You'll never find an 'amazing discovery' that has been isolated in a pork chop,
This review is from: Fit For Life (Paperback)
I loved this book. I originally read 'Easyweigh to Lose Weight' by Allen Carr (also available on Amazon.co.uk and on which I have given an almost identical review. ) 'Easyweigh' is based on the principles of this book 'Fit for Life'. All my life, every time I ate the wrong things, I felt sluggish, was constipated, and just instinctively knew my diet (meat and dairy for instance) was not doing me any good. Morally, I have no problem with the thought of killing and eating animals for food. I was brought up in a meat and two veg environment; a main meal did not feel like a meal unless it had these things...meat, potatoes, veg, and maybe fruit, or something dairy for pudding. I never questioned the order in which I ate my food, or the rightful place of meat or milk in my diet. We just eat sensibly from the four food groups in order to remain healthy - or so our belief systems tell us. However, an hour into this book, I knew I would never eat meat personally again. It was like a light going on in my head. Without actually describing it in so many words, I could see what I was doing to my body through my diet...how I was dried up and dehydrated, with up to three months worth of rotting dead animal backed up inside my colon. Yummy. No wonder I had had bad breath, a swollen tummy and constipation. I did not for one moment think this book would stop me eating meat. Yes, if you read this book you will definitely change your eating habits, and definitely lose weight. You will also probably convert to become a vegan, or at least a vegetarian. But why does that have to sound like an apology? Why should it be a bad thing? Veggies, fruit and other plants are natural foods for humans to eat. Every time there is a great discovery of a compound that helps cancer or other human maladies, it comes from the plant kingdom. You'll never find an 'amazing discovery' that has been isolated in a pork chop. Harvey also blows apart the myths of brainwashing and learned belief systems. I don't feel like I am missing out by stopping eating meat; I don't feel deprived. I don't feel miserable at the thought of a meat free life. Instead, I feel like I am on the edge of a jump into a new life... I feel excited by the changes that are happening in my body. I feel as if I have been set free.
