  1. I am so excited about How Not Diet hitting the shelves next week. There's still time to pre-order to get it delivered ASAP: https://nutritionfacts.org/how-not-to-diet/

  2. I do not struggle at all with weight because I follow a whole food plant based diet but I think i may want to order this book so that I can teach these principles to my clients. ( I am a personal trainer)

  3. I hope the book come in 6 month in German language…I eat plantbased …and I lost not weight…because I paraplegic?

  4. Hi Dr. Greger!! I'm so excited about your new book, I loved the first one and pre-ordered this next one. I remember in one of your live videos you once mentioned that a project you'd like to pursue after this book would be a book about food and mental illnesses. I was just wondering if that is somewhere down the timeline? I think a project like that would be revolutionary!

  5. what do you mean a WFPB diet is the best for weight loss without calorie restriction? without calorie restriction by definition you cannot lose weight…?

  6. Dr Greger. You ARE AMAZING! You’re helping me to improve not only my health. But that of my Husband, four beautiful children, and my parents.
    Thank you for your dedication, and sharing your knowledge.

    You’re fascinating to watch, listen to and read. 🙂

    Best wishes,
    PJ.

  7. I am such a fan of Dr. Greger that

    I ordered the book and another one on audible…. I can read when I’m sitting and listen on the treadmill! Can’t wait to get it!

  8. First diet book I have ever ordered. I don't need to diet. I'm just looking forward to reading the evidence that he's compiled and reviewing his conclusions. I am considering fitness coaching on the side so this may go well into my library.

  9. Awesome! I'm a community dietitian working mainly with ppl trying to lose weight. This will help me to help them!!! 😊👍

  10. I pre-ordered this book, I can’t wait to get it. My son gave me the How Not To Die book as a Christmas gift last year, and it changed my life. Your book was a requirement at his nutrition class at University of Portland.

  11. Simply can't wait to read your book Dr. Greger. Thank you Sir for doing this for all of out there who are tired of hearing the the same crap on a weekly basis. Brilliant!👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  12. Hi! Will the book also be available in german?

    I am so fascinated, but my english is not enough for scientific facts

  13. Thank you so much Michael for this second masterpiece from your hands! You and your team are of incredible importance to the health of humanity. At least to those who’re smart enough to listen to you. Thanks nutritionfacts.org for all the work you do and special strength to you Michael for the less enjoyable result of offering all that time in writing this book for us, regarding the impact on your private live.❤️🇧🇪

  14. Cuándo estará en español? He leído COMER PARA NO MORIR y como nutricionista puedo decir que es el mejor libro que he leído en este campo. Enhorabuena a todo el equipo y gracias de corazón por difundir tanta sabiduría en la salud.

  15. Can someone please recommend an online plant based nutrition course with accreditation that is not affiliated with any woo, thank you?
    (I'm aware of the ecornell course. Looking for others).

  16. Interesting that someone calling this(epidimiology) "science" and not anecdotes . When all the science that supports a plant based dient is 99% epidimiology that is observational IE anecdotes. We shouldn't only want weight loss, but fatloss and muscle gain if we wan't to live long and stay healthy. Having a ton of high oxolate foods (legumes & leafy greens) ie spinach that has so much oxolates that you won't be able to absorb any of the calcium in them. You will however get kidney problems, if you also add soy to this you have goitrogens that will affect your thyroid function and might lead to hypothyroidism. This nutrient & protein deficient diet is a sure way to keep people malnurished and sick.

  17. Wow put so much work into your books and all for charity, what an amazing person you are.And off course your team.Congratulations on the book!!!

  18. Why would I listen to someone who's obviously in poor health. Those are the thickest glasses I've ever seen. He needs some animal retinol.

  19. why dont fruitarians have all these health issues that vegans get if they dont follow all of your food recommendations when they have way lower intake of all the nutrients (iodine, zinc, selenium, b12, sodium) that vegans have to eat certain foods to get enough of? is it possible that everything you know and teach is wrong Michael? or are the anti nutrients in plants that arent designed to be food just that strong? please reply..

  20. Love all your work Dr. Gregor!! Great first book which I have and can't wait to get your new one! Been following you for years and so happy to have found you. Great sense of humor too!!! Blessings to you and yours!!💝😁😊😉😀

  21. Dr. Gregor, thanks for all you do to get the word out. I found you when struggling with weight and trying every kind of "diet" imaginable. Your content has motivated me and enlightened me. I LOST OVER 100LBS and have never felt better!

