How I Easily Lost Half My Body Weight Eating More Food Than You Could Ever Imagine

Benji Kurtz

My journey to good health has been nothing short of life-changing, as you may have gathered from several other posts on this site. There’s no doubt, the direction of my passions, my business endeavors and my time have all changed. All the way through, while losing the weight and answering questions from friends, relatives and strangers alike, I was told, “You should write a book!”

As it turns out, I, along with my friend Glen Merzer, have done just that. The Plant Advantage: How I Lost Half My Weight on the Fuel Plus Fortification Diet is available now, in paperback and Kindle editions, exclusively on In addition to telling my story and explaining the science behind whole-food plant-based living, I am thrilled to feature over 50 healthy, plant-based meal recipes from eight contributors, including Chef AJ, Kim Campbell, Wendy Solganik of Healthy Girl’s Kitchen, Cathy Fisher, Del Sroufe, Michael Klunker, Joanna Samorow-Merzer and Plant-Based Katie Mae.

Read the book that Dr. T. Colin Campbell calls “A delightful read for anyone who may be confused by the gibberish infusing the public discussion on food and health.” Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn says the book “concisely defines the science and skills enabling the lifestyle and nutritional literacy required for a long and healthy life.” I invite you to pick up a copy – and tell a friend!

Thank you for your ongoing support!
