016 I started to get a rash on my face. Psoriasis. I've never had it before but it quickly spread to other parts of my body. By May 2016 I was miserable with my rash and still sitting at 204 lbs, despite my healthy lifestyle and consuming 1500 calories a day.

I decided something must be going on in my body, why was it attacking itself? Why wouldn't my psoriasis clear up, despite the creams my doctor prescribed?
I went back and started the book "How Not to Die" again in late May 2016. By Mid June I had fully adopted his diet and now in September 2016 I will never look back. I'm down 30 more lbs, my skin is finally clearing up, and I have so much energy!
This book has changed my life and my only wish is it cost less so I could buy a copy for all of my friends!

Update: 7/2017
I've been eating this way for a year now and I could never go back. I'm 36 and feel better than I ever did in my 20's. I'm down over 50lbs in a year- see update pic below!
