1. John McDougall's "The Healthiest Diet on the Planet" - https://www.drmcdougall.com
Why the Foods You Love-Pizza, Pancakes, Potatoes, Pasta, and More-Are the Solution to Preventing Disease and Looking and Feeling Your Best
For years, we’ve been told that a healthy diet is heavy on meat, poultry, and fish, and avoids carbohydrates, particularly foods high in starch—empty calories harmful to our bodies.
But what if everything we’ve heard was backwards?
High in calories and cholesterol, animal fats and proteins too often leave you hungry and lead to overeating and weight gain. They are often the root causes of a host of avoidable health problems—from indigestion, ulcers, and constipation to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. On the other hand, complex carbohydrates like whole grains, legumes, tubers, and other starches provide your body with essential proteins and nutrients that satisfy the appetite while simultaneously fighting illness.

The Engine 2 Diet was created and implemented by Rip Esselstyn, a former world-class professional triathlete and the son, grandson and great-grandson of renowned physicians, after he discovered the dangerously high cholesterol level of one of his fellow firefighters at the Austin (TX) Engine 2 Station.
Rip saved countless lives as a firefighter. Now he is saving millions more with his New York Time best-selling book, The Engine 2 Diet. His groundbreaking nutritional program with indisputable, dramatic results allows you to lower cholesterol and lose weight in just 4 weeks by eating foods that are plant-based, nutrient dense, naturally low in calories and high in fiber.

Based on the groundbreaking results of his 20-year nutritional study -- the longest study of its kind ever conducted -- this book explains, with irrefutable scientific evidence, how we can end the heart disease epidemic in this country forever by changing what we eat.
Here, Dr. Esselstyn convincingly argues that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent and stop the profession of heart disease, but also reverse its effects.
