    1. If I could, I'd give this 6 stars. Finally a book that looks at the big picture, without all the squabbling over should we eat mostly vegetables or mostly grain or mostly whatever. Eat 100% whole foods, 90+% plant-based. He gives his own back story and how he came about his convictions, talks about what is presently known about diet and health, analyzes the food and culture of the Blue Zones and talks about the "Whole Foodie" - as he calls it - lifestyle. He pays homage to his Whole Foodie "hero [...]


    2. On the surface, this book is an exhortation to eat better (much better) than the American diet. Is it any surprise, though, that the primary author is the CEO of Whole Foods? WHile never overt, there's a constant undercurrent of promotion for the chain.The book includes a curated set of diet and nutrition research which, while you can't say it's biased, still flies in the face of some other books on similar topics. Read it as part of a holistic effort to decide what's right for you.


    3. Whole Foods founder John Mackey has written a positive, easy to read celebration of the Plant Based Whole Foods lifestyle. Rather than a treatise mired in too much scientific data, or a fear-based anti-meat sentiment (though he does lay out some facts), Mackey takes the high road of encouraging his readers to understand the benefits of a lifestyle that is at least 90% plant-based, non-processed foods. He leaves the wiggle room of 10% animal-based products for those who feel they just can't make [...]


    4. This was a very well-written and succinct book about how our diets have taken shape around the globe. Mackey does not cling to a specific diet dogma, but walks you through what has been learned by many doctors, researchers, scientists, anthropologists and authors, about past behaviors and direct effects on health today. I've read every book he refers to through out this compilation. This could save you considerable time, or it could lead you to read deeper into certain areas. This book is not ab [...]


    5. If this is your first book like this, then no doubt it is splendid. But if you have read Bittman and Pollan and others, then it is more of the same. No harm saying this over and over again - however.


    6. Good read about the advantages of eating a vegetarian diet. The book gives credit to many who have advocated for eating whole foods through the years. I especially like the remarks about the Paleo and Dr. Perlmutter's diet. I would like too see a book that that gives a full picture of these diets. There are people ,like myself who are very carb sensitive and must pay a lot of attention to amounts of food eaten. This is especially true of grains. The authors claim that it is fat that causes diabe [...]


    7. The Whole Foods Diet has been a fascinating book! The author talks about the different ways that our choices affect our health and longevity. He did go into depth about the Blue Zones and our choices to not eat animals products that could be for various personal reasons, but the author has chosen to stick to a strict vegan and no oils diet for better health. It provided great insight on what to eat and broke down what calories, carbohydrates, plus the types of diets that there are out there that [...]


    8. I have a lifetime of poor diet choices to overcome, but wanting to change and know HOW to change have proved to be two different monsters. This book has taught me so much, equipping with the knowledge I need to begin making positive changes immediately. I recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about the lasting health benefits of transitioning to a whole foods, plant-based diet. I have a lot to learn still, but this book will definitely set me on the right path.


    9. This book is life-changing. It has started me down the path of eating a plant based whole foods diet, giving me both the how-to and the why. I was a little wary that it would promote the store Whole Foods, as one of the authors was its CEO, but the moment he admitted that he himself wouldn't eat most of what is sold in Whole Foods I was hooked.


    10. The context of the book itself is about a 3 for me- but only because I’ve read other books that presented similar ideologies. The extra star comes from the delicious sounding recipes listed at the end of the book. As a “whole”, this was an interesting look into the creation and founder of Whole Foods Market.


    11. You lumped all meats together in a single group (rather than non hormone, grass fed, raised wildc) and you failed to mention that the Inuit tribe was extremely healthy and had low disease rates before they were exposed to our "western diet" on only meat.Other than that, I agree, plants are hard to beat.


    12. A good and compelling argument for a whole foods plant based diet (eating 90% of your calories from plants). The evidence from the blue zones (the places where people live the longest in the world) and from many studies gives a strong scientific backing that many other nutrition books lack. Very good overall.


    13. Great overview with some good starting points for those unfamiliar with a whole food, plant-based diet - I personally wish the author had encouraged a 100 percent WFPB diet, rather than 90 percent-plus, especially since he repeats that the evidence supports that approach as best.


    14. If you've never read any of the other authors included in this book, I'd say it's at least a 4-star book for you. This area is nothing new to me and I did find the book rather repetitive at times. However, the meal planning and recipe section is excellent!


    15. I loved this book. I've read a ton of books on food and health, but this one was by far my favorite. It was straight forward, but not preachy. It makes sense and I love that it's not an "all or nothing" approach. Really great book!


    16. While there are a small amount of things I disagree with this book on, it still was an outstanding educational read! Honestly a book everybody should read. And now I love Whole Foods even more . 😊



    17. Great resource on eating healthy. Lots of great facts and summaries of studies. Also a number of great recipes and menu plans.
