In 2005, T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and Thomas Campbell, MD, co-authored The China Study. In it, they detailed the groundbreaking research results showing that a whole-food, plant-based diet has the potential to prevent and reverse many chronic diseases. The China Study became a worldwide phenomenon, selling more than a million copies and inspiring countless readers to reinvigorate their health by making better food choices. Now The Campbell Plan, by Thomas Campbell, MD, goes beyond the why and shows you how to make the transition--and enjoy the journey--with practical guidance and a simple plan to make a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle easy and sustainable. The Campbell Plan is full of cutting-edge nutritional research that fans of The China Study have come to expect. Dr. Campbell addresses the most contentious questions- Is soy healthy? Should you eat gluten? Do you need to eat organic? Should you eat fish? Is GMO dangerous? How should you feed your kids? Just as important, you will learn the behavioral principles to succeed in your journey, as well as what to stock in the kitchen, how to read labels and shop, and how to navigate social and eating-out situations. Included are more than 55 delicious and easy recipes from favorite recipe sources and a 2-week menu plan. Whether you wish to lose weight, reverse disease, or just have the best health of your lives, The Campbell Plan provides the step-by-step guidance to achieve their goals. This combination of practical tools, along with the research-based evidence of The China Study, will change people's lives for generations to come.

My ex wife/girlfriend likes to tell me that I am highly suggestible and would make an awesome participant for a stage hypnotist. I'll admit that I was enthralled and was pretty convinced at first that I was going to trade kale and spinach for all the meat and dairy I eat four times per day. The problem is I don't really like veg and force myself to eat them once per day. I like the yarn this cat was spinning but then I realized his pattern was to negate every other dietary theory and fad from the past 50 years because obviously according to Campbell his research proves him right and you can't argue with science. I do think there is probably a correlation between meat and heart disease and so I will credit this book with at least getting me to think about eating healthier. I mean I do wake up at 5:00 am every day to go to heated, power, sculpt, cardio yoga. I figured I may as well try to eat a little cleaner as well. Campbell rubbed me the wrong way at times and thanks to my Mormon upbringing I typically run from anyone spouting the only "truth", but I will give him props because I have been eating significantly more fruit and veg and have had zero meat since I started this piece. So mayhap it's okay to be a tiny bit suggestible on occasion.
