Rated out of 5 by from This is an incredible resource for anyone interested in taking control of their health. The recipes are delish and easy. I wish I could give a copy of this to everyone I know. It's not a weight loss book (though if you need to lose weight, you probably would by following her principles) it's a lifestyle book. I am a student of nutrition and this should be on my reading list. Incredible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from UnDiet's Recipes Rock! Undiet is a encyclopedic health resource. I found Meghan Telpner's blog online many years ago. I have followed [...]ever since. I have found the information there presented to be informative and enjoyable. She is energetic, well-informed and very creative in the kitchen. I enjoy learning from her but what really wows me are her fabulous recipes. I have done one of her cleanses (Fabdetox)which included recipes, menu planning and online support. Every single recipe was excellent in taste, health and visual appeal. Many of those recipes have been added to my permanent cooking repertoire. (That is saying a lot, because I change my cooking style regularly in order to keep tastes fresh and inspiring). The health information in Undiet in instructional for all, from those who are newbies to healthy, clean eating, to persons with health problems, to those knowledgeable on how to eat for health. Undiet will be appreciated by all. The recipes will be loved by all who taste their results. Please buy and put Undiet to use in your life. You won't be sorry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! I have been following Meghan's blog for a while now and have been looking forward to this book and it is everything I hoped it would be. Meghan's enthusiasm spills over in this book and it is just a joy to read. Its like you can hear her cheering you along every step of the way. Her experience, knowledge and insight makes this book a must read for anyone wanting to live a healthy full life and not afraid to break the conventional "diet" rules so popular today. This manual covers all the bases. Eating, hydration, real vs fake food, beating and understanding cravings, meal planning, natural living, and tons of amazing whole food recipes. Meghan is living proof that her plan works. Anyone can claim to be an expert and write a book but in a lot of cases its like taking health advice from someone who smokes or getting weight loss advice from an obese person. Just because they have the knowledge doesn't mean they are applying it in their own life. Meghan was diagnosed with an incurable autoimmune disease which her doctors told her there was nothing she could do to make it go away...but boy were they wrong! She put what she shares in this book into action and she has been totally symptom free for 6 years. She is an inspiration and you won't regret having this book in your library!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Life Saver! I found Meghan about 3 years ago when I was searching the web frantically for a way to help my son who was diagnosed with Crohns disease. Her blog spoke to me with wit and humor that I desperately needed during the darkest part of our lives. Day after day I was drawn back to it, learning and laughing and at some points crying (for all the things I just didn't know about food). My son's journey was long and difficult but I continued to make things that were healing for him. Three years later I am so thankful to God for his healing hands and to Meghan for her straight forward teachings and truely yummy recipes. I was so super excited when she announced she was writing a book! Her joy for life just jumps off the pages and makes you want to be the best version of you possible. A must read for every mom (and dad) who want to give their kids (and feed their kids) the very best our beautiful earth has to offer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breath of fresh air! Meghan is my healthy foodie idol and has been for years while I followed her amazing blog - Making Love in the Kitchen. I am so excited that she has compiled so much wisdom into this book so we can all benefit from her crazy amount of knowledge on vibrant living. I love than Meghan isn't afraid to break all the rules and tell it like it is. She is a true leader in the wellness industry. As a fellow Holistic Nutritionist, I'm always on the look out for good resources for myself and my clients. Meghan has been one of those go-to resources for me for sometime. This book contains the info that I want all of my clients to embrace. Meghan makes nutrition and healthy living fun and easy. She is hilarious and very candid with her journey and what we need to do to improve our health. The best part is that it is broken down into bite sized manageable pieces which is necessary to make lasting change. If you are ready to break all the 'diet' rules and have loads of fun while doing it, check out this book it is packed with goodness.

