Artificial trans fats can be found in many processed foods such as donuts, potato chips, and microwave popcorn. In 2013 the FDA announced that it would likely remove GRAS status of hydrogenated oils for food, and in 2015 it finalized that ruling.
These shelves at our local grocery store display supplements (in food and drink form) for protein. This was my first question when I started a whole food vegan diet (a la Forks Over Knives), and it continues to be one of the first questions I am asked by people who are curious about beginning this way of eating. In fact with just a quick internet search I was able to credibly confirm that a diet based on a variety of whole plant foods satisfies protein needs. When we eat a typical western diet we can double the protein that is needed by our bodies for muscle and tissue repair, hormone synthesis and other tasks.

Even if you ate a diet of 2,000 calories of one single plant food like corn, potatoes, or asparagus, you would exceed the minimum requirement for each essential amino acid.
What follows is a days menu of whole plant based food (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and a nutritional analysis of macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Even without heavy use of legumes (an excellent source of plant protein!) a menu of whole plant based food easily exceeds protein requirements, as you can see in the nutrition breakdown below. Many people on the path to a healthful way of eating are concerned about the nutrient sufficiency of a plant based way of eating. There’s no need to spend money on programs like this when normal activity and a diet of essentially peasant food will achieve vibrant good health. Keep in mind that food is powerful medicine and if you have a health condition or are taking medication at the time of the class you will need to see your doctor about adjusting–or eliminating–your medication during your transition.

Of course, we don’t eat only asparagus in a day–we eat a varied diet of whole plant foods, which is even better!
Participants receive a hardcover copy of the New York Times best selling book, “The Forks Over Knives Plan.”  Over the course of the month you will learn how to transition one meal at a time, week by week, until your entire diet consists entirely of whole plant based foods. High protein diets such as the paleo or Atkins diet can provide well over 300% more protein than is recommended–or needed.
