12-time New York Times bestselling 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, 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.

One of Dr Hyman's greatest attributes is the ability to change his mind and advice when new evidence and studies prompt course corrections in his recommendations. This humble and laudable ability is on display in The Pegan Diet, where hard and fast 'rules' give way to savvy, doable guidelines for achieving optimal short and long-term health. If great eating advice, without the 'my way or the highway' philosophy, is what you seek, buy this book!
The line between medicine and food is thinner than people think. Both go into the body, where they affect the overall health of the organism. Mark Hyman understands that, and wants to make sure that you do, too. His new book combines aspects of other diets you may have heard of, paleo and vegan, to develop a new way of living and eating. I prescribe this book!
Dr Hyman has done it again. By framing food as medicine, The Pegan Diet takes an innovative and important approach to wellness.
