I’m not vegan but i wanted to learn more about It and have options, so It was perfect for me. I like how Melody tells her own personal story of why she became vegan.
This chick is strong! I’ve seen her bending metal with her bare hands on Facebook videos.
My dilemma in the past is that it's been really hard to find scientifically accurate vegan and vegetarian resources I can refer my readers to because I've found that vegans are so passionate about their personal ethics that sometimes their passion and strength of values (about animals) gets in the way of what science and evidence actually says about the nutrition. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first evidence-based book on vegan eating ever released.
The first 30 or so pages are the background info, and the information is so good, I actually wish she had spent even more time in that introductory part. However, in that brief space, Melody covers all the major points and she debunks all the common myths about veganism, combining the passion of her personal values with scientific references to everything she says. (This is very different from what you may read in most vegan books)
The rest of the book (pages 33 to 152) are all the recipes.
I have to be honest, the book has a self-published look (I have the print version) and could have had better graphic design and typesetting / layout. But I like her honest and scientific / evidence-based) approach so much, I can't knock a star off for that - the content is 100% solid. Five stars
This may likely be the reason that some don't know the science is out there. Big Ag spends big money to keep it from being out there. But if takes a vegan book by a bodybuilder to get that sector of the population to take it seriously, I'm going to go back and give it five stars for breaking through some hard heads. :-)
I will probably have to buy another copy because I found out today that my co-worker is vegan and has health problems. And they are the kind associated with an unmanaged vegan diet. I asked her about what she does for iron, vitamin D, B12, etc. and she immediately said those were all the deficiencies her doctor says she has. I loaned her Melody's book because she's nearly 50 years old and unaware of how to manage her diet. This book is going to really help her.
