About Kathy
The Lean


If you’ve ever dieted, you’ve undoubtedly worked very hard to achieve results--only to experience the disappointment of having the pounds creep back on. But now wellness expert Kathy Freston lets readers in on her secret: losing weight doesn’t have to be difficult, and it can last. With this book she shares the powerful concept of The Lean--a radically effective approach to positive change--with a practical 30-day plan to transform your health and jump-start weight loss in the most gentle, easy, and automatic way possible.

“Leaning in” is about setting an intention for what you want, weight- and health-wise, and then nudging yourself ever so gently in that direction, even if getting there seems impossible. It’s about choosing to eat foods that are delicious, filling, and supportive of your goals.

Each day of the scientifically based, vegan-friendly Lean plan, Kathy shows how to make and commit to small diet and lifestyle changes that, over time, yield unexpectedly significant results--something as simple as swapping in nondairy milk for cow’s milk, eating an apple a day, or having an afternoon power shake. These changes propel you almost effortlessly into a forward momentum of ever more healthy choices, and work together to bolster your progress. There are only two rules:

1. All you need is the willingness to take just one step.
2. As you add the healthier foods to your diet, eat the new foods first.

By gradually adding in these nutrient-dense and fiber-rich foods, you’ll crowd out the problem foods, feel fuller for longer, and simply stop feeling cravings. On Kathy’s Lean plan, readers can experience sustained, healthy, and permanent weight loss of 1-3 pounds per week—plus increased energy, improved digestion, clearer skin, and renewed purpose. Complete with exercises, recipes, and powerful testimonials, The Lean offers not only a truly leaner frame, but also the little push we all need to get on the path to lasting change.



Kathy Freston wasn't born a vegan. The bestselling author and renowned wellness expert actually grew up on chicken-fried steak and cheesy grits, and loved nothing more than BBQ ribs and vanilla milkshakes. Not until her thirties did she embrace the lifestyle of a veganist--someone who eats a plant-based diet not just for their own personal well-being, but for the whole web of benefits it brings to our ecosystem and beyond. Kathy's shift toward this new life was gradual--she leaned into it--but the impact was profound. Now Kathy shows us how to lean into the veganist life. Effortless weight loss, reversal of disease, environmental responsibility, spiritual awakening--these are just a few of the ten profound changes that can be achieved through a gentle switch in food choices.

Filled with compelling facts, stories of people who have improved their weight and health conditions as a result of making the switch, and Q&As with the leading medical researchers, Veganist concludes with a step-by-step practical guide to becoming a veganist…easily and gradually. It is an accessible, optimistic, and illuminating book that will change the way you eat forever. No less delicious, still hearty and satisfying--just better for you and for all.

 Quantum Wellness

For anyone looking to experience a quantum leap in their overall health comes the ultimate guide to complete-well being—QUANTUM WELLNESS: A Practical and Spiritual Guide to Health and Happiness (Weinstein Books) an instructive book on how to reach our highest level of health and contentment through small, focused changes from New York Times bestselling author and renowned personal growth counselor Kathy Freston. Featuring a foreword by bestselling health guru Dr. Mehmet C. Oz, QUANTUM WELLNESS will forever change the way you approach healthy living.
            QUANTUM WELLNESS teaches us that to be truly well means much more than just not being sick—it means having energy to face both everyday life and exceptional challenges. It also means having the awareness that your life experience is part of a much larger picture, one that involves the lives of everyone and everything else that inhabits this world. Having this awareness is essential to experiencing a healthy life. And just as we must recognize that our lives are interconnected with all other life on the planet, we must also recognize that our personal mind, body, and spirit health is inextricably linked. Perhaps we are physically fit, but are lacking in spiritual awareness, or very emotionally and psychologically astute but lazy in the way we eat. Because body, mind and spirit all work together to create wellness, we cannot experience the upsurge, the full thrust required for a quantum shift when any of these three areas go unheeded.
            Freston shares her own compelling journey towards QUANTUM WELLNESS and provides an easy-to-follow roadmap for anyone who wants to achieve optimal health. Among the essential information included in this breakthrough guide are chapters on the following:

