This book is the push I needed. I am 42 and have been a size 20 for years. Started this book on a Thursday and by the following Monday I had given up coffee'former Starbucks Barista'& dairy. This is the lifestyle guidance I never knew I was searching for but desperately needed. Wonderful book that I thankfully checked out from the library and now buying. Great Book with simple language and information for everyone. Went shopping and am down a size in jeans.

I am extremely disappointed in the deceptive practices used by the two authors to sell books and shove their animal rights agenda down the throats of people who purchased the book in hopes of obtaining sincere advice on how to become healthier. I read this book from cover to cover and walked away with the same knowledge about nutrition that I did before I purchased the book.

The authors may actually hurt their cause rather than help it. If they were not honest when titling the book why should I believe that the information it contains is truthful?

This book used graphic and nauseating descriptions of slaughterhouse accounts to shock and disgust readers into becoming vegans. Personally I don't believe that either author is concerned about the health or well being of humans. Their focus is on the treatment of animals and whatever kickback or praise they will receive from PETA.

I would not recommend this book to anyone who is trying to better their health or anyone with a weak stomach.

    I loved it.

    Yes, they cuss a lot and yes, they do go into gory details about animal slaughter but hey it's the truth and people should wake up to what they are eating. For those of you who like to pretend that meat and dairy come from the grocery store only, don't read the book it will destroy your fantasy. We were vegan already and this book just reminded us why. The second book is all recipes and every one I have tried is quite good. The do go heavier on the fat than I am used to so I just make adjustments. My teenage daughter loved this book and read it in one day. It is a very easy read with common sense information. I hesitated to buy it for months and when I finally caved in I was glad I did.

    A reviewer

    the first chapter was captavating, 'Aspartam', 'When methyl alcohol, acomponent of aspartame, enter your body7, it turns into formaldehyde.' i thought WHAT!? this book is got to be read, my disappointment is that they tell you all these manufactures doing stuff to what you eat just for the big buck. i thought it was very hypocritical that they use names and brands of organic food manufactures you should buy from. maybe Rory and Kim are getting a little kick back themselves.? i guess you could call this a 'good' brain washing.

    PETA Lovers enjoy

    If you are a member of PETA or the like, this is the book for you. It's obvious that the "writers" are PETA-like organizers. Many chapters are basically the "writers" giving their personal feedback on the meat industry. They are vegans so no animal products at all are what they are pushing. If you are looking for good lifestyle changing books, this is not for you. I think they are looking to recruit for PETA, they aren't really trying to help you become healthier.
