  • Praise for Clean Protein:
  • "This is the right book at the right time for a nation obsessed with protein. Most of what we think we know about protein is misguided or just plain wrong. Kathy Freston and Bruce Friedrich have done a superb job of marshaling in the latest research to dispel myths and reveal the evidence-based truths about how much protein we need, and the difference between bad and good protein. Their conversational tone whisks the reader through compelling science to a clear prescriptive towards a healthier you and a better world-through clean protein."
    Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and New York Times Bestselling author of the Blue Zones books 
  • "In an accessible and friendly manner, Kathy and Bruce provide a step-by-step guide to a healthier and happier you. I enjoyed reading this no-nonsense guilt-free guide to where and how we should all be getting our protein, and you will too."

  • "My favorite part about this book is its realism; Kathy and Bruce invite everyone into their clean protein vision, starting with Big Food, who Kathy and Bruce see as key partners in a necessary global dietary shift. And Clean Protein delivers on its subtitle. If you read this book and implement its suggestions, you are likely to have more energy, maintain a healthier weight, and live a longer, happier life!"

    John Mackey, founder and CEO of Whole Foods and author of Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business

    Andrew Zimmern, host of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and author of Andrew Zimmern's Field Guide to Exceptionally Weird, Wild, and Wonderful Foods
  • "Kathy Freston and Bruce Friedrich have written a powerful and compelling book that will help to catalyze the type of food revolution that is so desperately needed at this point in our world's history. The book is very useful on a personal level, clearly and concisely providing not only the philosophical, scientific and economic arguments for clean protein but also all of the ingredients to allow individuals to easily incorporate clean protein concepts into their daily lives. Physicians and veterinarians should be among those leading the charge given the enormous implications for improving human and nonhuman health, and for helping to secure the ultimate survival of our planet and all of its inhabitants."
    David O. Wiebers, M.D. Emeritus Professor of Neurology, Mayo Clinic; Chair, Board of Directors, The Humane Society Legislative Fund

Clean Protein cuts through myth and misconception alike, like a hot knife through almond butter. This book could scarcely be more needed, important, and timely. Reader, eater-meet crucial reality check!"
