The book’s sub-title, “How to Transition to the Life-Saving, Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet”, says it all. I switched to this way of eating over 5 years ago. I lost 50 pounds and got off cholesterol and blood-pressure medicine and I’ve never felt better. I’ve had some good recipes over the years but the recipes in this book look like some of the best yet. Twice-Baked Breakfast Sweet Potatoes, Spinach-Potato Tacos, Tex-Mex Bean and Cornbread, Mushroom and Green Pea Risotto, Lentil-Pecan Hummus, and a whole section of desert recipes to boot! I can’t wait to make them. Drs. Pulde and Lederman have done a great job. As you can see in the Editorial Reviews above, the smartest people in the field of nutrition love this book. You will too. It’s a no-brainer!

I was looking for a book that would present sample meal plans and menus to help me transition from vegetarian to vegan diet, not a book on why a vegan diet is the best. I did not want a lot of reading- as I have the Other Forks Over Knoives books. I just wanted something simple to help me meal plan. I do like the shopping list, but it should have been presented in a different layout so that it popped from the reading material. It would have been good to include an appendix with several weeks worth of menus as samples.

I also thought there were too many personal stories. I was already convinced to eat a vegan diet, that is why I bought the plan.

The new Forks Over Knives book is like a visit with the kind plant-based doctor you wish you had. The doctor who is keenly interested in your health and well-being, assumes you actually ARE interested in taking practical steps – instead of pills – to be healthier. The doctor who believes you do have the drive to make better choices.The doctor who appeals to and honors your intelligence about it all.

And what better plant-based doctors than the stars of the Forks Over Knives movie, Dr. Matt Lederman, and his wife and partner in plant-based medicine, Dr. Alona Pulde? The book is straightforward and easy to read, with solid sections on nutrition and the multiple ways in which a whole food, plant-based diet builds health and prevents disease. After telling their personal stories, the doctors progress to a full section on “The Science Behind the Whole-food, Plant-based Diet.”

The authors then present a sensible pathway for transition in the form of a 4-week transition: meal by meal, starting with breakfast and progressing through lunch and dinner. Broken down by chapters, Week One is Breakfast, Week Two is Lunch, and Week Three Dinner. Week Four is “Fine Tuning You Lifestyle”. Each chapter is brilliantly peppered with tips and information via “Let’s Get Practical”, “Eye on Nutrition”, “Making it Work For You”, and “Getting Personal”.

The Forks Over Knives Plan also has a robust recipe section jammed with contributions from Darshana Thacker and Del Stroufe. Experienced plant-centered chefs both, their expertise shines through in their entries.

In my opinion, you can never have too many plant-based books, whether instructional or recipe oriented - and this one does both. Nice job team FOK!

Format: Hardcover
'The Forks Over Knives Plan' is a book about healthy diet prepared by Alona Pulde and Matthew Lederman, two MDs who realized that traditional medicine is lacking, instead developing food-first approach to practicing medicine.

Given their experience they two shared view that patients who suffer from serious illnesses can help them themselves not with pills and drugs, but by eating well – following balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains.

The result of their cooperation with Brian Wendel was documentary ‘Forks Over Knives’ directed by Lee Fulkerson in which their studies were presented – how diet of low fat, whole food and vegetables will help you leading better and healthier life.

After the success of documentary kind of ‘Forks Over Knives’ movement became stronger with each day and as result of it the book 'The Forks Over Knives Plan' is today in front of readers. Within its covers authors provide guide for four-week program which will introduce you to FOK philosophy.

The authors made really detailed book which basically covers all the aspects of their nutrition plan, discussing how in same time eat food you love and get all the required ingredients that will make your organism healthier.

The book is divided in three major parts – the shortest one presents introduction to FOK philosophy explaining the basics of this nutrition, the middle part describes week-by-week four week long transition program, while the third and largest part was left to recipes introducing readers to numerous healthy dishes prepared using FOK nutrition plan.

Out of this book's 336 pages, the 2-page Forward, and the first 140 pages of the book are the core of the book - and what an astounding, invaluable and revelatory core!

The fact that Brian Wendel, the Executive Producer of the excellent DVD entitled FORKS OVER KNIVES (FOK), contributed to the content of THE FORKS OVER KNIVES PLAN, is a resounding "Good Nutrition" seal of approval to recommend this book.

Dr. Colin Campbell, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, basically provided us with the key concepts in the FORKS OVER KNIVES DVD, but Drs. Alona Pulde and Matthew Lederman, really fleshed out their basic concepts with reams of astonishing additional detail, such as debunking the glycemic index, or "The Incomplete Protein Myth," for starters - this is terrific content.

If there is a Pulizer Prize category for "personal quotes" included in a book, then most of the personal quotes included in this book are of Pulitzer Prize caliber - one after another, they include great insights and observations, well stated.

This is not a "once and done" book, because most everyone will probably be repeatedly referring to those initial, and transforming 140 pages from time to time, until they become intuitive.

This book's 146 pages of recipes are, compared to this book's first 140 pages, fluff - but you want to know what? I expect I will be frequently referring to these convenient recipes, because I will also be frequently referencing the content of the first 140 pages of this book. Furthermore, I always enjoy the introductory comments to each recipe by a recipe's author, a nice and informative touch not frequently found in recipe books - I have already read all of these introductory observations.
