Thinking of going Veg?

Or maybe you just need a little back-up material for all those questions you get when friends and family find out you've gone. THIS is the book for you! The answers are here. Find out great facts like - just how long does it take the human body to digest meat? (too actually starts to rot in your gut) Why should you be concerned with how cows are treated on a dairy farm? (because the hormones they pump into the cows to keep them lactating could be effecting your own hormones! And that's just one reason!) This book solidified my choice and has got me thinking of going Vegan. Don't know the difference? This book will explain that and SO MUCH MORE! Definitely one of the best Vegetarian information books I've read so far. A MUST for every Vegetarian and anyone considering going vegetarian.

Quick, simple, and straight-to-the-point

I went browsing for a book on the vegetarian lifestyle when I started considering the option. I picked it out because it was the smallest book. Wise choice. It's small, but it's packed with useful information and it's straight to the point. It explained the types of vegetarians and how to obtain all the nutrition that you need in each lifestyle. It's a small book, but packed with information and can be used as a quick and easy reference after reading. I highly recommend this little book!

Great for beginners or anyone who wants to eat healthier!!!

I bought this book a year ago when I was thinking about becoming a vegetarian. A year later I'm still a ovo-lacto vegetarian (the book goes over the differences), and about to cut out all egg products. I've also lost all the weight I've gained since high school (18 pounds) just from nixing the meat.This is the first book I bought on being vegetarian and it has proved to be invaluable. I don't think I could have stuck with the change in diet if I had not read this book.Ms. Wolfe does a great job covering everything you could want to know about going vegetarian, or just eating healthier! Knowing what to expect from my body as far as cravings and how to continue to get enough protein were incredibly helpful.There is also a great chapter about eating out!I would strongly recommend this to anyone who wants to go vegetarian or just cut back on meat. The book is easy to read and follow- perfect for anyone!


Wow, this book is truly amazing! Frankie Wolfe is such a gifted, clever writer who makes it easy to understand! I never knew how unhealthy I was until I read her book! I have done so much to change the way I eat now & have lost SO much weight from learning everything. You DO NOT have to be just a vegetarian to read this book. Im not & I still learned a whole bunch. Its wonderful, reccommend it to anyone who wants to be a healthy person!!

Easy-to-read guide

I recommend this book for those who are following vegetarian or vegan diets, or thoe who are thinking about changing their eating habits.Its reassuring tone made me feel that I CAN stick with a healthy, vegetarian diet.Chapters on nutrition were informative and easy to read, but didn't answer questions such as: WHY do I need this nutrient? If you're looking for more specifics on nutrition, you may need to look elsewhere.The book provides simple, logical tips for vegetarian survival while eating out.There are a variety of sample menus (but no recipes), and a good list of other resources such as organizations, books, and web sites.
