This is the worst book i have ever read in my life and i hope the writers die from being malnourished. I'm serious, this book is awful, go kill yourselves writers.

Spent years and years saying I didn't care about all of the health nonsense and would eat steaks and chicken and cheese and oh how I loved ice cream!
This opened my eyes after picking it up on a
recommendation from my sister who is veggie rather than vegan. My husband and I have been vegan for 6 months and have both never felt better nor looked better. Much of the change to how we feel is intangible to anyone beside ourselves- we have more energy our digestive systems work better, my asthma (which I have had FOREVER) is gone and this year I got through my first summer in ten years without any hayfever medication. There have been countless other improvements and I am just so pleased that reading the book encouraged me to try the lifestyle change - "just to see!".
I can't recommend it highly enough.

Sucked
If you are thinking about becoming a vegan this is the book for you. If not do not read this book truly makes you feel bad about yourself

think before you judge, please.
I'm genuinely offended by reviewers who, rather than comment on the quality of the book, chose to criticize and disrespect those of us who choose to eat vegan or
vegetarian. Holding negative beliefs about a vegan diet are, of course, a person's right. However, when such beliefs are expressed in a dismissive and disrespectful way as they were here, it becomes a personal attack on an entire group of people. Thankfully, most of us will simply roll our eyes at yet another ignorant rant.

Sneaky
I cannot help but think this was written by PETA for PETA.

I love this book. It's a huge slap in the face. I believe it's flat out facts--the straight truth. You are left to make your daily decisions with the info you've read. I have altered my lifestyle and daily diet because of this book, eliminating some things (that are all so not necessary) and making others (that are just too hard to give up) highly limited. --THANK YOU Rory & Kim!

If you're looking for a book to just help you through dieting and lifestyle changes - whether it's to lose weight or just be healthy - I'd say you're better off reading something like The Spark! This didn't make me want to continue on a journey, this made me just want to stop eating again.

Although you have to be quite disciplined to follow the advice word for word, if you read it carefully, the ladies do mention that we are all human and that every now and then we are going to be eating junk food, reaching for a beer or committing other dietary misdemeanors. But they give great advice with solid background and the food plans are nutritious and without portion size, only an emphasis on taking the time to prepare, eat and enjoy, allowing your body the time to register satiety. This book changed my life and I always come back to it when I need a refresher. Yes, they do say if you can, eat fruit for breakfast, but their meal plans include more substantial offers. I struggle with two things; giving up coffee and still being able to do everything I need to do and they do put a lot of emphasis on meat-replacement items that I would probably focus less on but still enjoy very much. The number one thing I took away from this book is to cut out soda, energy drinks and artificial sweeteners (apart from animal products!), which made a huge difference in a short time. Give it a try, bitches!
