Dr. Michael Greger is one of my heroes and continues to inspire
me. Why? Because he embodies personal integrity, values facts, and
is one of the kindest and smartest people I know. All of his
lecture fees and book royalties go to charity, including his
non-profit NutritionFacts.org, one of the most credible sources of
science-based nutrition. How Not to Diet is one of the best
books I've ever read on how to lose weight in sustainable ways that
enhance health. Highly recommended! --Dean Ornish, M.D.,
founder and president of the non-profit Preventive Medicine
Research Institute and author of UnDo It!
There is no doubt that if you wish to learn how extensive is the evidence supporting a whole food plant-based diet, read this book. Dr. Greger has mastered that knowledge base like no one else. --T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., professor emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University and author of The China Study
How Not to Diet is an encyclopedic tapestry of everything important and healthful for human nutrition. Walter Lippman once stated 'the touchstone of sanity is the truth.' Dr. Greger has created a monumental bastion of nutritional truth to lead our journey in eliminating chronic disease. --Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr. M.D., author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease
