It perfectly makes sense.

It is a plant- based diet. Differing from vegan insofar ad there is no oil except what is naturally present in food and no processed foods such as meat analogues that have chemically altered ingredients.

It is based on whole foods with little or no chemical additives or preservatives. Very low in sugar, using only natural sweeteners and very little of those. Vegan diets can have unhealthy amounts of fats and refined sugar.
I agree with "Black Tiger". You should watch "Forks Over Knives" and its sequel, "The Extended Interviews" (to Forks Over Knives).
Julieanna Hever explains it well in her book on Plant-based nutrition. She is a registered dietician and nutritionist.
There are many books out with scientific studies to support this natural and delicious way of eating.

In response to egyptian27, yes the recipes are essentially vegan. However, no oils of any type are allowed and there is greater emphasis on pasta and rice than in typical vegan books. To fully appreciate how the recipes differ, you must read the Forks over Knives book or watch the corresponding video in its entirety. All the facts aren't presented in the meal plan book.

Good book, but why are they trying to make it seem like its a new type of diet, after skimming through it I realized its a full vegan diet(no dairy, meat as well as fish). They did not mention that on the cover bec it might make some people not want to buy it, so they put the plant based diet, it sounds more alluring.
