Publisher Comments:

Kathy Freston wasn't born a vegan. The bestselling author and renowned wellness expert 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--someone who eats a plant-based diet not just for their own personal well-being, but for the whole web of benefits it brings to our ecosystem and beyond. Kathy's shift toward this new life was gradual--she leaned into it--but the impact was profound. Now Kathy shows us how to lean into the veganist life. Effortless weight loss, reversal of disease, environmental responsibility, spiritual awakening--these are just a few of the ten profound changes that can be achieved through a gentle switch in food choices.

Filled with compelling facts, stories of people who have improved their weight and health conditions 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 becoming a veganist…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.


From bestselling author Kathy Freston comes a fresh, upbeat look at how changing the way you eat can improve your health and the world around you.

Veganist is a great book full of solid information, anecdotes from real people, and workable solutions to the challenges of converting to a plant-based life style. Kathy Freston writes in a personable voice and backs up her talking points with facts from well respected researchers and activists. Veganist is a terrific resource to have in the pursuit of a healthier life!

I have been wanting to go vegan for some time, but just hadn't quite done it. Kathy's book really made the difference; all I had to do was drop eggs and salmon from my life. Her gentle but persuasive approach to vegan living was just what I needed. Each of her chapters are called promises, each guaranteed to catch your attention ("Your Body Will Find and Maintain Its Ideal Weight--Effortlessly" ; "You Will Radically Reduce Your Carbon Footprint and Do the Single Best Thing You Can Do for the Environment"). Each is filled with information to help you understand what veganism can do for you and your health and for the planet. She gives great advice on how to start (lean into a plant-based diet at your own pace). Her joy and enthusiasm is so contagious! All this from a lovely Southern lady who used to love chicken-fried steak and barbecued ribs.
