This is an excellent primer on nutrition, and it's important to note that it is based on scientific research. This book will explain why the standard American diet of animal products and refined carbs is making us sick and fat, giving us type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease, among a host of other ailments. While the USDA food pyramid has traditionally been based on demands from the agribusiness lobby (livestock, dairy, etc.), this book focuses solely on what science has shown us. I would recommend this book to anyone. The only thing missing from a plant-based diet is Vitamin B-12, so be sure to take a supplement if you choose to go vegan. Otherwise, read this book and prepare to lose weight, feel more energy, clear up your acne, balance your hormones, and get healthy! You can learn more about a plant-based diet from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine at [...]

It is amazing how much of the conventional "wisdom" about nutrition is promulgated by people and organizations with a serious conflict of interest. People often talk about a "vegan agenda" while ignoring the agendas of the meat industry, the dairy industry, etc. It's time to look past all of that and just look at the facts. People who eat plant-based diets enjoy better health and suffer from fewer chronic diseases than those who eat the standard American diet. If you want to reap those benefits, this book will tell you how. It will tell you how to determine your nutritional needs and how to meet them. Delicious healthy recipes are provided to get you started. I would recommend this book to any woman who wants to live a long healthy life and avoid the standard American diseases that go hand in hand with the standard American diet.

How dumb do you have to be to know that eating a plant based diet is the best thing you can do for your health?! This book is not "misleading" to people that already know a little about good nutrition and health. Yes, if you've bought into the whole Atkins craze then don't read this book! But if you're looking for a solid nutritional guide that will help you live a healthy, happy life (by following a plant based diet) then this book is a definite gem. :o)
