Discover the benefits of "eating your medicine" with twelve-time New York Times bestselling author Mark Hyman, MD's unique Pegan diet, "a masterpiece on food and health" (William Li, author of Eat to Beat Disease).
What do you get when you combine the best of paleo with the best of vegan? Pegan! 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 optimize 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
's food-is-medicine approach, Mark Hyman explains how to:
- Combine the best aspects of the paleo diet (good fats, limited refined carbs, limited sugar) with the vegan diet (lots and lots of fresh, healthy veggies)
