"In the 1980s, T. Colin Campbell, PhD, co-directed a study of more than 4 dozen diseases and 367 items of socio-economic, lifestyle, nutrition, and genetic information across a population of 6,500 adults in rural china, generating more that 8,000 statistically significant associations. Those groundbreaking results, along with many other research projects described in the bestselling book, The China Study, support the theory that a whole-food, plant-based diet is linked to lower rates of chronic disease. More than a million people across the world have read The China Study and have been convinced by empirical evidence to adopt a whole-food, plant-based diet. The Campbell Plan goes beyond the why and shows readers 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 the cutting-edge nutritional research that fans of The China Study have come to expect. Dr. Thomas Campbell speaks to the reader about health, weight loss, and the science behind it. He also addresses the biggest difficulties of transitioning to a plant-based diet; the most frequently asked questions he receives from patients, practitioners, and readers; and the most cutting-edge research in nutrition. The Campbell Plan's combination of practical tools and the research-based evidence of The China Study will change people's lives for generations to come"-- Provided by publisher.

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.
