Being a fire fighter, this book and the author caught my interest. He is very strong in his belief that a plant based diet is the only way to go. I decided to follow his recommendations and switched to a plant based diet, no meat, fowl, and only occasional fish. If it has legs, I don't eat it. I will have to say, it was difficult to adjust to with the first two weeks sheer hell! Now that I have been on it for 3 months, things have leveled out, I've lost 25#, my cholesterol has dropped and my blood pressure is within normal range. If there is anything I would criticise, it would be the author's attitude that there is no way to accomplish an improvement unless strictly following his guidelines. Some people may not be able to be that rigid and may abandon a good program because they feel the need stay totally with the program. Mixing the book with some flexibility could give good results even if not becoming totally plant based. All in all, the book is interesting, informative and can work.

Some of the recipes are absolutely delicious. I have searched high and low for some of the ingredients, and was unable to find them, even in our local health food store. I just wish there was more information for transitioning from a meat eating diet to vegan. I don't like meat, but the rest of my family can't imagine not eating it. The recipes do not include nutritional information, and I don't feel reassured that they are balanced.