Rated out of 5 by from Speed course in Nutrition As a current student in holistic nutrition, I am wowed by the amount of information Meghan has been able to provide in her book - 'Undiet'. I wish I would have been able to have this book on my desk from my first day at school onwards. It explains so many mechanisms we've discussed over the past year so much clearer than when they were first explained to me. This is what makes this book a total winner to me; it will come in handy when starting of my own practice, gaining the self-esteem and finding my own voice, by having Undiet as a guide while explaining a lot of health issues to my future clients! Meghan's personal story is very honest, touching and inspiring, and throughout this book she knows how to speak to YOU - the reader. Her writing style is fun and engaging, and helps you to boost your self-esteem and to motivate you to start your journey. A journey towards OWNING your health. A journey that will be guided by your intuition, with the knowledge what 'real food' truly is. This book is jam-packed with "juicy a-ha bits of info", yummy, pretty, easy and package-free recipes (I wouldn't have mind some more recipes in the book), personal pictures, super clarifying tables with information - all slathered in Meghan's bright energy and joyful colours. Undiet is a work of knowledge and passion to return to over and over again. You'll feel tempted to read it in one go, but take it easy! There is SO much to learn and achieve, try to implement small changes as you go. Change your mindset concerning calorie-counting, as Meghan clearly explains the flaws in this method. And when feeling overwhelmed while getting groceries, remember her rule: "When in doubt, keep it out!". I highly recommend this book, as it proves to be a joy to the eye, mind, body and your healthy future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh, Delightful, Fun I've been following Meghan through her blog for years. As such, I wasn't sure if I really "needed" this book. I was wrong. This is a grown-up and polished Meghan - though not too grown up. She did manage to slip in a reference to "poo-juice"! Even the familiar is presented in a fresh, fun way. New, beautiful photos are mixed with photos from her website. Standard "Meghan" recipes are updated for the book. Hooray for veggie rice wraps in all their delicious variations! Meghan is the perfect cheerleader for anyone wanting to make positive changes in their life. She encourages you to take things at your own pace, and on your own terms. Break the rules. Yes, there are non-negotiables, but Meghan doesn't dwell on them. Rather, she emphasizes all the amazing things you can have and do while living the life of your dreams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the BEST Health, Wealth and Holistic Lifestyle Book! As a Holistic Nutritionist I have collected many health, recipe, and well-being books throughtout the years. I found myself feeling perplexed by the many health books on the market and thought to myself, if I am confused, how does someone out there that doesn't know about nutrition decide what to choose. What I have found over the years is that I like a blend of cooked and raw foods, no meat, but with a little dairy, a little wild fish and some treats. Meghan's approach in UNDIET takes you through a blend of this style of eating from the healthiest and most natural ways. She has a wonderful story to share and her colourful and light hearted writing style make for a FUN and EASY read. A book that encompasses, mind, body and soul throughout the whole book. Wonderfully inspiring and right for EVERYONE with no focus on calorie counting, or counting your proteins, carbs or fat grams. A holistic and natural approach to your whole life. If there is only one nutrition/health book you buy this year, make it this one... and buy a couple extra's as you will want to have your family and friends have their own copy. ~Nikki~

