Short Synopsis
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.

Full Synopsis
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.

"Karen White's narration is crisp, well-paced and pleasantly cheerful. Her conversational and encouraging delivery works to personalize the book's stories and arguments---all the while eschewing any hint of sanctimony." Publishers Weekly Audio Review

"Audie Award nominee Karen White delivers an excellent reading of the material, and the production quality of this audio is high." ---Library Journal Audio Review

"For the novice, this book offers a gentle, guilt-free path to a meatless (or even, as Freston says, "vegan-ish") life." ---Publishers Weekly
