The Forks Over Knives Plan Keeps You On Track For Success

What if you are dissatisfied with your health? Maybe you are overweight, low in energy, plagued with headaches or sinusitis or chronic pain, on multiple drugs, or spending way too much money on the medical profession.

Then you find out your suffering and expense aren't necessary. Hope glimmers for a real change. Maybe you saw the movie Forks Over Knives, or observed a friend regain her health on a whole foods, plant based diet, or read a science-based book on plant-based nutrition.

Here's your problem. You are not sure how to get from where you are to where you want to be. The change may seem daunting and the food unfamiliar. You see others reshaping their meals overnight, while you are trying to figure out step FoK matt and alona image (2) smaller.jpgone.

You have as much capability to improve your health and learn to enjoy new foods as anyone else does. Your questions are totally normal.

The book The Forks Over Knives Plan is your hands-on guide to transitioning to a whole foods, plant based lifestyle. The book's authors, doctors Alona Pulde and Matt Lederman, make your journey simple, enjoyable, and paced to meet your needs.

The book has everything you need to be successful:

  • An overview of the benefits of basing your food choices on whole plants
  • A guide to changing breakfast, lunch, and dinner, one week at a time
  • Flexibility in how quickly you transition
  • The calorie density you should aim for to achieve both appetite satiation and an ideal weight
  • Instruction on how to put together and shop for a meal plan for the week
  • Practical tips on stocking your refrigerator, eating out, getting together with friends, and much more
  • Over 100 delicious recipes for healthy, simple-to-prepare versions of some favorite "comfort foods," including pancakes, granola, pizza, burritos, lasagna, spaghetti, mashed potatoes, curries, chili, salads, and even dessert

You can relax and enjoy your food, without concerns for getting "enough" of specific nutrients and without hunger or deprivation.

I was fortunate to meet with Dr. Pulde and Dr Lederman, who are spouses as well as co-authors, and find out more about the writing of The Forks Over Knives Plan, starting with the idea for the book.
