From the physician behind the wildly popular Nutrition Facts website, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can help prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.

Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug-and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks.

In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen -a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day.Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor's orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

Waist Away: How to Joyfully Lose Weight and Supercharge Your Life (Get Waisted) (Volume 1)


A mother/daughter physician team will show you how in waist away, a book that reflects their 15 years of medical experience and cutting-edge nutritional know-how. These two docs believe in the philosophy that good food is always your best medicine. You’ll read stories of their patients who lost weight and conquered chronic diseases, simply from eating a delicious, plant-based diet.

Waist Away features special sections on revving up your sex drive, staving off osteoporosis, conquering food addictions, and sailing through menopause. You’ll also get great advice and recipes from the biggest names in the nutrition world. If you’re ready to lose weight joyfully and live a life free of disease—in a delicious way that makes sense for yourself and the planet—this book is for you.

Waist Away reads like one of those long, candid conversations you’ve always wanted to have with your family doctor. The kind you never get to enjoy because everyone’s watching the clock and other patients are waiting….

If there’s a main focus to Waist Away, it’s the virtue of vegan living. Wendt is a firm believer that a diet containing red meat significantly increases the risk of chronic disease, so it’s a subject she doesn’t hesitate to address in a very pragmatic way. “I try not to use any “v” words on the first appointment,” she quips of her encounters with patients. “It’s like talking about your crazy relatives on the first date.”

Throughout the book the tone is friendly, reassuring, and even humorous. Wendt describes some of the challenges she’s encountered as a vegetarian—for example, going out to dinner parties and being the only guest at the table without a plate of food because of her “special needs.” Her approach is down-to-earth, grounded, and practical, and her recipes reflect her focus on healthy living with foods such as Cajun red beans, vegetarian chili, wraps, and sandwiches.

Clinton makes a strong case for going vegan. Careful readers may just find themselves making a few lifestyle changes. —ForeWord Reviews

Dr. Mary has done an exceptional job distilling the science of lifestyle medicine into actionable nuggets of good health. Her approach to good health is a sure fire way to achieve your best health starting today. Fingers, feet and forks are the "secret" to good health, and Dr. Mary teaches you how to use all three to move from surviving to thriving. —Dr. Stephan Esser, M.D., Founder of Esser Health

I have placed Waist Away on my required reading list for my friends, private patients and family members; all the people who matter the most to me. —Don Wagner, D.O., Medical Director of Bullhead Urgent Care and host of the Dr. Don Show.

I applaud [Dr. Mary’s] efforts to spread the word with the readers of her timely and informative book. —Charles J Huebner, MD, FACR, Harbor Arthritis/Lifestyle Center Petoskey, MI