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get Ready to change your life! Meghan has created a comprehensive guide to healthy living. This book is not about diets, it is about UNDIETING, it is about making changes for a lifetime that make you feel vibrant, young & free. This book is educational and inspirational on all levels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heal your life with Undiet! Holistic Nutritionista Meghan Telpner has released her first book and I have to say it is a humdinger of a great read, full of pretty photos and priceless information. Meghan wound up with "incurable" Crohn's Disease after experiencing a fast-paced, stressful lifestyle as an Ad Executive. Meghan refused to accept her fate though and proceeded to heal herself even though the medical establishment said it was not possible. This beautiful, colorful book is full of no nonsense advice and information. It is a great resource for anyone interested in living a more healthy and vibrant life. I am thrilled to have such a great resource that is also so fun and accessible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You NEED this book! Since last summer, I have been on a health journey of sorts to try and heal myself from multiple allergies that I have mysteriously developed. I came across Meghan Telpner's blog, and since then, she has been an invaluable resource in my healing! This book helps to put everything she teaches in one place where you can read it all again and again! The thing I love most about this book is how EASY it truly is. It's not another gimmicky diet book - it's about going back to basics and eating REAL food. And besides food, Meghan gives great tips to incorporate other lifestyle changes like exercise, drinking more water, ditching the chemicals in your beauty products, and helping the planet. This really resonates with me because once you start looking at where your food comes from and what's in it, it follows that you want to help the planet and make a difference. That's why it's not at all out of place in an UnDiet book! And for those who have a multitude of excuses about why they can't incorporate these changes - exercise, get back in the kitchen, etc., Meghan has the answers taken care of already so that this lifestyle is accessible for everyone. I have already bought several copies of this book for family and friends, and hope that Meghan's fun, approachable way of teaching helps them to make some much-needed lifestyle changes. This is one revolution the world desperately needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The fun way to change your life It’s not easy to know all those things you’re supposed to do and think and eat and breathe to feel good these days. It can be a lot of work! UnDiet changes the game. Meghan colorfully makes eating well and living well a joyful experience. She offers the information you need to know, in simple language. Instead of complicated, easy. Instead of work, fun. That’s something that will change your life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than food... this is about a lifestyle UnDiet has lots of excellent recipes and food ideas, but it is about more than food: it is about a lifestyle. One of the things I like most about Meghan's UnDiet philosophy is that she presents lots of ideas, each of which will improve your health independently of the others. Her view is that a lifestyle shift doesn't have to be about turning life upside down overnight; simply take ideas that fit most easily into your lifestyle, routine and budget right now, and come back to others later. And if you are looking to make big changes, there's an 8-week step-by-step plan for that, too. This book will give you great fuel. I know I'll be coming back to my copy again and again in the next few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UnDiet is a MUST! Whether you are looking for the inspiration to begin your transformation to a healthier lifestyle, or just in need of new fuel to keep you going on your wellness journey, Meghan Telpner's new book, UnDiet, is a must for your home library.

She explains how "what we eat will either build our health or build our disease," and describes how we need to stop the source of the problem in order to heal. From this book you will learn how to read labels and decipher food labeling. Meghan provides us with meal planning tips, as well as an 8-week transformation guide, with healthy guidelines to follow each week and an UnDiet week long meal plan. We learn how to "redefine what convenience eating is," with awesome recipes such as Lemon Lentil Vegetable Soup, and Sun-Dried Tomato and Bean Hummus. Absolutely a must have for your health and wellness resource library!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything You Need to Know and More Undiet is so simple and tangible, and yet revolutionary. As someone who has struggled with my weight and health for years, I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Meghan Telpner, her team and this book. Meghan's holistic approach reminds us that making lasting change requires taking inventory of our life and the choices we've made advertently and inadvertently to this point. The best part is, it really is an "undiet", there is no calorie counting or obsessing about portion size, and the book is full of easy delicious recipes that truly satisfy any craving. Beyond that there are other helpful tips and topics covered like how to organize your fridge and prep for the week,including a gorgeous large photo of the contents in her inspiring fridge. The biggest take away for me after reading this book is being mindful of what I put in and on my body. This book is about building and celebrating health and having fun while doing it, I love it and refer back to it often.

This book is filled with nutrition information, recipes, lifestyle tips, encouragement and energy. Meghan tells of her journey from health problems to vibrant energetic health and tells us exactly how we can do the same. This would be a fun book to go through with your best friend or family member and make the journey to vibrant health together!

