What's the Story?:
From Goodreads.com: "The trailblazing film Forks Over Knives
exposed an entirely new generation to the whole-food, plant-based
nutrition revolution and inspired thousands to want to transform their
diets, and their lives. With so many people looking for change, the
outstanding question became, How can we put these dietary
ideas into practice? That's what authors Alona
Pulde and Matthew Lederman reveal in The Forks Over Knives Plan: The 4-Week Guide to Whole-Food, Plant-Based Health;a
clear, easy-to-follow plan that outlines the steps to take each week to
transform your diet by cutting out animal-based and processed foods."
My Two Cents:
"The Forks Over Knives Plan" is the book from the doctors who appeared and the Forks Over Knives documentary that so many people have watched. If you are familiar with the concept of these doctors, they believe that the most important diet that one can undertake in their life is one that requires whole foods and a plant-based diet. I'm always interested in different ideas about diet and the food that we eat, so I was interested to pick up this book to see what the doctors had to say.
This book is about how to go from me eating everything to transitioning to only eat the whole food plant-based diet that the doctors prescribe. They talk about all of the different claims that their patients and other people who have undertaken this transition have made. It's diet is supposed to improve health and wellness. It also includes a lot of recipes, which was really good for me. I definitely will make some of the recipes in the future. I think that it's always a great idea to move towards eating more healthfully and I believe that this book may help some people. Some of the claim seem to be a little bit aggressive but it's worth a shot!
