BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

In Dr. Neal Barnard’s The 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.

Neal Barnard, MD, is the founder and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and author of fifteen health and nutrition books.

Robyn Webb, MS, is the food editor of the ADA’s Diabetes Forecast magazine.

My wife and I have been on this basic vegan diet since March, 2010 and my doctor can not believe my results. I have lost weight, cholesterol is 57, by blood sugar is around 105 - 110. It is a true healthy way to eat and feel great.
