Based on the research of Dr. T Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, we advocate a whole-food, plant-based diet (see www.forksoverknives.com). The program is based on whole, unrefined or minimally processed plants, primarily fruits, vegetables, tubers, whole grains and legumes. It excludes or minimizes animal based foods such as meat (including chicken and fish), dairy products and eggs, as well as highly refined foods like bleached flour, refined sugar and oil.
