Book Description

June 28 2011
What if one simple change could save you from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer?

For decades, that question has fascinated a small circle of impassioned doctors and researchers—and now, their life-changing research is making headlines in the hit documentary Forks Over Knives. Their answer? Eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet—it could save your life.

It may overturn most of the diet advice you’ve heard—but the experts behind Forks Over Knives aren't afraid to make waves. In his book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn explained that eating meat, dairy, and oils injures the lining of our blood vessels, causing heart disease, heart attack, or stroke. In The China Study, Dr. Colin Campbell revealed how cancer and other diseases skyrocket when eating meat and dairy is the norm—and plummet when a traditional plant-based diet persists. And more and more experts are adding their voices to the cause: There is nothing else you can do for your health that can match the benefits of a plant-based diet.

Now, as Forks Over Knives is introducing more people than ever before to the plant-based way to health, this accessible guide provides the information you need to adopt and maintain a plant-based diet. Features include:

  • Insights from the luminaries behind the film—Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. John McDougall, The Engine 2 Diet author Rip Esselstyn, and many others
  • Success stories from converts to plant-based eating—like San’Dera Prude, who no longer needs to medicate her diabetes, has lost weight, and feels great!
  • The many benefits of a whole-foods, plant-based diet—for you, for animals and the environment, and for our future
  • A helpful primer on crafting a healthy diet rich in unprocessed fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, including tips on transitioning and essential kitchen tools
  • 125 recipes from 25 champions of plant-based dining—from Blueberry Oat Breakfast Muffins and Sunny Orange Yam Bisque to Garlic Rosemary Polenta and Raspberry-Pear Crisp—delicious, healthy, and for every meal, every day.

“A great resource for folks toying with the idea of transitioning to vegetarianism.”
—Carolyn Scott-Hamilton, in VegNews

“[A]n invaluable reference for anyone who still doesn’t believe that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is in fact the cause for a majority of our personal, global and moral devastation. Highly recommended.”

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Take charge of your nutrition - this book and the documentary that it compliments is a wake up call to raise awareness of what you need to know about what you are eating. The jury may be out on effects of our typical north american diet - a look at some hard evidence about plant based diet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read Aug. 28 2012
By Dubbers
I have read a lot about nutrition and healthy diets. I picked up this book because there is a history of heart attack and stroke in my family. I found the reading easy and extremely informative. If you are concerned about the health of your heart you need to pick up this book. The guidelines set forth may seem challenging at first but in my opinion are doable with a little effort and some planning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just OK Oct. 13 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a little short on facts and rails against the food business for obvious reasons. There's no doubt that the north american diet is full of unwanted and unneeded ingredients and the industry needs to better regulated, and not by the FDA and the like, which are no more than a lobby for the industry. People need to take sole responsibility for their nutrition and subsequent impact on their health. That being said, the recipe section is great. For those wishing to make changes in their diet and don't know how to go about it, the recipes found within are excellent and simple to prepare. We've tried many of them and even the kids enjoy the food. I suppose. Overall, it's a good start to educating people, but couldn't have done it in a more factual way.

2.0 out of 5 stars More agenda than book
The only reason I'm giving this 2 stars is on the off-chance that someone out there hasn't heard or read a thing about nutrition. In that case this book might have a bit to offer. Read more
