Summary

Twelve-time New York Times best-selling Author Dr Mark Hyman presents his unique pegan diet - including meal plans, recipes and shopping lists.

For decades, the diet wars have pitted advocates for the low-carb, high-fat paleo diet against advocates of the exclusively plant-based vegan diet and dozens of other diets, leaving most of us bewildered and confused. 

For those of us on the sidelines, trying to figure out which approach is best has been nearly impossible - both extreme diets have unique benefits and drawbacks. But how can it be, we've asked desperately, that our only options are bacon and butter three times a day or endless kale salads? How do we eat to reverse disease and increase optimal health, longevity and performance? How do we eat to reverse climate change? There must be a better way!

Fortunately, there is. With The Pegan Diet, a food is medicine approach, Mark Hyman explains how to take the best aspects of the paleo diet (good fats, limited refined carbs, limited sugar) and combine them with the vegan diet (lots and lots of fresh, healthy veggies) to create a delicious diet that is not only good for your brain and your body but also good for the planet.

Featuring 30 recipes and plenty of infographics illustrating the concepts, The Pegan Diet offers a balanced and easy-to-follow approach to eating that will help you get and stay fit, healthy, focused and happy for life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Very interesting, but difficult to digest on audio

I found the book really fascinating, and contains lots of useful advice; but alot of this information comes in lists and big blocks of ingredients or chemicals that are difficult to follow as an audio book. Would definitely recommend this book, but probably best as a physical, paper book.

Avoid

It’s unbelievable you can take two diets name paleo and vegan make up a word from both words and make a book about it , you won’t learn anything from this book if you’ve studied the paleo diet or vegan diet apart from anyone can create a book without it being assessed before it’s on sale , wish I could get my money back

Lots of insights

There’s much more to know than fats, carbs and protein that much other advice is based on. Haven’t felt this empowered in years.
