Summary

The #1 New York Times bestseller answers: What if one simple change could save you from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer?
 

For decades, that question has fascinated a small circle of impassioned doctors and researchers - and now, their life-changing research is making headlines in the hit documentary Forks Over Knives. Their answer? Eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet - it could save your life.
 

It may overturn most of the diet advice you’ve heard - but the experts behind Forks Over Knives aren’t afraid to make waves. In his book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn explained that eating meat, dairy, and oils injures the lining of our blood vessels, causing heart disease, heart attack, or stroke. In The China Study, Dr. Colin Campbell revealed how cancer and other diseases skyrocket when eating meat and dairy is the norm - and plummet when a traditional plant-based diet persists. And more and more experts are adding their voices to the cause: There is nothing else you can do for your health that can match the benefits of a plant-based diet.
 

Now, as Forks Over Knives is introducing more people than ever before to the plant-based way to health, this accessible audio guide provides the information you need to adopt and maintain a plant-based diet. Narrated by listener favorite Brian Arens, this audio edition comes with a supplementary PDF that includes 96 recipes from 25 champions of plant-based dining - from Blueberry Oat Breakfast Muffins and Sunny Orange Yam Bisque to Garlic Rosemary Polenta and Raspberry-Pear Crisp - delicious, healthy, and for every meal, every day.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Basic but powerful

If you’re looking for a very basic and easy to comprehend information this is a book for you. Very calming voice and really easy to listen. You’ll take a lot of understanding about whole food plant based diet with you and hopefully it’ll change your life for good 😉😊

Thought Provoking

There was nothing to dislike about this book. It made me see the ‘joking’ digs that people following a plant based diet have to listen to on their social media are subjected to. Simply put, there is nothing to suggest that eating meat and dairy will improve your health. For me personally I do hope that if people want to continue to eat small amounts of meat and dairy, that they are allowed to without difficulty, complaint or criticism. Small amounts can surely do no harm? A life changing book, fantastic.

Not the Best Audiobook

The information in this book doesn't transition well into an audiobook. Lots of lists that just sound like words being tossed at you. The chapters that contain information are well thought out and easy to listen to. I'd recommend buying this book instead of doing the audio version.

Helpful Health Information Meets Climatology

The first half of the book was helpful information about health. The second half of the book was about global warming and deforestation—a topic for another book. This book should’ve been called—101 ways to convince you that meat is bad. The narrator was good.

not really informative

this book felt more like just a bashing of meat and no real information or science given. I much preferred How Not to Die. That book gave the science and even how to incorporate the foods into your life.

I felt your description of environmental things,

the description of faulty environmental effects, really diminished the validity of your book and my respect for the authors.
