About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Honestly, folks, if it's vegan sports nutrition information you want, go to the source: Brendan Brazier's Thrive, which the author quotes often enough in her book to make you question why she wrote this, because she adds absolutely zero to the discussion on what to eat to help you become a better athlete, or to help maximize your workout routine.
The author begins by assuming you, the reader, know absolutely nothing about healthy eating. She gives you all the low-down on eating whole foods that you could get in any popular magazine on any newsstand in any town. It's all basic, basic stuff, and she spends about half the book on stuff you probably already know: more fruits and veggies, people! Eat less processed food!
She also has long, long lists of questions that you are supposed to ask yourself. I'm sorry but I just didn't need all that space taken up by mundane questions. I've already done enough self-assessment to undertake a lifestyle change, eat healthy and work out regularly. I came here for information, not a series of inane quizzes that are meant to be "insightful". What a waste of time!
If you are a vegan, do understand that she does not advocate veganism in this book. She asks you to listen to your body and do what feels right for you, including eating animal flesh if that's your bag. So why she calls the book Power Vegan I don't know.
I did not finish the book.Read more ›
I've found Rea Frey's book to be so inspiring and in less than one week's time, it has become my favorite summer read. It is now my "go to" book for quick, uncomplicated answers before preparing a meal or heading to the grocery store.
Unlike others I've read, this book is not a lecture on what not to eat, but in fact, just the opposite. She simply meets you 'where you are' and offers suggestions on what can be added to your diet to make it a more healthy option. And her recipes are easy and delicious!
Rea Frey's book is appropriate for anyone who is looking to improve their lifestyle through diet and fitness. Regardless of your food preferences, have fun with this book and explore. You won't be disappointed.
