EXCERPT

"Health and happiness are within reach of those who provide themselves with good food, clean water, fresh air, and exercise.

A ceaseless and relentless hand is laid on almost every animal to provide food for human beings.

Nothing that lives or grows is missed by man in his search for food to satisfy his appetite.

Natural appetite is satisfied with vegetable food, the basis for highest and best health and development.

History of primitive man we know, but the possibilities of perfected and complete man are not yet attained.

Adequate and pleasant food comes to us from the soil direct, favorable for health, and a preventive against disease.

Plant food is man's natural diet; ample, suitable, and available; obtainable with least labor and expense, and in pleasing form and variety."


ABOUT VEGETARIANISM

A vegetarian diet is a meal plan that contains mostly plants, such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds, and nuts, with little or no animal products.

Types of vegetarian diets include:

- Vegan: Diet consists of only plant-based foods.
- Lacto-vegetarian: Diet consists of plant foods plus some or all dairy products.
- Lacto-ovovegetarian: Diet consists of plant foods, dairy products, and eggs.
- Semi- or partial vegetarian: Diet consists of plant foods and may include chicken or fish, dairy products, and eggs. It does not include red meat.

Vegetarian diets most often lead to healthier outcomes:

Lower levels of obesity
Reduced risk for heart disease
Lower blood pressure
Compared to non-vegetarians, vegetarians usually eat:

- Fewer calories from fat (especially saturated fat)
- Fewer overall calories
- More fiber, potassium, and vitamin C

A well-planned, carefully monitored vegetarian diet can deliver good nutrition. Dietary recommendations vary with the type of vegetarian diet.

An appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes.

Ever since I started becoming first a vegetarian, and then a vegan, I have lost over 25 pounds and have started to build some real muscle for the first time in my life. The change has been truly life altering, and I have this book to thank for opening my eyes and getting me started on the right path.

This book while may be very good factually is much to dense for the average reader. Can't even force myself to read more than two chapters. Written in an almost british type of english which made understanding it a little bit tough, added with the denseness made it almost impossible to extract useable knowledge from the book. Plus its only 89 pages long.

Good description of the philosophies behind the different types of vegitarians. However, if you are eager for creative and delicious vegitarian recipies, then this is not the book for you.

This was a good read. I learned a lot about different veggies, different points of views.
