Kathy Freston is a bestselling author with a focus on healthy living and conscious eating. Her latest book, Veganist: Lose Weight, Get Healthy, Change the World, was an instant New York Times bestseller, as were two of her previous books--Quantum Wellness and The One. Kathy’s other books include The Quantum Wellness Cleanse: The 21-Day Essential Guide to Healing Your Mind, Body and Spirit and Expect a Miracle: 7 Spiritual Steps to Finding the Right Relationship.
Kathy promotes a body/mind/spirit approach to health and happiness that includes a concentration on healthy diet, emotional introspection, spiritual practice, and loving relationships, among other tenants. Her work is focused on providing guidance for conscious and healthy living in our increasingly busy world. Kathy continually cites the proven value of “leaning into” change and the benefits of “progress, not perfection.”
In O Magazine, Oprah Winfrey wrote, “Kathy Freston struck a nerve for me by speaking of a higher level of awareness, what she calls 'spiritual integrity' … Kathy cautions that the way to full consciousness isn’t to give up every poor choice at once. Calling Freston "THE Veganist," she says, “Lean into it. Don’t try to break a lifetime of bad habits overnight.” I’m leaning.” On her show, Ellen DeGeneres said, “I can’t tell you how much [Quantum Wellness] has changed my life for the better," noting that Kathy has devoted her life to getting us all healthier. While on The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz introduced Freston as "the woman who is revolutionizing the way we eat." And Dr. Dean Ornish says, “Kathy Freston has years of experience inspiring people to make intensive changes in diet and lifestyle that helped transform their lives for the better. Kathy’s approach is multidimensional and multifactorial, a powerful blend of what works and why.”
Kathy has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Ellen, The View, Good Morning America, and CBS's The Early Show. Her work has been featured notably in Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, Self, W, and Fitness. She is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post.
