    I thought this was a great introduction to veganism, but more importantly, it inspired simply a healthy lifestyle. It was informative and friendly. It confirmed things I already knew, but added so much more to the plate! While I am neither vegetarian nor vegan, this book gave me plenty of food for thought! All puns aside, authors Ben and Brett show how eating healthy and exercising moderately can really make a difference in the quality of our lives. The exercises were straight forward, and the start-up programs were realistic. Even the 2 week vegan diet plan was definitely worth a try. If you’re trying to lose weight, or just want to live healthier, The Vegan Athlete is a great place to start, as well as continue if you’re no longer a beginner.Good recipes at the back too, and ideas for substituting ingredients to your existing recipes. That was pretty cool.

    Uninspiring, half-hearted look at Vegan nutrition, April 10, 2013

    I’m very sorry to say I did not enjoy this book. For starters, it was a great deal thinner (few pages) than I would have expected a book on athletic nutrition and was all in black and white – which for me (being very visual) is a boo-boo. Honestly, it seemed as though it was written by someone who is not vegan and or had no enthusiasm/love for veganism at all. Some of the recipes include honey, which if you are a strict vegan you would not use and neglected to mention that honey can be easily substituted with Agave syrup, or molasses. There are very few inspiring recipe’s mentioned (only 16 if I recall) and a large section of the book is just various physical exercises you can do for health, which could be found in any fitness book whether you’re vegan or not! I think for a serious athlete or budding vegan, there are plenty of other, much more inspiring books that would better help you achieve your goals.

    let me just say first that i really admire Brett Stewart and have enjoyed his books and followed the routines he’s created.
    So, when The Vegan Athlete was coming out i pre ordered it. I have been vegan for a year now and have been searching for
    “the one” book that sums up health, fitness, and nutrition on a vegan diet for the average person. Yes, I’ve read Brendan Brazier’s books and they are very informative but hard to work into everyday life.
    Author Ben Greene gives a whole hearted effort presenting the social and environmental reasons to become vegan and how to try to transition yourself into the vegan lifestyle but it seems like an unnecessary large part of the book. If you want to be a vegan, get a book on that. I wanted this book to be about If you are a vegan and want to work on strength and endurance and the foods that will help you achieve your goals
    As with Stewart’s other books he focuses on body weight exercises and most of them are printed in his “7 weeks to getting ripped”(which is a great book by the way). This book could have been the grail for me and i really wanted to be,but it lacks the information that the title promises.
