Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness: The Complete Guide to Building Your Body on a Plant-Based Diet by Robert Cheeke
Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness: The Complete Guide to Building Your Body on a Plant-Based Diet

P J, January 8, 2011

One of the most common comments is "Oh to develop muscle you HAVE to eat meat." No you don't. You dont' even have to use milk products. If you wonder how a Vegan Bodybuilder can do it, the book tells you how and gives you sample meal plans. A must for any bodybuilder so they can stop worrying over protein because after reading the book, you'll know how to get enough on a plant based meal. And the neat thing? It will help if the doctor is nagging you about Cholesterol. Meatless Monday's are in fashion so why not meatless bodybuilding. Good for those wanting to go Vegetarian and good for those who just want to cut out meat a bit. My gym manger looked through my copy and told me "There is some good stuff in there." And he knows what he is talking about.

Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison
Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone

P J, June 15, 2009

I purchased the cookbook and so far every recipe I have tried has ended up in dire need of fixing. They always leave me scrambling at the end when I make them so I don't hear "DO NOT serve me this again." Also the directions on some leave a lot to be desired. For example one recipe says add flour to the water you are cooking it in then drain the water. The flour did absolutely nothing. Either the author needs to learn what ingredients do or needs a much better editor. The book is currently holding my computer screen to a good height. That rates a 5. For food? 1 or 2.

Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease: The Only System Scientifically Proven to Reverse Heart Disease Without Drugs or Surgery by Dr. Dean Ornish
Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease: The Only System Scientifically Proven to Reverse Heart Disease Without Drugs or Surgery

After reading and starting the diet, the cholesterol test showed an overall score of 109. It has remained below 140 for the past 4 years reflection on how closely the other half has followed the diet. While keeping the other half company on the diet, I lost 100 pounds in 6 months, all of which returned when I resumed the SAD. The most recent exam of other halfs system showed no changes at all from the last exam 4 years ago. The disease has not progressed. The most recent changes we have made is to follow the diet more strictly in hopes of creating a reversal instead of no changes. Basic? It works if you work it. I recommend the book for anyone who has heart disease and wants to live.

Full of lots of recipes written in old fashioned cookbook style. They are basic recipes which you can easily modify to your tastes. I use it all the time for a reference and have my favorites marked. It isn't the modern showy one or two recipes per page. There are more than that on each page. It is one of my kitchen books while the others reside in the library I have in my home.

Charney's book is excellent. I have made quite a few recipes from it and each is a five star. His Dark meat Seitan and his Light meat seitan are both very good and very easy plus they are extremely easy to modify. He also teaches about the ingredients on the pages making it easier for you to modify to your taste and to better understand and seek recipes that will suit you.
