Review Quotes



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
