I was a vegetarian child of the '70's. I gained a stone a year steadily from the age of four, and eventually reached the heady heights of 22 stone as a committed adult 'healthy vegetarian', it took me years to do something about it. I have a childhood I don't care to remember, the bullying, the crying over my weight and my parents dedication to a veggie lifestyle. I found meat and got slim and healthy, my parents are still veggies, overweight, diabetic and propped up with pills...this book is fantastic, it's all true and I feel that anger too...read it, believe it, do it and live better!!
