This is a very, very restricted diet, yet very much not a fad diet. It's actually backed by science, and Doctor Ornish actually is well known in the medical community for being able to reverse blockages to the heart using diet, instead of surgery or drugs.

If the ingredients list for each recipe in this book didn't have ingredients or they weren't expensive foods, or if it didn't look like you'd spend literally all your spare time in the kitchen making these healthy meals, it might have been easier for me to be interested in this program; after all, the author has a lot of great points, and really most of it seems like common sense.

The text portion of the book is easy to read and understand. Unfortunately, you'd have to have a full-time cook and lots of money to get much use out of the recipes! Interesting read, but some information is a bit outdated. Overall a pretty rational book on health and nutrition.

I still eat the occasional meal with cheese or fish because it's extremely difficult to go out to eat without eating ANYthing animal-related, and vegan cheese is just gross! This I probably would have rated this book higher if it wasn't for the most part, a cookbook pages of recipes.
