If you are newly diagnosed with chronic disease such as heart or diabetes or, you know nothing about Whole Food Plant Based, low fat diet, you do DO NOT need to buy this book. Dean Ornish is one of the gurus who has been around for many years and this book is rehash of much of his previous info. Additionally, with a bit of research the information can be found on the Internet. One positive includes having nutritional info for each recipe though the recipes are mundane. There aren’t any options for Instant Pot use. If you want the book save your money and get it at your local library or as stated earlier, do your own research on one of the many WFPB websites. Stay with those that are non-fat for cooking.
Here's there great advice for reversing chronic diseases: Eat well, Exercise, reduce stress, and love more. Wow. Who would have thought. That's pretty much the essence of this book. Not exactly revolutionary thinking and definitely not worth buying.
I thought I would of really got an outline, much different from what's in the book. Ive been a vegan for over 20 years I follow a clean diet, I have a little salmon now & then. Im in my seventies. Lets say most of what's in the book I've been doing. As for the recipes I don't eat Pasta or Tofu, and they weren't all that Wanted to return the book but when I checked the return window was closed, unfortunately. Wish that I could get my money back
Good information but the book is small print, many pages long, heavy, with lots of duplication. With better editing it would have been so much easier as a reference book. Some very good recipes. Big omission, chronic kidney disease is a common issue and dietary choices go a long way to slow it but this book has no mention of it. It talks about kidney stones but that has nothing to do with CKD.
