This book makes the case for a healthy, whole-foods, plant-based way of eating. The authors argue that eating a plant-based diet produces powerful health benefits including a reduction of health care costs. It is also better, they aver, for the environment, showing how dependence on farm animals contributes to global warming, deforestation, waste, water pollution, fisheries depletion, endangered species, and soil erosion.

In spite of the benefits, however, convincing people to switch to plant-based diet has huge obstacles to overcome. They name the food industry and its profit demands as the primary culprit, writing, “With billions of advertising and marketing dollars, it [the food industry] annually cajoles and entices us with its dairy, meat, fish, poultry, and eggs, as well as products laden with sugar, salt, and fat. This ceaseless assault achieves its goal of convincing a vulnerable and unprotected public to ingest food that will make them fat and sick…”

Certainly anyone who watches television can attest to the onslaught of ads for less than healthy snacks an “treats.” But the real treat, the authors maintain, will be how much better you feel when you eat differently.

A few recipes are included but those trying out this lifestyle will want to check out the companion book, Forks Over Knives: The Cookbook.. Those who try these recipes will be surprised at how good the food tastes. It is not the tastiness of the food that is the barrier, really, it is the psychology…. ( )

I found the book was just as bad, if not worse, than the film. Like the film, the book relied on some cheap shots to prove its point - which was completely unnecessary, as there s sufficiently strong evidence without the melodramatics (the worst being the movie, as many of the foods suggested as fitting in the Food Pyramid - diet coke for example - isn't part of the USDA food pyramid or "My Plate" (in fact, soda is listed as "empty calories" and even stated that it should be avoided). The movie and the book used cheap theatrics to make its point; actually, I felt the figures/diagrams were not properly explained in the book and only made sense if you saw the film.

As well, I found that the author assumed a lot of information to be fact without citing any research, particularly in the beginning. It was very much a diatribe - and not all books on veganism/plant-based diets are. While my next criticism is common in many books on veganism, I still find it distasteful in this book: it is one-sided and suggests problems with veganism as solutions without realistic perspective on what would happen as a result. For example, he suggests how meat-eating harms the environment by the waste such animals produce, but even if cows were not longer needed for meat or milk, they can no longer be released into the wild nor could the chemicals related to their waste be completely eliminated from the environment - unless he is suggesting we purposefully extinct these creatures for no longer being useful?

All of the information he presented has been stated - in fact, better stated - in other books. This one was a waste of my time... Okay, I wrote down a few recipes but they aren't stellar and still not worth it. ( )

From the book a couple of things that resonate with me.

"Sadly, today most doctors treat only the symptoms, not the cause, "

“Every day, we see messages saying things like, “Calcium is good for your bones” or “Vitamin C helps to prevent colds.” ... This is a misdirected strategy because optimal health cannot be achieved by focusing on a few nutrients or eating a few special foods ...."

There were other things that I highlighted and are visible on goodreads, but those very much match my feelings.

Since switching to plant based eating in the fall of 2017 I started to notice that most restaurant entrees are meat based. Menu entries without meat are few to none.

Back in the 1970's there was a vegetarian restaurant called Wheatfields in Trolly Square in Salt Lake City. My wife and I were not vegetarian but liked to eat there because the food was so delicious. Then they added meat and wine to the menu. The same old items were still on the menu, but they no longer tasted as good. I had the same experience with eating in a restaurant chain in San Jose, California - They added meat and wine to their menu and the other stuff no longer tasted as good. I wish I had an explanation for that why that happened.

On a related topic, in the Honolulu airport last week (June 2018) I noticed a gift shop that had two kinds of shelves: chocolate shelves and alcohol shelves. Since it was not a liquor store, I was quite surprised to see those two items as the only things in that store. In fairness to that store, they had another storefront across the isle that had other items in it.

Try shopping for snack bars that don't contain chocolate and see how limited your choices are. Those observations strengthened my suspicion as to how healthy chocolate isn't. I first began to suspect it when I learned about things that reduce the number of receptors at a synapse. Chocolate is one of them. But this isn't meant to be a rant against chocolate. Unfortunately for my taste buds, I find that my solid elimination and mental acuity are better when I limit the amount of chocolate that I consume. External stress seems to cause me to want to eat chocolate. ( )

This book tells you why a "plant based diet" is the way to go. It also has some recipes and helps to help with the transition. I've tried several of the recipes and they are good. Not much to look at as far as pictures but the food is edible.

This is the book that is the companion to the documentary Forks over Knives (available at Netflix). The book did not get 5 stars because it isn't pretty and at points it seems to draw criticism unlike the movie which everyone notes is far better than the book. Still, I liked it and found it interesting. This gives you the research behind why meat has been reported to cause cancer. I didn't believe this when it first came out in the news but after reading the research, I have changed my mind. More concerning is dairy but nothing is being said about dairy. I read this book along with [book:The Omnivore's Dilemma: The Secrets Behind What You Eat|6114536] and have recently finished [book:Lab Girl|25733983]. I am convinced that eating plant based diet, whether you go Vegan, Vegetarian or just VB6 ([book:VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00 to Lose Weight and Restore Your Health . . . for Good|15798321]) I think you will find a lot of benefit in health and the environment will benefit as well. What really was impressive to me is that both books delved into the agricultural industry and reported how livestock for food purposes generates more climate-heating gases than do all carbon-dioxide emitting vehicles combined. Cows are worse than cars. The American diet derives 47 % of its calories from animal products. This amounts to a carbon footprint of 2.52 tons of CO2 emissions per person per year. The book also provides 125 recipes in case the reader wants to make the transition to a plant-based diet. ( )
