5.0 étoiles sur 5 An essential book for all vegans 22 juillet 2011
Par fredmango - Publié sur
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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 don't become a "former" vegan - read this book! 3 mai 2016
Par Josey Jacques - Publié sur

I have been feeling the nudge to return to a vegan diet for quite some time now, and when I decided to obey it I determined that I would not fail this time (I have tried and failed twice before, for a total of 4.5 vegan years). I knew the answer was to be more conscientious about the nutrition of my diet, so I found and bought this book to give me a leg up.

Written by two Registered Dietitians who are vegans, the book covers a few of the main nutrients that vegans either tend to be deficient in, or are rumored to have difficulty getting. It provides a food guide for not just adults, but children as well, including sample meal plans for people with varying caloric needs. It also gives some great tips like what to do with leftover beans, how to feed a vegan teen, and how to make sure you get enough calcium in your diet.

I was thrilled to see that the authors also tell you straight out that every vegan – not to mention many omnivores – needs to take a B12 supplement (B12 deficiency-induced memory loss during my 1-yr stint as a Raw Vegan several yrs. ago scared me back into eating meat).

They also show you how nutritional research points to veganism as the healthiest overall diet, and get into the ethics of the diet at the end of the book (I learned some horrifying things I hadn’t heard before – and yes, I’ve seen the PETA videos).

The one negative I have to say about this book is that IMHO the authors provide too much encouragement in the way of eating processed vegan foods; i.e., the fake meats and cheeses, and dried cereal. Eating whole foods isn’t hard, and doesn’t take up that much time to prepare if you’re smart about it.

If there is ever a future edition of the book, I would also like to see the issue of grain sensitivity addressed. What’s a wannabe vegan to do whom grain bloats at the drop of a hat? The answer for myself is to eat more fruit and confine myself to one serving per day of the one grain that doesn’t cause me gas – white rice – but the authors glaze over the fact that many would-be vegans are grain-sensitive and recommend a minimum of five (!) half-cup servings of grain per day.

Which is why I am giving them four rather than five stars.

Those issues aside, if you are considering taking the plunge into a vegan diet, I highly recommend this book so that you will have the information you need to stick with it long-term, and not become a former vegan because you neglect your body’s nutritional needs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extremely useful and probably the best book I have on vegan nutrition -- full of information for newbies 2 mars 2013
Par Leanne - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've only been following a (mostly) vegan diet for a few months, and have found that the times when I've fallen away from it and have slipped back into eating dairy have been because I have felt stuck with what to eat and how many nutrients I need to get. I wish I had bought this book at the start! The authors are two registered dieticians, and the entire book focuses on all the health and nutrition needs that one needs to take into account when starting a vegan diet. A few months back, I also ordered Dr. Neal Barnard's 21-Day Kickstart book; while I enjoyed it and found it helpful, it focuses much more on persuading readers of the health benefits of a vegan diet, whereas this book focuses on the *how's* and *why's* of doing so.

The first few chapters provide thorough explanations of the nutrients you need and why you need them. Their discussion of why vegans need to take a B-12 supplement, for instance, is one of the best I've read. They also address issues about getting enough protein and about the soy controversy, and also have chapters covering pregnancy and breastfeeding, raising children, and being an athlete.

The best chapter -- and the reason I really wanted to get this -- is Chapter 7 The Vegan Food Guide. In this section, the authors lay out a vegan food pyramid, exactly what supplements to take, and sample menus. This chapter will be extremely helpful to me in planning out my meals. This chapter alone makes this the best book I've bought on veganism; it helped alleviate my worries about getting enough nutrients, and made everything very clear.

What I especially appreciate is how balanced their view is. For instance, they look at research that is both for and against certain aspects of vegan nutrition, and are up front with the fact that it's OK if occasionally things slip by in packaged goods. For instance, they let readers know that there are "hidden" animal ingredients in products like white sugar and maple syrup, but encourage readers to not get "bogged down" with stressing about it.

One of my favorite sections in the book is where the authors quote blogger Robert Mason, who talks about not trying to "strain credulity" by trying to prove that humans are naturally vegans. We most likely, Mason maintains, evolved by eating meat, and it's dishonest to deny it. That being said, Mason suggests that vegans instead focus on why they made the decision to eat as they do: "The argument for veganism has always been primarily ethical, and ought to remain that way. It's based on a concern for the future, not an obsessions about the past."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential Reading for Anyone Interested in a Complete, Nutritionally Sound Diet 29 juin 2011
Par DMR - Publié sur
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!
