Vegetarian : The Complete Guide to Adopting a Healthy Vegetarian Diet by
Vesanto Melina, Brenda Davis, Victoria Harrison
Becoming Vegetarian is a comprehensive and up-to-the
minute guide to achieving a healthful vegetarian lifestyle. Written by
three highly qualified dietitians, all of the key questions which arise
for those who are beginning a dietary shift away from animal products
are addressed, as well as those questions long term vegetarians have who
want to ensure that their dietary pattern is nutritionally adequate.
"There are many reasons to become vegetarian,
including personal health, costs to the environment and the treatment of
animals. Whatever your philosophical bent, this book provides the
nuts-and-bolts information needed to maintain a healthy diet. As an
athlete, I found it especially helpful to understand the function of fat
and the different kinds of fats. Although this book helped ease my
conversion into a lacto/ovo vegetarian a year ago, and I did enjoy the
section on training non-vegetarians to understand the meatless choice, I
would recommend the book highly to anyone, vegetarian or not, wanting to
understand human nutritional needs. Food has an enormous social subtext
and is surrounded by so much myth and fable it is hard to know what to
believe. This book, in its sensible and attractive way, is completely
credible." -- Leslie Reissner, Berlin, Germany
"Few books on vegetarian nutrition are as comprehensive and
accurate as Becoming Vegetarian..." (Journal of The American
Dietetic Assoc. May 1996) -- Journal of The American Dietetic Assoc.
