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.

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.
Thanks for your responses guys! I need to show this thread to my sister who just finished the book and passed it on to my mother...
This is one of the exact thoughts that went through my head as I switched from veganism! Funny old world...

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.
