1.0 out of 5 stars Needless Scaremongering, 14 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Skinny Bitch: Bun in the Oven - A Gutsy Guide to Becoming One Hot (and Healthy) Mother! (Paperback)
I bought this book as a long-time vegan currently carrying my first baby. I had hoped for a detailed analysis on how to have a healthy vegan pregnancy - how much of which nutrients I ought to be getting and whatnot, maybe some recipes, how to tell if I'm becoming deficient in anything... veganism is important to me and I'd love to be able to set an example of just how healthy and happy a vegan pregnancy can be.

Instead, I got one chapter after another of needless scaremongering. The pages are filled with preachy ranting about the evils of the livestock farming industry, the companies that make toiletries and cosmetics, the government and so on. Some of the advice verges on dangerous (for example, that you should consult a naturopath or herbalist BEFORE seeing a medical doctor).

This book was a total waste of my money and time. Any vegans looking for advice on how to eat during pregnancy would be best off looking elsewhere. Thanks, Skinny Bitches, for giving us all a bad name.
