Ve•gan•ist (vee guhn ist)
n. 1. Someone who looks closely at all of the implications of their food choices and chooses to lean into a plant-based diet;
2. Progress, not perfection.
In each of her widely acclaimed, bestselling books, Kathy Freston has been an empowering and friendly guide to a healthier, happier, and richer life. Now she gives us a book about our food, our health, and our environment that is unlike any other in its mes sage. It is a book about making a choice—a choice that has no downside.
At the heart of Veganist is Freston’s belief that by moving gradually toward a whole foods, plant-based diet, we will lose weight, heal our bodies from disease, and start making the world a more peaceful and livable place. It’s about leaning into a healthy lifestyle simply by tweaking our very favorite meals so that they are delicious and nutritious versions of the things we already love.
Freston herself actually grew up on chicken-fried steak and cheesy grits, and loved nothing more than BBQ ribs and vanilla milkshakes. Not until her thirties did she embrace the lifestyle of a veganist— a word she landed on to describe someone who looks closely at all the implications of his or her food choices. Freston’s shift toward this new life was gradual, but the impact was profoundly positive. And she’s not alone; this is a trend that is gaining enormous momentum.
In Veganist, Freston gives readers ten game-changing promises that will result from this gentle switch in food choices, including effortless weight loss and maintenance; greatly lowered risk of, and potentially even reversal of, major diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease; increased life expectan cy and quality of life; avoidance of food poisoning and viruses; both short-term and long-term money savings; help to feed the global poor; reduction of global warming; diminished animal suffering; and increased spiritual awareness and personal growth.
Filled with compelling facts, stories of people who have improved their weight and health condition as a result of making the switch, and Q&As with the leading medical researchers, Veganist concludes with a step-by-step practical guide to getting healthy and balanced… easily and gradually. It is an accessible, optimistic, and illuminating book that will change the way you eat forever. No less delicious, still hearty and satisfying—just better for you and for all.
