All the facts and advice for anyone curious about feeling and doing better through a plant-focused diet

What if there was a way of eating that helped us live healthier for longer... and protected the future of our planet too?

The good news is that evidence now shows a plant-based diet may offer us exactly that - and straight-talking nutritionist Simon Hill has done the hard work translating the science into actionable advice for everyday life.

Before transitioning to a plant-based diet, Simon held many of the common reservations, but after making the shift, he experienced incredible improvements in his energy levels, digestion, mental clarity and post-workout recovery. He finally understood the power of food, and was determined to find out the agenda-free truth about the optimum diet for human health.

By undertaking a master's degree in nutrition, poring over the latest scientific papers and books, and producing hundreds of hours of his internationally successful Plant Proof podcast, he pursued the answers to all the questions he had about fuelling our bodies with more plants. Now, in his first book, he brings it all together in one inspiring and practical guide.

It covers:

The reasons why we're all so confused about what to eat

The evidence showing how a plant-based diet might reduce risks of heart attacks and strokes, type 2 diabetes, cancer and dementia

The positive impact of plant-based living on the climate and animal welfare

Common myths about a plant-based diet - and what the real facts are

How to build a healthy, satisfying plant-based plate, from macronutrients to micronutrients

Practical tips for making the shift, and much more

If you want to understand and unlock the many benefits of putting more plants on your plate, The Proof is in the Plants is for you.
