On my first visit, Dr. Clifton advised me to switch to a plant-based diet and told me that once I did, I would lose weight. More importantly, she said that my health would improve. Now, I have no need for the several drugs my previous doctors had me taking.
It took me about 2 weeks to adjust to this "new" way of - if you will pardon me - feeding my body. After that, I found it fairly easy and was amazed by how easily my weight dropped almost without effort. I also walked every day - and still do - and increased my distance every few days; My personal best is 5+ miles. (Yes, you do have to get off the couch and exercise!)
I think this book will help you to live a better, healthier life. My BP still needs regulating but at a smaller dose of medicine. NO MORE insulin shots or diabetic pills! I am almost 59 years old and have not felt this great in a couple of decades!
This book is great for someone just learning about plant-based eating and for people like me who sabotage themselves by giving in to cravings. It is motivational and encouraging. Dr. Clifton details her transition to plant-based eating, what she eats, and how to deal with eating out and with cravings. There are very helpful recipes sprinkled throughout the book and in the back of the book. There is additional information from very knowledgeable experts in this field.
I was fortunate to obtain the Kindle version when it was offered for free. For other than novels, I tend to be a "book" person because I find it easier to return to pages or sections that I want to read again when I have a book. I find myself wanting to revisit various sections of this book. For that reason, if I were trying to decide between the Kindle or paperback version, I would choose the paperback version of this book.
This book is inspiring for anyone who wants to change their lifestyle. I didn't realize this book was about plant based diet until I started reading it (I downloaded it for free) and that was a big plus for me.
And it had a nicely incorporated "how to" within the personal stories (which I found interesting)
In retrospect, I would have paid for this book.
It is worth it.
PS. The Kindle edition could use some tweaking, there were a few pages with extra tips that I was unable to read without zooming in, but it didn't take much away from the book.
Dr. Mary Clifton and Dr. Chelsea Clinton put together this wonderful book on the healthy benefits of a plant based diet. This diet has done wonders for me and hope you enjoy reading this book for a healthy lifestyle.
I highly recommend this book if you are new to plant based diets.
