The Forks Over Knives Plan Giveaway

Sharing is caring!

I recently had the opportunity to receive an advance copy of The Forks Over Knives Plan: A 4 Week Meal-By-Meal Makeover by Alona Pulde, MD, and Matthew Lederman, MD. You’ll remember them as the husband and wife team from Forks Over Knives. The Forks Over Knives Plan debuts today and I’m ready to tell you what to expect!

Forks Over Knives Plan

What You’ll Find Inside

One of the things I hear over and over again from readers is that they have watched Forks Over Knives but they aren’t sure how to make the transition. The Fork Over Knives Plan teaches you how to make that transition one meal at a time starting with breakfast, followed by lunch then dinner.

Part 1

The Fork Over Knives Plan starts byย sharing Dr. Pulde and Dr. Lederman’s stories. It gives us insight as to how they became doctors and learned about a whole food, plant-based lifestyle and what it did for each of them. Second,ย we learn why the “Plan” works to reverse and eliminate disease. Next we learn what a whole food, Plant-Based Diet looks like. You’ll be happy to learn you don’t need to live on a diet of green salads alone and it’s important to get enough calories (which is easy to do on their plan).

Part 2

The second part of the book covers the 4 week transition. Week 1 you focus on making healthy choices at breakfast. They also discuss how to read nutrition labels, what to have in your pantry and protein.

Week 2 encourages healthy choices at lunch, now you are up to 2 healthy meals per day. It also discusses Meal Planning, calcium and will power. Week 3 helps you transition toward a healthy dinner and offers helpful suggestions like cooking in bulk or cooking with friends. There is also a discussion on fats, oil and cravings.

Week 4 is all about fine-tuning your lifestyle and making small changes to get everything working well. There is also discussion on eating out, traveling and carbs.

Part 3

The last section is recipes, glorious recipes! A 100 recipes to be exact! Later this week I’ll share a delicious Fall recipe from The Forks Over Knives Plan.

If you’ve been intimidated by the science in other plant-based books or you’ve tried eating plant-based but would get stuck along the way then The Forks Over Knives Plan may be what you need. You’ll be encouraged by stories from other people who have been on the same journey.

  5. I would love to win a copy of this book. I still sometimes struggle eating plant-based

  6. I’d love to win a copy. I do enjoy meat and cheese, so I haven’t gone completely plant based.

  7. Jenny Spears says:

    This looks like another great plant-based resource. I would love to win it!

  8. My biggest struggle with a plan based diet is the no oil part. I am working on cutting down right now ( I dont use a lot anyway).

    • Amber, that part was easy for me. I struggle more with wanting to get something quick to eat out. I wish there was an inexpensive vegan drive thru nearby. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. my biggest struggle is portion control and overeating–even if it is healthy food, you can overeat on it.

  10. Robyn Koehler says:

    My biggest problem is my cravings for junk I shouldn’t eat, I would LOVE to win this book. Thank you for your wonderful site, I just found it and love it!!!

  11. My biggest struggle is feeling like i have to make everything….i feel like I’m always in the kitchen because i have two small children who want to eat constantly.

    • Cassie, my kids never stop eating. Now that one is in school it’s not as bad but my 3 year old is like a never ending pit. He could eat all day! Sometimes I wish I could just give him some magical food that would fill him up for hours.

  12. My biggest struggle seems to be finding plant based options at some of my favorite places to eat. But it’s funny trying to figure stuff out or educate them ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Donna Abramson says:

    My biggest struggle is when eating out. It is difficult when eating at other people’s houses to avoid the things I shouldn’t have. I would love to win this book!

  14. Lack of planning or being burned out on having to “think” so much to eat healthy.

  15. My biggest struggle is still cheese. I don’t miss meat at all, but every now and then, the cheese tempts me. It doesn’t help that my husband and son are omni!

  16. My biggest struggle is dairy products (mostly while eating out). Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  17. My biggest struggle is that my family doesn’t eat this way. ๐Ÿ™

    • This is difficult Sara! Maybe one day they will come around or your plant-based cooking will be so good they won’t be able to resist it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Lydia Claire says:

    When I’m tired, which is all the time, I don’t have the energy to cook so I do eat vegan convenience foods.

  19. My biggest struggle currently with eating plant based is I’m pregnant! I still try hard to stay on path, but being preggers doesn’t help!

  20. My biggest struggle with plant based eating is finding quick meals for our family of 6- I need to plan ahead better!

  21. My biggest struggle is SUGAR!! I love it and miss it. I am such a newbie to WFPB diet, but I really want to be successful. This book would be such a help. Please pick me!

  22. aprilplankapril says:

    my biggest struggle is cheese!

  23. My biggest struggle it’s planning ahead, and then following that plan. When time (or energy) runs short mid week, it seems so much easier to grab something quick that’s not always the healthiest option!

  24. Would love a copy of this! My biggest problem is consistency, especially when eating away from home.

  25. I’m new to plant based eating and it would be GREAT to have a guide to follow! ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. My biggest struggle is going oil-free. I stopped buying and cooking with oil, but I give in to chips and cookies too often. Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. I crave protein ALL the time! I loved the documentary and I’m really looking forward to the book.

  28. Christina North says:

    This would really be helpful as I try to return to my pre-baby body! Baby comes next week and would love some help getting started. This would be perfect!

  29. My biggest struggle is finding recipes that my family will like. Also going oil free and finding something sweet/salty for the afternoon snack are things I struggle with. Thanks!

  30. My biggest struggle is making a plant based meal my entire family will enjoy. They seem to think if it is plant based then it will not taste good…. Makes for lonely meals sometimes. I would love this book…. Sure did love the movie!

  31. I just watched Forks over Knives for the first time last night. I want to start eating a plant based diet. I am tired of feeling lousy.

    • Jenny Spears says:

      Since I recently became plant based, I need all the help I can get. Having the Forks Over Knives Plan would be great!