Rated out of 5 by from As a holistic nutritionist I’m always on the lookout for new alternative health and wellness books and I have to admit I was incredibly excited for the release of Meghan Telpner’s Undiet: Eat Your Way to Vibrant Health. This book is a game changer. It’s completely inspiring, totally authentic, the writing sings, and the research is solid. Most importantly, however, Meghan encourages her readers to take responsibility for their own state of health by reconnecting with the foods they put inside their bodies and listening to how those food choices make them feel. This book educates and empowers by demonstrating just how easy and attainable healthy living truly is if you take small steps every day towards your overall goals. Meghan’s plan goes far beyond diet and segues naturally into a connection of mind, body, and soul to create a picture of joyful living that anyone would want to manifest. Undiet is a necessity for anyone frustrated by conventional health and nutrition and looking to take action to create a better body and life. It will have a place of honour on my bookshelf and will be the book I recommend to clients when they ask me where to start on their journey. As she says, we can either build health or disease, and with this book as a guide you will joyfully choose to build health every day for the rest of your abundant and beautiful days. Some specifics about the book I thoroughly enjoyed were: 1. The inclusion of a sort of "cheat sheet" at the end of every chapter that summed up the key ideas and actions that had been covered. 2. Each chapter ended with delicious recipes that corresponded once again to the topic of said chapter. 3. The photography is beautiful and includes many authentic day-to-day shots of Meghan and her friends and family living joyfully. 4. The writing is captivating, honest, hilarious, and informative without being preachy. You will tear through this book. 5. Meghan included practical tips for slowly but surely overhauling your pantry and by extension, your life. If you do yourself one favour in 2013, it should be to buy this very important and incredibly inspiring book!

Rated out of 5 by from Whether you've tried everything else, or you're looking to try something to bring well-being into your life - this book is it. The Undiet philosophy is something I was slowly coming to realize through my own experiences, various resources and plain trial and error. This book presents everything in an undaunting and fun way. Meghan's fun personality shines through - it's like a book written for you by your best girl friend. Along with anecdotes, the book is filled with information, tips and advice on how to put principles into action and make it easy. There's also tons of recipes included through the book, along with a transitional plan on Undieting your life. Tons of inspiration. I like how it's not about nutrition, but also about the other aspects of your life. It's a lifestyle! There's tons of info on natural beauty, the environment, and goal setting. I've completed the 3-day test drive and have tried and loved the recipes, and just how much easier it was to prep food ahead of time so I can make the best choices. It's a comprehensive guide to un-do and question all that you've known to be "right". If you feel like there's still more that can be done to make life so much sweeter - here's your guide!

Meghan’s own story is inspirational and I was honored that she shared it in this book. She lets readers in with a enthusiasm that is contagious. I’ve been interested in my health for many years and it wasn’t until I learned from Meghan how much was wrong with what I thought to be true. She makes changing your life easy by breaking it down into small, manageable steps. This book is an insight into how to live your life healthier without worrying about calories. Her recipes are tried and true (and delicious!) and will change even the heartiest of carnivores into a vegan-wannabe. Buy this book. It will be the best thing you’ve ever done for yourself.