  22. I started a plant-based diet 2 1/2 years ago and although I lost 20 lbs at the beginning, it crept back on. I need to lose 80 to be at my healthy weight, so I can't say the initial progress was all that astounding. I'm really looking forward to this book. I've already tried some of the tips from the talk he uploaded recently and some of it worked to curb my eating habits. No weight lost yet but fingers crossed there's more in the book that will help. It's a huge struggle. I'm tired of hearing "if you just go plant based, the weight will fall right off." Not all of us are that lucky.

  23. I must wait till next year to get this book. But the most important thing is there is just planned the polish translation. I'm so glad!!

  24. I lost almost 20 lbs on a WFPB diet, and it was easy! I actually surpassed my goal of 15 lbs. I graduated from grad school in May, 2019…had gained weight in college…sedentary lifestyle studying, fast food, etc…I have a friend who is obese, trying to lose weight, and on BP pills…I try to tell him about WFPB diet, but it's to deaf ears. Last night, he makes a salad of iceberg and topped it with ham (packaged), 2 eggs, bacon, and cheese. You can lead a horse to water, but unfortunately, you cannot make them drink. It's sad 🙁

  25. Am I the only one that expected a hollywood-like trailer? …vegan Tarzan style?… (just kidding 😋)

    Thank you for this great website, dr Greger! I can't wait to read your new book!

  26. Please, is this book already being sold in Brazil? Is there any Portuguese translation? Congratulations on the book and the initiative!

  27. Mike, congratulations on your new book. What you do translating scientific evidence nutrition for all is awesome. I saw your presentation of your book and it looks as rich and valuable as your first video I watched. Laura Bonilla Biochemist, Microbiologist, Clinical Trialist.

  28. I've had my copy on order since I first heard about it. I can't wait for it to arrive. Thank you Dr Greger your work cuts through the hype and dietary misinformation and gives the honest facts. I wish more Dr's here in the UK would take notice. My Dad is recovering from triple bypass surgery and the dieticians are giving him advice that is contrary to the facts you have published. I think they are trying to kill him off. It is so annoying as he won't listen to me as I don't have a nutrition qualification. I don't need one i just need to read your work.

    Thank you, again, for all you do.

  29. Thanks for introducing your new book Michael. It looks like it will be hugely successful, both for the charities to which you donate the profits, as well as to your inner peace as you realize how many folks you are helping in their adventure of life!

  30. You are The DOCTOR! Thanks for your researches and sympathy!!! Great book was the first one…looking forward for this one now!

  31. Dr Greger is such an AMAZING human!! He donates ALL PROCEEDS from his books to CHARITY!!! His website is non profit with no ads as well. Thank you Dr. Greger!! God bless you for your incredible efforts to help the world!!

  32. I've noticed that the daily dozen app has been updated today, is there a reason why Vitamin D has been removed from the supplements list?

  33. Just purchased “How Not To Diet” from Amazon, this is the third book of yours that will be added to my collection. Thank you so much for all the hard work you do!!!

  34. Sounds like a bunch of fat logic. Saying a calorie of x is not like a calorie of y is like saying 1g of chocolate doesn't weigh the same as 1g of broccoli. If calories, which are just a measuring unit and do not exist physically, are soooo inaccurate, why do most people lose or gain weight if they eat based on calorie recommendations and actually track what they eat, not just guess it. We can't guess calories well just as we can't guess the water temperature well. Of course 1g of cholocate has a different effect on the body than broccoli but it still is 1g. Maybe due to different absorbtion you could still say one absorbs 100 calories worth of a certain food (for the people in the back: not the calorie itself,a calorie is not a nutrient in itself) while another person only absorbs 95, the different still is not so big to throw the cico concept off completely.

    Anecdotes aren't proof yet many studies are based on the guesstimates of people who did not track their calorie intake accurately so I would not call them proof either.

  35. Dr. Greger the book is fantastic but I purchased the audiobook in iTunes and I can not find the PDF you keep talking about!!! This is the only down side. I paid $40 for the audiobook and have spent the last hour looking for the elusive PDF?????? Please help!
