The book was quite repetitive as the author promoted the good reasons for a vegan diet. His reasons were primarily for good health and the basis of that seemed to be low-fat and high fiber. I have been an ovo-lacto vegetarian for about 10 years. I can see his point about how eating eggs and dairy is still eating too much fat, especially since I tend to eat a lot of dairy. I'm interested in reading his more recent book _21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart_.

There actually was a lot of good information in this book, like about B-12 and the tendency to eat too much protein. I felt the book was balanced. It did not have the anger and animosity against those who choose not to eat a vegan diet which I have seen in a couple of other books. It went into detail on a few studies. I did not actually read every bit skimming over sections that do not pertain to me and thumbing through the recipes and menus which was a good portion of the book. I suppose it is for readers like me that the author repeats the main points many times throughout the book. ( )
