An essential book for all vegans 22 juillet 2011
Par fredmango - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book was mainly written for people who follow a vegan diet or are already considering it. It's a complete overview of vegan nutrition in all stages of life. While there is a short introduction on "why being vegan"... the authors quickly jump to the juicy part and cover the nutritional information all vegans need to know.

The authors have done their research! This is not a classic vegan book repeating the same old arguments. It provides clear nutritional guidance to help vegans stay healthy and design the most adequate diet possible. It's up to date science!

You'll discover interesting pieces of information in this book. For example:

- Vegans can benefit from getting adequate amounts of protein. While it's true that almost nobody suffers from true protein deficiencies in the West, not getting adequate protein can result in muscle mass loss and poor bone health.
- Vegans should take a B12 supplement, even if they just started the diet. The old idea of "wait three years to do it because your body has reserves" is not the wisest.
- Why some vegans crash and fail to thrive, reverting back to animal foods, because they make their diet too restrictive and idealistic
- Getting the RDA for calcium is important for vegans. You'll discover which greens have a negative calcium balance and how to make sure you get enough calcium on a vegan diet, even without supplements
- Other nutrients to watch out about on a vegan diet (or any diet), such as vitamin D, iodine, zinc, etc.
- Ideas for making a vegan diet fun and easy to follow.
- Why it makes sense to take a vegan DHA supplement
- How to adapt a vegan diet to meet the needs of growing children, pregnant women, older people, etc.

This book does not contain a recipe section, but it does contain a lot of meal ideas.

It's filled with tables and useful references, so I would suggest buying the print version, as some of the tables are not as convenient to look at on the Kindle version.

You can tell that the book has been written by professional nutritionists. It's a very good reference, and a great starting point for any vegan.

An excellent, thorough and honest look at vegan nutrition. 28 juin 2011
Par Dustin G. Rhodes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have both been a vegan and a grateful fan of the work of Ginny Messina and Jack Norris for many years. Both of them are truly unique among advocates of plant based diets simply because they refrain from hyperbole and don't promise that eating buckets of kale will lead to a life void of the inevitable: old age, sickness and death. That's not to say that veganism has not been a boon to my personal health: it has. But, like everyone else, I will die some day, and vegan eating doesn't change that.

Ginny and Jack keep the arguments about veganism all about the animals, even though they are both dieticians and devoted to human health and nutrition. But they are interested in healthy, happy vegans, too. They have written, at their own time and expense, for many years about the benefits and pitfalls of plant-based eating. They have made recommendations, and changed their positions many times as the science continues to unfold about human nutrition (which should be considered new and emerging). They have done so with kindness, compassion and without a hint of arrogance.

Vegan for Life, a brilliant double-entendre, is an exceptional book. If it's not the very first, it has to be among the very few that paints a reasonably complex picture of vegan eating that goes over every facet--- the good, the bad, the ugly and everything in between. They don't claim that everyone must eat ultra low-fat (quite the opposite); they don't push raw diets (or even recommend them, actually). I actually suspect that they will receive a fair amount of criticism for this book because of its refusal to oversimplify and paint with a broad brush; because they don't promise miracles, and because they admit that there's much we simply don't know about nutrition. But that's precisely what I find refreshing about their work, and this book in particular. Their honesty is precisely why I trust them.

I believe that all humans can become vegan. That's also my wish. However, I believe that it's not a one-size-fits-all way of eating, and we have yet to figure out how every person can become vegan, and stay vegan, successfully --- enjoying abundant health. Vegan for Life gives lots of useful information for people wanting to maintain good health, and for people who feel like they're struggling to get what they need. Vegan for Life shows that it's not impossible for everyone eat, and stay, vegan.

In my opinion, this book renders all other books on vegan nutrition written to date useless (not because other authors necessarily wrote bad books, but because this book incorporates the latest and greatest). And alas, Vegan for Life is written for the long time and brand new vegan alike; all of us are wise to pay attention because --- as the title suggests --- animal advocates want people to become vegan for life. Ginny and Jack are just the people to show us all how.

