In this book, the author offers a compassionate how-to manual for anyone who wants to know more about what a whole food plant-based diet is, how to transition from unhealthy eating habits and break free of cravings, and how to ensure lasting success. It combines plenty of motivation for adopting plant-based eating with a practical plan for following through. Along with encouragement to envision exciting new possibilities, readers will find a useful framework for assessing their own readiness level for change—from Easing In to plant-based eating to committing to a Total Transformation. Then, at a manageable pace, they’ll learn how to set SMART (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Relevant, and Time-Limited) goals and overcome obstacles on their path.
