With the majority of Americans now attempting to eat healthier and an estimated million of them each year in the past decade adopting vegetarian or semi-vegetarian diets, The Great Life Diet is ready to enter the cultural mainstream.
At the forefront of this American revolution in eating since 1969 has been health counselor and teacher Denny Waxman, founder of the Strengthening Health Institute and author of The Great Life Diet, which distills the wisdom of his thirty-five years of experience into a clear guide to a better, healthier, longer life. Essentially, Waxman's method weds a diet of whole grains, beans, vegetables, and soups to a lifestyle that nourishes the mind and the spirit.
In seven steps, The Great Life Diet offers a balanced and orderly approach to an -active, fulfilling daily life. The aim always is to strengthen health, however good or ill. Indeed, thousands of people, their ailments ranging widely from the common cold to chronic fatigue to heart disease and even to "incurable" cancers, have been helped, often dramatically, by espousing the dietary and lifestyle practices described in Waxman's instructive guide.
With sound sense and flexible principles, this diet extends to its readers a means both to better their health and to significantly enhance the joy in their daily lives.

This book is for anyone who wants a great life in the shortest amount of effort! Nov 11, 2007
I like this book because it's for the good of all! It benefits the earth as well as the people it sustains. Denny will show you HOW in the simpliest of ways and if you only adopt one or two of these life changing habits, you will have gained a victory towards the greater good of the earth and for your own well-being. Please do not miss out in making this small difference. I also enjoyed Denny's great delivery and clear message, lacking in many books dealing with health today. I personally have seen a tremendous change in many ways in my life for the better after using these principles. Reading his book clearly shows Denny Waxman's great wisdom backed up by years of personal experienced and time tested with his many clients throughout the world. I feel so lucky to have found a reading where I can experience a kind of natural satisfaction, expanding my freedom and widen my thinking. For me; playing with these simple steps will be a lifelong adventure and I will benefit with optimal health as well. "The Great Life Diet" is a timeless resource guide I will always have in my library. Thanks so much. I will treasure it!
Concise book about getting started with a new lifestyle Aug 23, 2007
My wife and I went to Denny Waxman for macrobiotic counseling on the recommendation of a friend, as my wife was diagnosed with cancer. We were very impressed with his recommendations for her specific health issues, and we have seen immediate results.
Denny's book, "The Great Life Diet," is wonderful in explaining concisely and accessibly how macrobiotics works and about the lifestyle changes involved. The best thing is that Denny highlights each chapter at the end, an extremely helpful technique.
This book should be read by everyone, even those not interested in macrobiotics, for its enlightening focus on healthy living.
The Best Introduction to Macrobiotics and Living as Designed Jul 7, 2007
Denny Waxman's *The Great Life Diet* has the virtues of simplicity, brevity, clarity, and practicality. He writes in an engaging, calm voice that radiates the common sense and flexibility his decades of experience have given his recommendations. This is anything but an invitation to an ascetic Japanese food cult. Rather than austerity, Mr. Waxman lays out a way of eating as we are designed for greater health that you can create empirically from your experience rather than rigidly from locked-on ideology. His success in helping people reverse "terminal" illnesses using diet and life-style is no surprise after reading this book which supplants Carolyn Heidenry's *Introduction to Macrobiotics* as the best one-stop reference for living and eating according to traditional principle and human design. I recommend it without reservation.
