    Um, not defending the book at all. I dislike it. But isn't Mark's nutrition knowledge self-taught? I'd be careful about throwing that reasoning around if you don't want to be consistent about it. You might talk someone out of giving him a chance.

    Many if not most of the best books I've read on a variety of topics are from self-taught authors. They manage to see past the "rules" and write things much closer to reality, and much more practical.

    I haven't read the book but I'd probably be a bitch too if I had to suffer through veganism to maintain being skinny. That's pure hell.

    This is one of the exact thoughts that went through my head as I switched from veganism! Funny old world...

    Read the book, found it obnoxius but at the time I wasn't primal and did incorporate more vegan meals into my daily diet. I never felt satisfied. N.E.V.E.R.

    When I rebounded, I rebounded hard with sugar, salt and other fake foods. A vegan lifestyle is extremely difficult to maintain, especially if you don't live in an urban area. My body needs animal protein.
