This review is from: Skinny Bitch: A No-Nonsense, Tough-Love Guide for Savvy Girls Who Want to Stop Eating Crap and Start Looking Fabul (Kindle Edition)
Before reading this book I was a dedicated meat eater, an Atkins type of person. However, such was the power of "Skinny Bitch" that I became a vegan on the day I read it, and never looked back.

The humourous language made the content of the book more palatable, and I'm not 12 years old to either take offence at a few four-letter words or to believe that they actually had me in mind when hurling the abuse. Make no mistake, the authors are very knowledgeable and serious about what they believe in, but at the same time they are trying to appeal to the better you, to awaken your comapssion and help you return to your natural cravings. When I put the book down, I took a long hard look at myself, and realised that it is not a bloody piece of flesh that appeals to me, but a colourful display of fruit and vegetables. I also realised that I wouldn't be inclined (or able) to catch, kill, disembowel and then (!) eat! I'd much rather pull a carrot from the ground.

Eating plants gave me great digestion, an amazing choice of flavours (I'm really excited about my food now), and a clear conscience. I don't have to think about e-coli or other pathogens anymore. My endurance is much better. But even without those benefits, I would have chosen to be vegan because I know it is the right way to be - and therefore for the first time in my life I follow a 'diet' without a slightlest effort.

I am amazed, however, that this really harmless lifestyle can cause so many emotions in others. Those negative reviews - seriously, people? Militant vegans? Agenda? How come eating veggies is suddenly radical? Myself, I am very grateful that Rory nad Kim decided to advertise their beliefs in this very marketable way - way to go b****es!
