The latest in the bestselling Forks Over Knives franchise-a 28-day guide to transitioning to a delicious whole-foods, plant-based diet.

The trailblazing film Forks Over Knives helped spark a medical and nutritional revolution. Backed by scientific research, the film's doctors and expert researchers made a radical but convincing case that modern diseases can be prevented and often reversed by leaving meat, dairy, and highly refined foods off the plate, and adopting a whole-food, plant-based diet instead...and people listened.

Now, for the first time, The Forks Over Knives Plan shows you how to put this life-saving (and delicious) diet into practice in your own life. This easy-to-follow, meal-by-meal makeover is the approach Doctors Alona Pulde and Matthew Lederman (featured in the documentary) use every day in their nutritional health practice-a clear, simple plan that focuses on hearty comfort foods and does not involve portion control or worrying about obtaining single nutrients like protein and calcium.

Week 1 you'll begin with breakfast and learn how to stock your refrigerator to help support this new way of eating.

Week 2 you'll move on to lunch and learn the basics of meal planning to keep yourself on track.

Week 3 you'll reimagine dinner and find out how to combat cravings.

Week 4 you'll master all the tricks and tips you'll need for the long haul, including how to eat on the go and how to snack healthily.

You'll also get 100 simple, tasty recipes to keep you on the right track, beautiful photographs, and advice throughout the book from people just like you. Find out why physicians, athletes, fitness professionals, and others all over the world are overhauling what they eat-and feeling better than even before. Whether you're already a convert and just want a dietary reboot, or you're trying a plant-based diet for the first time, The Forks Over Knives Plan makes it easier than ever to transition to this healthiest way of eating...and to maintain it for life.

It perfectly makes sense.

It is a plant- based diet. Differing from vegan insofar ad there is no oil except what is naturally present in food and no processed foods such as meat analogues that have chemically altered ingredients.

It is based on whole foods with little or no chemical additives or preservatives. Very low in sugar, using only natural sweeteners and very little of those. Vegan diets can have unhealthy amounts of fats and refined sugar.
I agree with "Black Tiger". You should watch "Forks Over Knives" and its sequel, "The Extended Interviews" (to Forks Over Knives).
Julieanna Hever explains it well in her book on Plant-based nutrition. She is a registered dietician and nutritionist.
There are many books out with scientific studies to support this natural and delicious way of eating.

In response to egyptian27, yes the recipes are essentially vegan. However, no oils of any type are allowed and there is greater emphasis on pasta and rice than in typical vegan books. To fully appreciate how the recipes differ, you must read the Forks over Knives book or watch the corresponding video in its entirety. All the facts aren't presented in the meal plan book.

Good book, but why are they trying to make it seem like its a new type of diet, after skimming through it I realized its a full vegan diet(no dairy, meat as well as fish). They did not mention that on the cover bec it might make some people not want to buy it, so they put the plant based diet, it sounds more alluring.
