This book blew my mind! The authors employ a very blunt, no-nonsense approach to healthy eating. They support veganism as the healthiest lifestyle option, but they provide enough information to allow the reader to draw her own conclusions about what works for her. Personally, I plan to integrate a lot of their ideas into my family's lifestyle.
I was surprised that, after all the hype about this book, I hated it. No alcohol. No smoking. No pop. No sugar. No carbs. No dairy. No meat. At one point they called the readers fat pigs at the trough. I just couldn't get into the tone of this book. It was not for me.
This is a very informative book about what it in our food. BEWARE, it is written by vegans, and they are advocating becoming a vegan. They are, in fact, trying to scare you into it. If you can deal with that, it is a very interesting and informative book.
The title of this one grabbed me. I figured with that kind of attitude, the diet has to be really good. Well, I was sadly dissapointed. The advice is to stop eating all dairy, all meat, eggs, fish, sugar,caffeine, additives, sweeteners, soda, etc. It is basically an advertisement of the vegan lifestyle and has some horrendous stories about the meat industry I wish I hadn't read.
Wow, I was so impressed with this book! I expected it to be gimmicky, but instead I was totally wowed by the innovative ideas and careful research presented in this book. The girls' approach is a bit unusual, but I can't wait to try out their ideas. Highly recommended!!