Essential Reading for Anyone Interested in a Complete, Nutritionally Sound Diet 29 juin 2011
Par Dr. Marion Rollings - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
After years of reading the authors' excellent blogs, I am very happy to have their outstanding book. Having been vegan for a number of years, I am always interested in keeping on top of the literature so that I do not develop any nutrition-related health issues. This book is based upon current, sound research and is presented in an easily read, enjoyable format. The authors are nationally (and perhaps internationally) respected professionals in their field-and both are Registered Dietitians. As a licensed professional myself, I am always concerned about the credentials of those who advise others on diet and health matters. This book is written by qualified, credentialed professionals.
That being said, I have to add that this is not a boring tome on nutrition or ethics--it is an easily read, fun yet informative book. Filled with easy to follow advice and suggestions.
They cover everything from how to eat, what to eat, and why one would eat vegan (e.g., ethical issues, health issues). Detailed discussions of supplements and menu suggestions are included. This is essential reading for anyone considering a transition to a vegan diet as well as those who have been vegan for some time.
I highly recommend Vegan for Life and thank and applaud the authors on this great book. It is my new "Bible" and go-to book for eating healthy and well. I ordered the hard copy for my patient waiting room and ordered the digital for my Ipad. I look forward to their future books!

Great book with some slight reservations 28 octobre 2011
Par A N 3 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I think this a great book on Vegan nutrition. It covers all aspects of a Vegan diet, and how one can get all the proper nutrients from either supplements or different foods. These type of books are few and far between, so having this type of book is much appreciated.

Now my reservations. For some background, a few months ago I finished the book "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease" by Esselstyn, and to make a long story short, this book advocates a Vegan diet, but also a low-fat diet without added oils, nuts, avocados, etc. Its not an easy diet to follow, but it is proven to work against heart disease.

So back to this book, which I thought would be helpful to me as well. So I start reading and the authors start talking all about the great things a Vegan diet does for you. O.K. great. But then I start reading their take of how variations of a Vegan diet, like low-fat Vegan, or raw food Vegan is BAD for you, without giving many details. It was this "holier-than-thou" attitude that was a bit of a turn-off for me. Especially since Vegans get this from meat-eaters all the time, and now I have to hear basically "my Vegan diet is better than your Vegan diet" from the authors of this book.

Instead it would have been real nice for the authors to add a chapter for people on these diets and to give them advice on proper nutrition as well. Afterall, the book does have chapters for other groups, like those over 50. Or, at the least, the authors should acknowledge that people are on these diet modifications for a reason, and just live with that.

In any case, this is a good book that I found very helpful and I'd highly recommend it, especially if you are a straight Vegan, nothing more, nothing less. If you are on a low-fat or Raw Vegan diet, its still worthwhile but just not maybe as much as it could have been, if the authors had a bit more empathy for why people are on these diets.

Must-have resource for all vegans and vegan-curious 20 août 2011
Par Joselle M. Palacios - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I wish I had read this book when I first went vegan a few years ago. Although I find a vegan diet to be convenient, delicious, and healthy, there are a lot of myths, both positive and negative, that fly around and this book combats them all with evidence-based pragmatism. Vegan diets are neither deadly protein drains or miraculous cure-alls. As a nursing student who has studied nutrition and anatomy and physiology extensively, I wholeheartedly endorse Norris and Messina's book. You will:

-learn about the many benefits of a vegan diet and get honest answers about the few pitfalls
-get the facts on which supplements are of concern to vegans
-get diet plans for pregnant and lactating women, infants, children, adolescents, athletes and people who want to lose weight (thank you for not promoting the lie that following a vegan diet means you'll be skinny! In fact, I gained weight after going vegan!)
-meal plans that focus on convenience, accessibility and affordability
-get the truth about soy (a bean!) and other nutrition talltales

While Norris and Messina encourage eating whole foods, they don't knock vegan processed foods, which frankly can help meet protein and calorie needs while adding variety and fun to the diet. They debunk myths about raw food diets while also acknowledging that yes, eating an abundance of raw plant foods is healthful but so is eating cooked beans.

My favorite part of the book is their section on different types of scientific studies. In addition to being a nursing student, I'm a former editor at a peer-reviewed clinical journal who spent years reading studies submitted by physicians and other health care providers. I've seen terrible studies and great ones. And I learned how to read beyond the press releases and really get behind the data. If you want help in wading through nutritional gimmicks, you need to understand how studies are conducted and how to interpret data. Kudos for Norris and Messina for including this important and easy-to-understand section.

Finally, they acknowledge that the greatest reason to go vegan is for the animals. They clearly explain the problems with animal agriculture and also discuss whether a vegan diet is feasible for the whole world. If you want straightforward facts that doesn't sugarcoat a very complex topic and you want practical steps to become vegan, this is the book for you. I also highly recommend Jack Norris' great blog, jacknorrisrd.com and the work he does at veganhealth.org.
