If you're into New Age philosphy, then you might like this book. But it doesn't appear the author has any scientific backing for some of her claims. And enough already about colon cleansing. Still and all, there is some good basic information if you're interested in removing the meat from your diet. Just don't be 'scared' into it by some of this author's information.

The first edition of this book was very good. It was scientifically based information that did not go off into 'New Age' fantasies about being a vegetarian. Unfortunately, this new edition seems to be written for a gullible crowd that is more interested in fuzzy science than in factual information about being a vegetarian. The author cannot prove many of her claims, especialy the parts about toxins and cleansing the body through the colon. There are no references included for any of the health claims that are made. If you want to buy a book about being vegetarian buy something else.

I found this book just as I was ready to transition from a 'meat-eating vegetarian' to going all the way veggie. I bought this book over a year ago and I use it as a resource and a source for encouragement all the time. Extremely informative-yet light hearted.

Dear Readers, Writing about what people eat is always a dangerous topic. How and what we eat is wrapped up in our psyche, the way we choose to live and it says a lot about how we feel and/or think about life. I purposely wrote this book with lots of room for you to be YOU¿while starting to guide you on your path to eat less or no meat. There is no, one, sure-fire way to do anything, and not just one reason to make a change. Everyone has his or her own, specific reasons for wanting to become a vegetarian. So, in this guide, not only did I try to touch on almost everyone¿s reason for wanting to go veg, but also I included a few differing step-by-step approaches to help you transition to vegetarianism (to suit various tastes--so to speak)! Therefore, each of the 6 sections in the book lead you at your own pace, (as you will see, I have you skip or read through parts that apply to your desires), into a plant based diet. Included is a 12-step program for going veg that just about anyone can use. Also included are suggestions for what to eat and still stay healthy when going ¿cold turkey¿. I even include the impact your diet has on the earth so you can feel even better about your choices. And for those of you who are already vegetarians, this book can lead you onto eating even healthier via some food combining tips, supplements for the vegetarian and how to eat right for your climate, and even help you make your case to those who oppose your diet. And don¿t forget the valuable Appendixes packed with vegetarian resources! My overall goal with this book is to get the world to eat cleaner, understand some basics of nutrition, be healthier, feel better and make their diets interesting, delicious and fun. I hope you¿ll enjoy the journey, and thanks for your continued support!
