Dr Ornish and his wife offer a way to eat and live that is much more likely (and scientifically proven to be so) than taking long term medications to suppress chorines illness. Change the way you eat and live and change your health, weight, vitality and region youthful energy and brainpower. No way back once you give it a try!!!
Dean Ornish and his wife present his sound and scientifically proven "prescription" to reverse ill health. I'm not sick but I'm interested in staying that way. Good solid information in an easily readable format
Dean Ornish is a legend amongst WFPB advocates but this book was disappointing. The first half is worth a read but otherwise too many recipes (with nothing new). Too many pages relevant to US only (eg products & brands). Too much promotion of cornish.com (only needs to be mentioned once). Read 'How Not To Die' and 'Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease'. These two books are all you will ever need ... they changed my life.
Have been following Dr Ornish for years, and continue to be impressed by the sheer volume of studies that suggest that his low fat (and other) lifestyle changes approach have a wide range of benefits. Loads of recipes in this book, and chapters on yoga, meditation, exercise etc. Would definitely recommend to anyone experiencing Ill health or who wants to find out practical (and do-able) ways to avoid it.
I released 130 lbs on a whole foods plant based diet. For anyone starting on this journey I recommend this book first, then How Not to Die, then Proteinaholic, then Presto. Look them up. But then, get healthy.
