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.
