To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Cuando un libro se titula PLAN, da a entender que va a haber un plan de comidas perfectamente estructuradas en menús diarios y semanales. Pero en cambio, está dividido en un apartado de desayunos, otro de comidas y otro de cenas, y que cada cual se elabore su propio menú. Decepción.
I watched the movie and really enjoyed it. However, this book is titled as the Forks Over Knives "Plan" in which it is hardly a plan. It is a book that explains what the movie did, throws in recipes at the end, and calls it a plan. The end of the book has a list of resources such as the Engine 2 diet, which is the same as the Forks Over Knives plant based philosophy and actually is a plan with real guidance. If you are looking for regurgitated science from the movie, this book is for you. If you are looking for an actual plan look into Engine 2.
Having already been familiar with the Forks over Knives books I was looking for a "plan". Was very disappointed with this book. Too many personal stories and not enough "plan". I expected a whole lot more. Did not read it right away so was unable to return the book. I would not recommend this book. If you are already familiar with the series this book will not really assist you. If you are still looking for recipes...there are some which I guess is worthy of a few stars...
I'm retired so don't have a demanding work schedule and family to keep up with. I like to try out the recipes that look & sound appealing, but have gluten & lactose & other dietary restrictions that I have to adjust to the menu. Also, I don't live in or near a big city & have difficulty finding at least one ingredient in most recipes so it takes more time to get ready to prepare something from the suggestions.
I was drawn to this book by the FOK movie. A great deal of it makes sense. However, in terms of actual recipe ingredients I was disappointed. Canned foods don't make it around our house. And if it isn't a good idea to feed soy products to animals, why would it be good for me? It increases estrogen in the body. For women that could lead to breast and other cancers. Canned foods are generally less nutritious and come with added contaminants from the inside of the cans. I had been curious to find out how one can get enough protein from vegetables alone, and found out it's mostly soy. As such I returned this book. It is of no use to me. I will modify my diet to contain far less meat. But I won't be so fanatical as to remove every trace of it. I do not believe the so-called CHINA STUDY tells us to do so. In fact, that study does not prove such a program is required. Something that is not even mentioned throughout FOK discussions is how the food should be grown and how much ill health is due to commercial agriculture as opposed to organic agriculture. This is information we could all use -- environmental toxicants as a proponent of disease.
