A revolutionary approach to diet and lifestyle that will strengthen your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, from Macrobiotic expert Denny Waxman.

With the vast majority of Americans now attempting to eat in a healthier manner, Denny Waxman's macrobiotic diet plan is ready to enter the cultural mainstream, which has been at the forefront of the macrobiotic movement since 1969 and runs the Strengthening Health Institute in Philadelphia. The Great Life Diet distills the wisdom of his thirty-five years of experience into a clear, concise guide to a better, healthier, longer life. Waxman weds a diet of whole grains and cereals supplemented by fruits and vegetables to a lifestyle that nourishes the mind and the spirit. 

In seven steps, Waxman offers a balanced and orderly approach to an active, fulfilling, daily life. The aim always is to strengthen health, however good or ill. Many people, their ailments ranging widely from the common cold to chronic fatigue, heart disease, even "incurable" cancers, have been helped, often dramatically, by following the dietary and lifestyle practices described in this exceptional book. 

Denny Waxman has been a macrobiotic counselor since the 1970s and is one of the founders of American Macrobiotics. He has changed the food narrative away from a diet dependent upon animal & dairy foods. From the Mid-Atlantic Summer Camp, to opening the first natural food store in Philadelphia, Essene Market, and directing the Kushi Institute, he has been a pioneer of macrobiotics. His notoriety came after Dr. Anthony Sattilaro overcame terminal prostate cancer and credited Denny for saving his life in his book, Recalled by Life. Denny teaches globally and is the author of The Complete Macrobiotic Diet and The Ultimate Guide to Eating for Longevity.
