3.0 von 5 Sternen Okay 23. Januar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Eigentlich hoffte ich auf mehr Info als bei C. Norris, aber bahnbrechende Neuigkeiten bietet das Buch nicht. Trotzdem ganz nett und informativ geschrieben. Die Rezepte hatte ich persoenlich nicht gebraucht, lieber mehr Tabellen.
P.S apropos Tabellen, diese sind in der Kindleversion eigentlich nicht entzifferbar, da zu klein geschrieben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A really useful book for vegan women 25. Juli 2013
Von Leanne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
When I became vegan a few months ago, I bought a bunch of books, and the most useful of all of them -- from a nutrition standpoint -- was Vegan for Life: Everything You Need to Know to Be Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet. That book was incredibly helpful for me in terms of understanding how to make sure that I met my nutritional needs.

When I saw that Virginia Messina, one of the co-authors of _Vegan for Life_, had this new book out, I was really curious about it, but wasn't sure if it would have enough new information to warrant purchasing it. I asked a reviewer about it in the comments section of his review, and took his advice to order it. I'm very glad I did!

Virginia Messina is the primary author, but JL Fields contributed the recipes and the chapter called "Veganism beyond the Plate" to it. In the introduction, Messina explains that this book is discusses "how to eat to lower your risk of breast cancer, diabetes, and heart disease; manage hunger and eat intuitively; protect your skin and brain as you get older; boost your mood; and deal with PMS, cramps, infertility, and painful conditions like arthritis and migraine headaches." The book also includes chapters on being a vegan athlete and finding your "happy weight" naturally through intuitive eating and a vegan diet.

If you're new to a vegan lifestyle, the first section opens with information about how to transition into it. Even though I've been eating this way for a few months, I still picked up new tips.

Also, I found it interesting that Messina mentions that she previously worked for Dr. Neal Bernard's Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). The PCRM group has a free program called the "21-Day Kickstart" that helps you make the transition to vegan eating by offering meal plans and daily emails with motivational tips. Whereas the Kickstart program encourages you to go vegan all at once, Messina offers the suggestion of transitioning more slowly to a vegan lifestyle in this book, which I find to be more helpful. (Dr. Bernard's book 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart: Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Your Health is a good book to check out if you're interested in the program, but you can do the whole thing for free.)

Unlike Dr. Joel Furhman's program in Eat to Live: The Amazing Nutrient-Rich Program for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss, Revised Edition, Messina also encourages her readers to eat whole grains and oils in moderation.

Messina and Fields have also set up a free forum for vegan women. I've only taken a quick glance at the nascent site, but it looks like it'll be a great resource once it gets more traffic and visitors.

I also really liked JL Fields' chapter on how to pick out vegan-friendly shoes, clothes, and beauty products. She explained a few concepts, like what the logos mean on bottles, that were really helpful, and gives a list of vegan-friendly brands like Abba and Aubrey.

If you already own _Vegan for Life_, you probably don't need this book since VFL covers similar information, but if, like me, you're interesting in learning as much as possible about a vegan diet and how it specifically affects women, I'd definitely recommend adding this book to your library since it complements VFL so nicely. If you don't own either and are trying to choose between them, I'd say to go with this one since it covers a lot of similar information as _Vegan for Life_, with, obviously, more information that is focused on women's unique nutritional needs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic, Balanced, and Encouraging! 4. Juli 2013
Von R. Smirh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the book I have been looking for. The information is balanced and practical. It makes becoming vegan simple, without ignoring some of the challenges that might be encountered along the way. I particularly appreciated the nod to healthy body image and a healthy relationship with food, all within a framework of compassion - for ourselves and for animals. I found this book to be both positive and useful, which I think can be tricky. Thank you to the authors for a wonderful vegan foundation!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Vegan For Her 18. August 2013
Von amazon customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
What initially appealed to me about this book is that there is NOTHING faddist about it, unlike so many other vegan books out there. The commonly accepted advice that McDougall, the Healthy Herbivore and T. Colin Campbell give - to go ultra low or even no fat and not to worry about protein - just did not work for me. It made me sick. And when I read a vegan blog, Bonzai Aphrodite - Failing Health As a Vegan, it really spoke to me. I started eating more protein, nuts and healthy extra virgin olive oil, etc. and I felt better within the first week. There was no need to abandon my plant-based eating after all. Further, I fear that advice would discourage many from pursuing a plant based diet.

I look forward to the author's newest book "Never Too Late To Go Vegan" which is a primer for us folks over 50!

Highly, highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book every female vegan should own. 9. Juli 2013
Von Dustin G. Rhodes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Ginny Messina is easily one of the most honest, reliable, intelligent and talented vegan health professionals I know of. There's so much exaggerated, untrue and possibly dangerous information about vegan diets that it's sometimes overwhelming trying to separate fact from fiction; after many years of being vegan, I occasionally find myself stumped or tempted to believe some outrageous promise that I know is too good to be true. But I trust Ginny Messina without reservation, and she's the first person I turn to when I get lost.

Why?

Messina does something kind of extraordinary: she tells the truth. When the truth hurts. Or when we don't even know what the truth is. Her moral compass points toward the billions of animals who are killed annually to become food, yet she delivers accurate information about vegan diets that don't always make them sound simple. In other words, rather than promising a glamorous lifestyle with perfect health, it's just about facts and science.

I have learned more from Ginny (and her co-author from Vegan for Life, Jack Norris) than any other person. She's a gifted communicator -- able to make tedious topics accessible and often interesting. She is, to borrow a cliche, a breath of fresh air.

I am giving copies of this book to the women in my life because the information is important, useful, life changing -- for the animals that are spared and the vegans who maintain vibrant good health. What's so great about this book is that it covers vegan nutrition from birth till death, and how to get from one to the other, with as much energy, health and -- most important of all -- compassion as possible. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exceeded my expectations! 5. Februar 2014
Von JL4321 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was given this book as a gift & honestly didn't think I would learn much b/c I'm already very familiar with vegan nutrition. But I'm glad I read it anyway because the book exceeded my expectations, and I learned a plethora of new information. I would recommend it for new and seasoned vegans!
