Many patients that I see in my medical nutrition practice request specific detailed information in order to move toward a vegetarian lifestyle. Here is a book that will guide them along such a path. It will also assist current vegetarians to reach a new level of understanding by offering specific instruction for improving food habits. The instruction includes the most up-to-date and scientific data regarding food protein. By using the egg as a model of the near perfect protein source and comparing vegetarian foods with the egg, we now have available tools for increasing the benefits of protein from non-meat sources. "Patients with certain medical problems should consider removing red meat and other animal proteins from their diet and moving toward vegetarian food sources. Some of these medical problems include the following: hypoglycemia, obesity, digestive disorders including diverticultitis and other colon problems, gout, and elevated cholestrol. Many specfic studies have shown that the vegetarian diet may help with these problems. This book presents a clear and sophisticated road map for becoming a vegetarian or moving in this direction." --Dr Martin Feldman
Publishers Weekly, 1987-12-18 The author of The Complete Guide to Health and Nutrition here succeeds in presenting what he calls ``a comprehensive statement on the value of vegetarianism.'' Passionately argued, this well-documented, readable volume makes a thorough, albeit somewhat familiar, case for vegetarianism as a way of eating and a way of life. There are discussions against eating animal products, such as eggs, cheese and milk, on the wasteful economics of raising animals for food, on why people become vegetarians, and how poor nutrition causes illness and good nutrition protects against disease. Utilizing grains and legumes, Null suggests nutritious food combinations that are high in complete protein, in a diet devoid of animal products. The 95 unusual recipesincluding the Peter Pan rice casserole, which calls for peanut butter, brown rice, sunflower seeds and shallots, seasoned with a blend of thyme and tarragonare inexpensive, facile and low in fat and cholesterol.