  • The importance of leaning into change—why taking small, manageable steps toward the changes we want to achieve have a more profound effect than trying to radically alter any one behavior.
  • The essentials of maintaining a cross-training approach to your body, mind, and spirit health. Freston instructs us how to give ourselves a “wellness check-up” and how to use her 8 Pillars of Wellness (meditation, visualization, fun activities, conscious eating, exercise, self-examination, spiritual practice, and service) to create a flexible, lifelong plan for well-being.
  • How developing a curiosity, a willingness to investigate pain and/or discomfort, will dramatically increase your chances of healing any ill that is holding you back from QUANTUM WELLNESS.
  • How to clear mental clutter using several exercises, including “stream of consciousness” meditation and journaling, which will help reveal thought patterns that need to be healed or upgraded, and also identify those that are working for you.
  • Doing a cleanse—why giving up the comfort of certain foods is a tried-and-true means of enhancing, preserving, and enlivening physical as well as spiritual well-being.
  • Creating space in your home that is conducive to QUANTUM WELLNESS, which includes de-cluttering and creating an altar dedicated to your higher power.
  • The importance of choosing our food with integrity, keeping in mind all aspects of how the food arrives on our table. Freston shares the advantages of giving up meat in favor of a healthy plant-based diet from ethical, dietary, and environmental perspectives, and stresses why conscious eating is essential to one’s health.
  • How to become your own healer in times of physical, emotional, or spiritual crisis.
  • How to break bad habits and cope with addiction.

           To assist even the most hard-core carnivore lean into a more plant-based diet, Freston also includes forty-five vegetarian recipes, two weeks of meal plans, a general shopping list, and an appendix of beneficial vitamins and minerals.  In harmony with the body, mind, and spirit focus of QUANTUM WELLNESS, Freston also includes an appendix of suggested reading and websites that support her expert advice.
           Within these pages, you will learn to achieve your best health possible; to point yourself in the direction of growth, to train yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential, to take the necessary steps to support whatever shifts are required.  Welcome to the world of QUANTUM WELLNESS.

Expect A Miracle

The search for the love of our lives is one we've all experienced. Those of us who feel we just can't find what we're looking for often get stuck in a rut of negative beliefs, unfulfilled needs, and blame. Instead of looking within ourselves to discover who we truly are and what we desire, we often look to someone else "out there" to make us happy and whole. The result is that we keep playing out the same unhealthy pattern, attracting more of what we don't really want, bringing ourselves only more frustration, loneliness, and pain.

In this honest, compassionate, and wise book, Kathy Freston illuminates the path to greater self-awareness - and the real love we all crave. Not a pat book of "dating advice" or a guide to manipulating others, EXPECT A MIRACLE is a wholly new kind of guide to the search for a great relationship, one that puts the focus back where it belongs: on our own personal transformation. Drawing on philosophy and spirituality from around the world, Freston also uses meditation, visualization, and spiritual guidance to help us become magnetic to love.

With exercises, inspiring real stories, and the warm candor of a wise friend, EXPECT A MIRACLE is a positive, practical, and powerful book for all of us who are still looking for that one great love - the one that starts with a spiritual journey within.

Guided Meditation CDs

Kathy Freston's Transformational Meditation is the process of mapping out the changes you'd like to make in your life through the use of guided imagery. When we visualize what we want to see happen in our lives, we give our brain new images and feelings to hold on to, thus providing both our mental and physical energy a new framework to fit into.

As you learn to switch up the images of yourself, everything else follows. You start gravitating more toward experiences and practices that support the new images.

Kathy Freston's Transformational Meditation CDs bring results-oriented guided meditations designed for both the newcomer and longtime practitioner. Through step-by-step voice instruction, Kathy helps to bring the listener to a place of openness where an internal shift in consciousness can occur. By following these guided meditations, we can change our deeply held beliefs and thought patterns, which then will attract the positive and healthy attributes and circumstances we want in our lives.