Rated out of 5 by from Meghan Telpner's book, UnDiet, is such a wonderful resource--I have read it twice in its entirety, and constantly go back and refer to different sections as I work through transforming my diet and life UnDiet-style. I love that she breaks down the basics into easy-to-implement steps. Each chapter is broken down by topic, and she covers everything from the most basic concepts (staying hydrated) to the more complex (nutrient breakdowns and beauty products) in a way that is easy to understand. Her enthusiasm for the subject matter shines through on every page--and it's contagious! I love that the book concludes with an 8-week plan about transforming your diet and lifestyle--it looks easy to implement, and doesn't require taking on too much at once, as it's broken down into baby steps. I highly recommend checking it out if you're even the slightest bit curious about the UnDiet lifestyle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enter into the land of UnDieted love and you won't want to leave! I have read a lot of ‘diet’ and ‘health’ books in the past few years but I am guilty of rarely finishing them! I easily read UnDiet from start to finish (in a couple of sittings at that)! I have been a big fan of Meghan Telpner for several years and eagerly anticipated the arrival of her new book (and hopefully not her last). Meghan’s bright personality shines through the book, from the carefully selected quotes, to the candid (and honest) writing, to the colourful pictures scattered throughout. She truly embodies her work and her authenticity is evident. In the book’s introduction she states: “There is no division between the work that I do and the life that I live”. From the start, it is clear the book is truly about UnDieting! The goal is a vibrant and healthy life, not a number on the scale or a waist measurement (though that may be a nice side effect). This is a lifestyle change and an ongoing practice (Meghan suggests similar to a yoga practice). UnDieting is not just about the food we eat, but how we feel during the day, the relationships we have, how we get ‘our sweat on’, and the work that we do. Besides being colourful and visually appealing, UnDiet is also well organized! Broken up into 10 chapters, each chapter ‘tackles’ one aspect of the UnDiet lifestyle. Facts are presented simply and to the point with ample evidence and reasoning (i.e. we all know we shouldn’t drink out of plastic water bottles. Meghan clearly explains why!). Each chapter is followed by a page that summarizes the chapter’s key points (much like that of your high school chemistry textbook but way more exciting), and provides transitional tips and mantras to help you gradually UnDiet your life. Everything you need to improve your health and your life is covered: real food recipes, how to optimize your time in the kitchen, how to select recipes (something I have never before seen in a ‘healthy living’ book), optimal fruit and vegetable prep, how to kick your cravings and tackle your bad habits, how and why to reduce your food waste, edible beauty and home care, and how to ‘love what you do and do it with love’. UnDiet concludes with an easy-to-follow eight-week transformation and seven day meal plan to help you start UnDieting your life. As an added bonus when you purchase the book you are able to join the UnDiet Book Club/Facebook group (full of members sharing their delicious-looking recipes and thoughts on their UnDieting experiences). UnDiet is incredibly accessible. Whether you are a seasoned ‘UnDieter’ or wanting to transition into a healthier lifestyle, UnDiet will undoubtedly prove helpful! Meghan is personable and your biggest cheerleader. Her own personal photos and anecdotes throughout the book allow the reader to feel that they truly get to know the author and encourage them to enter (and never leave) the ‘land of UnDieted love’. Well-done Meghan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will never look back... Looking at the cover of this book, you can't help but get excited! UnDiet is just as vibrant and colorful on the inside, with just the right amount of serious light bulb moments to get you really thinking. Honestly, you just can't get any simpler than this. Don't get me wrong, this is not your run-of-the-mill 'do this, don't do that' kind of book. Meghan's infectious energy and passion for healthy living will draw you in instantly, I certainly was! This is a book you will not want to put down, there is so much information and inspiration; you’ll want everything to soak in all at once so you can put it into practice the moment you close that book! With UnDiet, there are no 'catches', no weird food or pills... there is no pressure or guilt to eat a certain way. We have all been inundated with certain diet crazes enough. Meghan gives us the tools to learn how to truly listen to our own bodies, and gets back to the basics. With REAL food When I started on my path to wellness a year ago, Meghan was right there, cheerleading me along (with many others), equipping and enabling me to take my health into my own hands step by step. I have never looked back, and neither will you! I am so happy have this book as a reminder of all I have learned, and need to learn again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspirational and fun! Up with the pompoms for a better you! Well, I guess that a book with the word “diet” in the title sells by itself but, WARNING, the book is not about dieting. It’s about a building a better life for you and the people around you! Un-diet here is like un-learning: get rid of bad old habits and fill in with new challenging but rewarding ones. It’s meant to inspire, through wise words coming from experience and expertise, and guide you one step (or as many as you can handle) at a time to incorporate and re-learn new routines to build a better health from the inside out. And it’s not all about food, so don’t expect food recipes galore in the book. For that, internet is actually an amazing resource! However you’ll find recipes here, not just for yummy meals and snacks, but recipes to create an enhanced and happier you! I’ve loved every piece of it: the topics Meghan covers, the suggestions, the way it’s written, the colours used… It truly transmits positive energy!

Meghan tells it like it is while holding your hand through the process of making healthy life changes. She is a cheerleader for each reader and that shows in her writing and mega enthusiasm for all the information she shares. The recipes are delicious and definitely worth a try and the way the book is organized makes it easy to incorporate UnDiet changes into your daily routine. I will be using this book as a guide for healthy living and Meghan as inspiration that healing through good food and good energy is entirely possible.
