The “Forks Over Knives” plan explains that it is centered on whole, unrefined, or minimally refined plants.

It’s a diet based on fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and legumes; and it excludes meat (including chicken and fish), dairy products, and eggs, as well as highly refined foods like bleached flour, refined sugar, and oil.

Benefits of this diet based on research has now confirmed that a diet high in animal-based and highly processed foods eventually makes people sick and overweight. The diet can also contribute to reversing high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
