In Dr. Neal Barnard’s Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook, the country’s leading diabetes team weighs in on America’s hottest dietary trend. The cookbook is based on a landmark two-year study conducted by Dr. Barnard, which showed that a vegan diet more effectively controls type 2 diabetes. In fact, it`s also beneficial for weight loss, the reversal of heart disease, and the improvement of many other conditions. Dr. Barnard and nutritionist Robyn Webb now offer easy, delicious meals to improve your health.
Featuring 125 flavorful recipes, readers will find all-occasion dishes that use familiar ingredients and require minimal effort. All recipes are free of animal products, low in fat, and contain a low-to-moderate glycemic index.
Barnard and Webb explain how diet changes can have such dramatic health effects and provide simple ways to get started. With convenient menus, scientifically proven advice, and inspiring stories from real people who have used Barnard’s recommendations to turn their health around, there’s no better cookbook to help you eat well and feel great.

4 Stars Surprisingly good lower fat vegan recipes
I have to admit that I was a bit put off by the cover. But I’m always on the look-out for lower fat vegan recipes. This book delivers just that. I didn’t really need the background information, I’m already vegan. But it was a good reinforcement. I have really enjoyed the recipes I’ve tried so far. I do modify them, but I modify almost everything. They also don’t require many ’specialty’ ingredients, which is nice. My recommendation would be to put a nice picture of a finished recipe on the cover since that’s my favorite part of the book. Although I do ‘get’ that they’re trying to promote the healthy part. I would love to see more recipes from the co-author.
5 Stars Very interesting and informative book
I read some part of this book everyday and I have tryed the recipes and they are very good some need a little more flavor but that is easy to fix..
I also ordered this book for my sister and can’t wait to hear what she thinks of it.
5 Stars It worked for me.
I’ve used the McDugall plan for 5 years. This author is very similar in terms of do’s and don’ts but gives a far more understandable rationale as to why certain techniques work. Fat causes diabetes– not sugar. It is nicely explained and easy to understand. If you want to take charge of your life, feel better about yourself, reverse diabetes and heart disease, this is the book for you. Be prepared for criticism from the so called “people who are concerned.” But adopt the practices in this book and you will feel better, and I’m convinced add 10 years to your life.
Heart disease runs in my family, but you can change your numbers: bp & lipid numbers drastically and rapidly if you choose. I’m in a pair of 32 skinny jeans formerly 36 as I tap this out and have lost over 30 pounds.
Follow the script and you can too. No expensive meal packets to buy, just lots of good honest thinking, techniques that work.
5 Stars DELICIOUS!
How can any dish taste great without cheese? You would be surprised and delighted with the offerings from authors Barnard and Webb.
