3.0 out of 5 stars Glad I read the reviews -- much prefer previous Thrive, June 29, 2010
This review is from: Thrive Fitness: The Vegan-Based Training Program for Maximum Strength, Health, and Fitness (Paperback)
I got this from the library after reading the other review comparing and favoring his first book, Thrive. It seems he got his product line going somewhere between starting and finishing the book. Many of the recipes depend on his products and/or hard-to-find items. While his points about nutrition are well-taken, it seems that much of his ideas and recommendations are based on a sample of one (his own performance). I certainly believe in figuring out what works for each person, but it gets a little old. I'm a believer in whole, fresh and LOCAL foods, and it'd be hard to do this program without a lot of flying semi-processed items in from the Amazon and tropics. The other book has some similar frustrations, but the recipes have fewer of these issues. Finally, the strength program calls for weights/bench (no room/$ in our home) or a $50 online order of another specialty exercise item, which was the last turnoff. There are good pictures, descriptions and record-keeping forms, so if you're set on that stuff, it's probably an easy and worthwhile program to follow. I haven't finished Thrive, but find it better for me.
